Virtual #ESACon21 will provide the same high-caliber programming as it has with its in-person events. There will be new features to enhance networking and business development opportunities for attendees as well. The virtual conference takes place across two days, April 21-22, 2021. Attendees can attend keynote, featured panels, breakout sessions, and participate in topical networking discussions from the comfort of their home or office.

The Phoenix #ESACon21 will take place December 1-3, 2021 in Phoenix, AZ and will include both educational content and the expo, the centerpiece of this event.  The content to be available on both the mainstage and in breakout session will only be available to attendees.

#ESACon21 is the premiere event for those involved in the energy storage industry to learn about market trends and gain critical knowledge to drive their business or career in energy storage. This is a must attend event for professionals across the industry, including grid operators, government officials, storage developers and innovators, investors, and corporate buyers.

There is no cost to attend.  To provide for and encourage the engagement of the entire energy storage ecosystem, virtual #ESACon21 will be available at not cost for all who are interested.  Take advantage of this opportunity and encourage your colleagues to attend.

Registration fees will be announced in the last spring.  ESA is working to make this a valuable and cost-effective event for attendees.

The virtual #ESACon21is much more than a simple webinar. It provides for the ability for networking, real-time Q&A with speakers/panels, actively-moderated sessions, and discussion forums.

There will be various opportunities for networking and discussions within the virtual platform, including the ability to request private one-on-one meetings and chats, private group meetings, moderated networking sessions, and more.

#ESACon21 features speakers from across the energy storage ecosystem, on topics ranging from long duration storage, supply chain and trade issues, new markets, distributed energy resources, policy and more. From discussions of state regulatory and legislative policy to federal infrastructure, all aspects of policy and advocacy are examined for the impact on energy storage in the year ahead.
