Managing the Challenges of Energy Storage 2016

The electricity storage market offers tremendous promise for our future electricity grids. However, as the market evolves and advanced systems are deployed in the field, the promise of increased flexibility in our systems is overshadowed by complex challenges for grid operators, investors, developers, utilities, and end users. Drawing on global experience, this event will untangle these challenges and discuss the emerging and existing technologies, applications and the bankability of energy storage in MENA.
