This week Stem was proud to participate in the Energy Storage North America conference as a California Energy Storage Association (CESA) board member, on multiple panels, and on the exhibition floor. Over 20 Stem team members came together in San Diego to meet with partners, prospects and customers, listen to panels, represent Stem on the exhibition floor and support the industry.

Stem took a prominent role at the show, participating in three sessions to discuss the state and future of the industry. Stem CEO John Carrington joined Tesla and Enernoc to discuss the reinvention of Demand Side management. Ted Ko, Stem’s Director of Policy, joined CEO’s from GELI, Greensmith and DC Systems to discuss resource aggregation strategies and software for portfolio optimization.

As summed up by Bloomberg’s Mark Chediak, who had a chance to speak with Stem CEO John Carrington during the show, the major theme of the conference is application and scale. In 2015 there will be approximately 2 gigawatts of energy storage installed globally. By 2020, that number is projected to grow to 11.3 gigawatts. That should make for a very interesting ESNA 2020.
