April 10, 2019
Santa Clara, California – Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, will present at the Energy Storage Association’s Annual Conference and Expo in Phoenix, scheduled from 16 - 18 April. As a member of the panel, Intertek’s Dr. Taylor Kelly will discuss the future of battery storage – including the rapidly expanding market for lithium-ion batteries, research and development efforts, and the overall outlook of battery technology as a source for supporting the electrical grid. The conference brings together utilities, technology developers and other stakeholders to study and exchange knowledge about the advancement and integration of technology to support electric service.
Dr. Kelly said: “Grid-scale battery storage is growing at an exponential rate and will continue to grow as more states implement aggressive renewable energy targets. Batteries are flexible in what they can do, making them a seemingly all-in-one type of energy storage solution for integrating more renewable energy and providing resilience to the grid. Lithium ion is a popular battery technology because it is the most energy-dense and efficient battery available on the market today. While lithium ion is the battery of the present, what will be the battery of the future? Please join me in this panel discussion to talk about current battery research and more.”
