As Australia’s energy transition continues on the back of lowering costs and consistent technological efficiencies, Renewable Generation is set to supply 29% of our electricity needs by 2020 should the industry maintain its current rate of development. As the penetration of renewables increases however, so does the need for large scale storage and the stability it provides.
While this transition has opened the door for new storage technologies such as South Australia’s Hornsdale Power Reserve, PHES accounts for over 95% of all energy storage capacity worldwide, arguably due to its longevity, reliability, and potential for scale – making it the clear solution to Australia’s looming storage needs.
It is in this atmosphere that Informa Australia are delighted to announce the 3rd annual Pumped Hydro Energy Storage Conference, held 25-26 February 2019 at the Swissotel Sydney.
Join us for a unique shared learning and networking opportunity; bringing together industry leaders, government representatives and key experts for a comprehensive 2-days of in depth case studies and project updates alongside energy market and investment analysis, commentary on policy and regulation, and discussion on the state of the industry and future opportunities.
