As the Australian Energy Storage Conference transitions to Adelaide 2018, it is important to explore and represent the many different applications, use cases, and technologies that make up the Energy Storage umbrella. This is not a ‘one size fits all’ technology, but rather a ‘solution to fit every situation,’ the common theme being the efficient use of energy. In that vein, the theme of AES 2018 will be ‘Storing Energy for a Sustainable Future,’ and take a wide focus on the technologies that will help us achieve this goal.
