AES shines a spotlight on energy storage in mining

The 2019 Australian Energy Storage Conference will leverage off the success of the 2018 event and bring more international speakers and perspectives to the local market.

The off-grid sector in Australia has emerged as one of the best business cases for energy storage and hybrid energy systems to reduce diesel and gas consumption for power generation. 

At this year’s Australian Energy Storage Conference, you will hear about the projects shaping the way energy is produced in outback Australia, powering the thriving mining sector and remote communities.

Across the two-day program energy and mining innovators will share their knowledge and expertise;  covering topics such as solar/battery/diesel hybrid systems, spinning reserve, and even hydrogen to power remote sites.

Taking place at the International Convention Centre, Sydney, the Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition will shed light on the business case and financial benefits of transitioning to cleaner and more efficient power generation.

Leading experts showcasing real-life projects and case studies

Ganesh Ganeshkumar, territory manager, AUS/NZ, Ecoult will outline how Ecoult’s systems, using UltraBattery, are being applied to the full range of stationary applications needed in the growth of energy storage market.

Juergen Zimmerman, development and technology manager at ABB’s Global Centre of Competence for Microgrids will present a case where a battery energy storage system was installed to replace spinning reserve currently provided by the existing generators with a PowerStore battery energy storage system.

Claude Morris, Microgrid technology leader, GHD will delve into a number of international case studies on microgrids and utility-scale energy storage; highlighting common threads to optimise systems and monetise value.

Owen Lock, manager AU/NZ – storage solutions will explore the performance of the Alinta Newman BESS since it was commissioned and the significance of the system in terms of future deployments of the technology.

In addition to an extensive conference program the Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition will feature a free-to-attend exhibition, exclusive site tours and a myriad of networking opportunities including a networking dinner cruise against the backdrop of the spectacular Vivid lights.
