Energy Storage 2017: Opportunities and Challenges for Electric Grid, Wave, Hydropower and Other Sustainable Energies

We welcome you to the Energy Storage 2017 Meeting on Nov 5-6, 2017 at the LaSells Stewart Center at Oregon State University campus, Corvallis, Oregon.

Organized by Oregon State University (OSU) with assistance from the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR), this one-and-a-half-day symposium will be held on November 5-6, 2017 at OSU to bring together thought leaders driving the implementation of novel energy storage systems for the grid, wave and other power generation technology.

The goal of this meeting is to discuss the use of energy storage for the grid and the challenges pairing storage with different types of sustainable energy. The event will serve as a forum for industry, utility companies, academic and government researchers, and policy makers to discuss energy storage challenges in the Northwest region and across the country.
