Post-Event Message from the NESS Leadership Team:
Thank you to those who joined us at the Summit March 8-9, 2022 to accelerate our impact by catalyzing new partnerships and solutions. We had 2,229 registrants (from 49 states and 57 countries) and 1,520 in attendance, with hundreds more viewing the content after the event, including >850 from industry, >700 from government and the national labs, and >400 from academia. We also welcomed 70 each from the finance/VC sector, utilities, and NGOs.
Thank you to our 100+ diverse and distinguished speakers who helped us to lay out not only the challenges but also the solutions that are within our reach.
This is an “all hands on deck” moment in the climate crisis – we must tap into the rich diversity of talent and experience from across the energy storage ecosystem in order to learn from one another and build collaborations that lead to the innovations that this national challenge requires. We are honored to have played a role in doing just that with the National Energy Storage Summit.
Now let’s get to work: Discover, Develop, and Deploy!
Exponential energy storage deployment is both expected and needed in the coming decades, enabling our nation’s just transition to a clean, affordable, and resilient energy future. This VIRTUAL public summit will convene and connect national and regional thought leaders across industry, government, communities, and the research enterprise to catalyze solutions and partnerships around specific challenges to America’s energy storage future.
America’s Battery Production Revolution:
From Resource to Recharge
America is falling behind on the battery production curve, with implications to both national and economic security.
Day 1 focused on leveraging policy, science, and technical innovations across materials, supply chains, and production processes to revolutionize a domestic battery ecosystem and realize America’s full potential, including creating equitable clean-energy jobs in the U.S.
Driving Accelerated Energy Storage Discovery-to-Deployment for Decarbonization
The clock is ticking on the global clean energy transition.
Day 2 – in partnership with New Energy Nexus, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory – focused on expanding CalCharge’s annual Bay Area Battery Summit ecosystem to a national stage, with a focus on bridging the diverse stakeholders across science to systems to accelerate equitable national energy storage deployment in all relevant sectors: the evolving grid, energy-intense industry, resilience, transportation, and buildings. The focus was broadened beyond batteries to energy storage at large.
