Charging into the Future: The Impacts of Improved Battery Storage Technologies
Charging into the Future: The Impacts of Improved
Battery Storage Technologies
Georgia Institute of Technology; Scheller College of Business, LeCraw Auditorium Directions to Event
This program will focus on:
- The disruptive role batteries are beginning to have on grid operation, stability, carbon footprint and cost. The ability of batteries to serve as a buffer for variable sources such as wind and solar can finally provide a way for these clean sources to serve as practical alternatives to the predominantly hydrocarbon-based fuel used for grids and transportation. How do the needs of grids, micro- grids and electrical vehicles differ, and what impact does this have on battery design, features and benefits?
- How falling energy storage prices will drive adoption for utilities, homeowners, vehicle designers and car drivers. How will it change user behavior, and how soon can EV owners free from ‘range-anxiety?’ Will we ever be able to be truly independent from the grid (and should we want to be)?
- Our speakers will include providers of energy storage systems for home, grid and automotive applications, as well as commercial storage systems for hospitals and data centers that seek ever- higher levels of up-time and
- This event will set itself apart by examining the impact technological and supply-chain advances will impact the business landscape and consumer adoption.
- During the networking reception there will be a Tesla display of their mock Supercharger, Powerwall connector and signups for test drives.
