Call for Abstracts

Call for Abstracts for the 2018 Australian Energy Storage Conference Now Open 

As the Australian Energy Storage Conference transitions to Adelaide for 2018, it is important to explore and represent the many different applications, use cases, and technologies that make up the Energy Storage umbrella. This is not a ‘one size fits all’ technology, but rather has a ‘solution to fit every situation.’  The common outcome of energy storage, regardless of the energy source, is increased sustainability.  This can be the financial sustainability of a business through lower operating costs and efficiency or environmental sustainability by enabling higher penetrations of renewable energy and lowering carbon emissions.  In that vein, the theme of AES 2018 will be “Storing Energy for a Sustainable Future,” and take a wide focus on the technologies that will help us achieve these desired results.

Papers are sought on the following topics and areas:

Microgrid Case Studies (both on and off-grid)

Energy Storage for Peak Shaving/Load Shifting

Pumped Hydro Energy Storage

Mechanical Energy Storage (Flywheels and Compressed Air)

Thermal Energy Storage

Hydrogen (electrolysis and fuel cell case studies)

Software Solutions for Energy Storage

Utility Energy Storage (various applications)

Flow Batteries

Energy Storage for Mining, Telecom, and Remote Communities

Future Technologies

Pacific Island Case Studies

Key dates:

Abstract submission opens:  8 November 2017
Deadline for abstract submission: 6 February 2018
Presenters advised of abstract acceptance: 23 February 2018

As the experts in the industry, please do not confine yourselves to the listed topics above if you have an interesting case study on an alternate topic. All submissions will be reviewed and accepted based on merit.  Final session themes will be molded around the accepted presentations rather than the other way around.
