In recent seminars we have talked about energy in remote communities, distributed generation, microgrids and nanogrids. In all instances there is an omnipresent need for storage as an enabling component for renewables and other forms of energy. Innovation is happening in batteries, compressed air, flywheels, hydro, hydrogen, natural gas, pumped storage and other areas. As an investor and operator, and as a policy maker, which form of energy storage do you choose? What are the pros and cons of each? What is available today? What are the costs? What are the returns? What deployment and regulatory concerns are there in implementation?
NRStor is a Canadian company that has recognized the strategic importance of energy storage and has created a team and fund to invest in emerging and proven energy storage technologies. During this seminar we will hear how NRStor views the energy storage marketplace. Ontario's Long Term Energy Plan (LTEP) has articulated the requirement to deploy 50 MW of energy storage into Ontario's grid infrastructure. Which technologies will be used? How will they interface with utilities? What will the IESO's role be in the integration? What role will local distribution companies (LDCs) play? Where can existing players and entrepreneurs get involved in this space?
