Held annually since 2010, the symposium features presentations from national and state-level experts, high-profile solution providers, on-site energy storage customers and utility interests. In the midst of a changing storage landscape, Silicon Valley has a unique cluster of energy storage companies, and numerous innovative deployments of storage for demand-side electricity management. According to the Cleantech Group (, Energy Storage has received over $830 million in venture capital investments over the last decade, a third of which was invested in Silicon Valley companies. At this symposium, you will hear from several local companies and energy customers about the technologies, business models, benefits, opportunities, incentives and use cases for behind-the-meter storage applications. This symposium brings together key participants from the public, private sectors and academic and research communities-to engage in a discussion about energy storage and how the industry will move forward in Silicon Valley.
