The sixth edition of the Energy Storage Global Conference (ESGC)  organized by EASE took place on 10 – 12 October 2023 as a hybrid event at Hotel Le Plaza in Brussels, as well as online.

Built on the foundations of five successful conferences organised since 2014, the three-day event, organised by the European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE), gathered over 380 energy
storage professionals, researchers, exhibitors, speakers, and policymakers, both onsite and online.

Participants had the chance to hear insight from over 60 speakers on how the energy storage sector is evolving and must evolve as it represents the bridge to achieve energy targets set for 2030 and 2050. The ESGC 2023 gained support from 14 sponsors – Enel XJinko SolarSLBEDFENGIEenspiredEVE, HithiumHuawei, SPP Development Ukraine, INTILIONLDESSaft and Kyoto.

Representatives from around the world came together for three days to discuss the latest developments on energy storage technologies, regulatory and policy frameworks, and the future energy storage market. The conference kicked off with a keynote speech by Anne Weidenbach from the European Commission who remarked that “Energy storage and flexibility services have moved from the background of the energy sector to the forefront”.

Following the agenda:

  • The first day was dedicated to Policy. Participants had the chance to gain in-depth information about the new Electricity Market Design, new subsidies and State Aid, and how the European Union plans to foster energy storage.
