Organisers say that more than 60 companies in the Australian and global energy storage industry will be at AES 2018 to explore the innovative energy storage technologies currently in the market and look at what is next for the sector.
The event will be headlined by major energy companies including Tesla, Toshiba, GE, ABB and Victron Energy.
"Australia's energy industry is in the middle of a huge transformation, as government and industry seek solutions to issues surrounding reliability, affordability, and a move to more renewable sources.
"Energy storage technologies have a critical role to play in these rapid changes, making it essential for industry to explore the potential of these technologies to determine which ones will be the best fit for certain areas and applications," the organisers said.
Some of the technologies on show will include lithium batteries, flow batteries, hydrogen, silicon thermal storage, compressed air storage, flywheel energy, inverters, lead acid, pumped hydro, system providers and energy management.
Some of the international exhibitors at AES 2018 exhibition will include Max Bögl and Belectric (Germany), Ingeteam (Spain), Nel Hydrogen (Switzerland), Hydrostor (Canada), ESS Inc, NEC and Amber Kinetics (US).
This year will include a German Pavilion as well as an electric vehicle and charging zone, featuring Delta-Mitsubishi, Hyundai, Bestech and Aurrigo, which will showcase self-driving pods.
"If you work for an energy system provider or manufacturer; a utility; in mining or a remote community; in any level of government, for an installer, contractor, designer or specifier; or anywhere else in the energy sector, this event is your chance to stay ahead of new technologies, processes, and improvements across energy storage," the organisers said.
