This one-day seminar will review Electrochemical Energy Storage in Canada and bring together a panel of academic, researcher and government advisor to explore the opportunities for Canada to develop efficient, economical storage solutions in order to achieve market penetration.
Understanding what the future energy system can, and should, look like is vital as we move towards more ambitious carbon budgets, and look for ways to solve the energy dilemma.
The seminar will focus on finding ways to overcome the issues of risk, political uncertainty, and technology limitations in available technology, that are holding the Canada back from wide-scale deployment of renewables. This seminar provides a cost-effective opportunity to enhance your knowledge of energy storage challenges and opportunities.
