ees North America, an exhibition and conference dedicated to the energy storage market, on February 2nd, 2017 announced the opening of the 2017 ees AWARD nomination period.

Now in its fourth year, the ees (electrical energy storage) AWARD recognizes innovative storage solutions driving the energy transition forward.

Companies from the entire value chain of battery and energy storage technologies – ranging from components to production to business models – are encouraged to submit solutions for AWARD consideration.

All companies exhibiting at one of the worldwide ees or Intersolar events in 2017 are eligible to apply for the ees AWARD.

“The importance of energy storage in the transformation of the energy market is growing exponentially,” said Florian Wessendorf, managing director of Solar Promotion International.

“Our AWARD is a testament to the market's evolution and highlights the cutting edge of energy storage innovation happening across America and the rest of the world.”

 

IHS predicts that the energy storage market will grow to an expected 6 gigawatts in 2017 and over 40 GW by 2022

 

With the cost of batteries declining and a renewed push around energy storage mandates on the state level, the energy storage market is slated to grow significantly over the coming year. Market research firm IHS predicts that the energy storage market will “explode” from 0.34 GW installed in 2012 and 2013 to an expected 6 gigawatts in 2017 and over 40 GW by 2022.

Companies interested in applying for the ees AWARD should submit applications by March 17th, 2017 by 12 p.m. PST.
