ESNA 2018 | November 6-8, 2018 (Expo November 7-8)in Pasadena, California

Program

Breakout sessions, keynote panels and workshops build the ecosystem for energy storage. ESNA brings together some of the world’s most renowned thought leaders from the policy, industry and utility sectors to share best practices, explore new business models and overcome market and policy barriers.

Program Overview

In August 2017, thousands of stakeholders will gather in San Diego to pave the way for The Transition. Enabled by energy storage, The Transition implies a more efficient integration of energy resources, a shift in consumer behavior and engagement with the rise of the “prosumer,” as well as new market structures and participation mechanisms for distributed energy resources.
