The Flexible Energy Systems and Storage Forum will discuss policiesprocesses and technologies to get from the market of today to the flexible energy system of tomorrow. The question at the centre stage is whether battery and energy storage is an enabler and catalyst of such change, or is it simply one of the solutions?

Led by the key energy markets’ stakeholders, you will hear from regulators, power generation and utilities, TSOs and DSOs, energy services, aggregators, battery manufacturers and professional services firms from the UK and international markets.
