Dr Graham Cooley - CEO, ITM Power
Graham will speak about the potential for Power-to-Gas energy storage and specifically about the Power-to-Gas project at Mainova Aktiengesellschaftsite in Schielestrasse, Frankfurt am Main, where ITM Power recently delivered its first Power-to-Gas plant. The plant, for the Thüga group – the largest network of energy companies in Germany - is due to be commissioned in December 2013.
Gareth Brett – CEO, Highview Power
Gareth will speak about Highview Power's novel utility scale storage and power system - the technology involves cryogenic Energy Storage using liquefied air or liquid nitrogen as the storage medium. Highview is testing a pilot demonstrator hosted by SSE (Scottish & Southern Energy) and jointly funded by the UK’s Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC). The company's products include the Highview Cryo Energy System (a scalable, modular, energy storage system) and the Highview Cryo GenSet (modular): a zero emission alternative to a diesel genset or gas peaking plant.
Simon Daniel - CEO, Moixa Group
Simon will speak on the Moixa Group's MASLOW system, which powers DC (Direct Current) lighting and electronics from batteries charged at low-tariff times or from local solar resources. MASLOW storage assets can be made available to grid operators to provide distributed storage resources for local network and grid-scale needs.
Tony Davies - CEO, Atraverda
Tony will speak on the Atraverda bipolar battery technology breakthrough and its potential application for on-site energy storage (renewable backup and grid support) and telecom back up (mobile base stations). Atraverda's technology is based on ceramic lead acid batteries
John Taylor - Director, Saft UK
John will speak on Lithium-ion energy storage systems facilitating grid integration of renewables. Energy Storage & Renewables is one of the solutions addressed by Saft Groupe, headquartered in France. Saft supplies battery systems for both off-grid and on-grid schemes, using Ni-Cd, Ni-MH and Li-ion technologies.
Carlo Brovero - Proxhima Srl
Carlo will speak about the potential energy storage applications for Vanadium Redox batteries. Proxhima, an Italian company, has developed a proprietary modular design for a Vanadium Redox battery which it aims to deploy on a 'MegaWatt Scale' a project in partnership with an Italian utility company.
