Energy Storage – Summit for the Storage of Renewable Energies takes place on 13 and 14 March 2012 in Düsseldorf

Federal Environment Minister Dr. Norbert Röttgen will be giving a speech about the transformation of the energy system on 13th March 2012 at the Energy Storage – Summit for the Storage of Renewable Energies conference in Düsseldorf. Therein he will address the central role energy storage systems will play in the future at the phase out of nuclear power and the expansion of renewable energy. The two-day Energy Storage event will give a practical overview of innovations together with examples of mature, market-ready applications.

Around 200 international experts are expected from business, research and politics. The issues around the most important storage techniques will be discussed from the standpoint of their practical feasibility. These include batteries, thermal storage, hydrogen- and methane-based storage from renewable energies (Power2Gas) and large pumped-storage power plants.
