Leading the Charge conference

A clean energy revolution is underway around much of the world, driven by rapid technological advancements and the declining cost of renewable energy. However, the sun isn't always shining and the wind isn't always blowing. Therefore, storing excess power and distributing it in a way that ensures no interruption in service is seen as the key to realizing the full potential of renewables.
Building on the success of sold-out events in PDF file2016 and PDF file2017, the third annual Leading the Charge conference returns to the historic Mattamy Athletic Centre (formerly known as Maple Leaf Gardens). The conference will once again fuse academic and technical expertise with practical industry experience, bringing together high-level talent and decision-makers from across Canada and the United States to explore all aspects of energy storage — including the various battery technologies; how best to integrate them into the electricity grid; implications of increased energy storage adoption to utilities, manufacturers and consumers; and opportunities for commercialization.
Leading the Charge will provide a platform for stakeholders — including technology providers, local distribution companies, government and academia — to share their perspectives on the challenges and opportunities of energy storage.
Additional speakers and panelists to be announced shortly.
