Expansion. Inclusion. Integration. 


The energy storage industry is growing: expanding in size and scope, including new end uses and users, and integrating more technologies into the grid than ever before. The industry is challenging the status quo every day.

Our first keynote speaker has been challenging the status quo for decades. Dr. Tony Byers is transforming diversity and inclusion practices from "the right thing to do" to the business imperative of our time. Inclusion is a powerful business advantage that the energy storage industry is poised to claim, and Dr. Byers will kick off the event with the message that expansion, inclusion, and integration will create a multiplier effect and positively impact every aspect of our industry.

The second keynote speaker, Steve Fludder, is an industry veteran with more than 30 years of leadership in the power, energy, and infrastructure markets, in North America and abroad. Now CEO at #ESACon19's Conference Host, NEC Energy Solutions, Mr. Fludder will give the industry perspective on what it means to be working toward expansion, inclusion, and integration while modernizing the grid and providing invaluable services.


Our third keynote speaker is coming soon. Stay tuned!
