Energy Storage Conference heads to Adelaide


Tuesday, 07 November, 2017

The Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition (AES 2018) is heading to Adelaide in 2018.

To be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre from 23–24 May 2018, AES 2018 will co-locate with the third Renewable Cities Australia Forum.

Sam Staples, AES sales manager and conference program manager, said Adelaide and South Australia have positioned themselves as national leaders in the push to modernise energy systems through the uptake of clean and efficient technologies.

Staples said the move to Australia’s clean-energy hotspot will provide unique opportunities for exhibitors and visitors with additional exhibition zones, expanded workshop programs and energy-storage site tours, ensuring visitors and exhibitors can capitalise on the opportunities Adelaide offers in this field. The event will feature expanded Renewable Cities, Electric Vehicle and Charging, and Future-Tech Zones.

The South Australian Government supports this opportunity to showcase its clean energy achievements to delegates both in Australia and abroad attending the conference. Energy Minister Tom Koutsantonis said, “Our recently announced Tesla grid-scale battery at Jamestown and solar thermal facility near Port Augusta has firmly entrenched South Australia as a hotbed for advancement in storing renewable energy. On a residential and commercial scale, South Australian businesses are also leading the way in providing storage and demand management solutions. Renewable energy with storage is the future because it is reliable, clean and more affordable than conventional generation.”

The AES 2018 conference program, including site tours, will be announced early next year, with commercial and utility energy storage companies around Adelaide running site tours. As well as allowing conference delegates an in-depth look at technology and installations, the redeveloped AES 2018 will see an expanded social program and new-look exhibition floor.

Staples said 2018 will see several new benefits and programs to ensure exhibitors can fully gain from participating, including 15 minutes to present products and services in the heart of the exhibition floor and an all-access conference pass.

The sectors covered include: agriculture, construction, corporate asset management, design and economic consultants, education and government, facility and building management, finance, heating and cooling, housing and remote communities, manufacturing, mining, power management, recycling, energy storage and renewable energy system providers, R&D, telecommunications, transport and utilities.
