About the Conference

South Africa is experiencing a worsening energy crisis. As the country’s energy demand grows, new initiatives are being undertaken to diversify the energy mix. Energy Storage Systems (ESS) offer a variety of solutions and are crucial to continuing the integration of renewable energy onto the grid. Among the energy storage options available, Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) is becoming a feasible solution to increase system flexibility due to its fast response and inexpensive nature. South Africa is making strides in deploying ESS systems and has launched construction on pioneering BESS projects. With an R18 billion estimated market revenue and 60 000 employment creation opportunities, South Africa needs to accelerate its plans for ESS deployment.

The Conference event brings together stakeholders in the energy storage industry to disseminate the most topical content. The Conference will focus on a variety of ESS and will address the legal framework, network and market aspects and finance available for the rollout of these technologies. It will explore and discuss priorities for energy storage technology, the latest advancements and the future of the industry.
