marcus evans Electric Energy Storage Conference Set for January 12-13, 2011 in Phoenix, AZ

Leading Experts Discuss How to Overcome the Financial, Operational and Regulatory Challenges of Storage on the Grid

Phoenix, AZ, September 16, 2010 - marcus evans, a conference production company, will host the Electric Energy Storage Conference, January 12-13, 2011 in Phoenix, AZ. More than 16 industry experts will provide insights on best practices for energy storage, share results of research and design projects and explain how to integrate storage into their renewable portfolio and overall portfolio.

This conference is a meeting of senior level executives working in Electric Utility Companies and Renewable Development with responsibilities in strategic initiatives, corporate strategy, research and development, new technologies, renewable strategy and planning and engineering.

Previous conference attendees provided us with the following feedback:
"Excellent conference with many knowledgeable attendees and speakers," - Sacramento Municipal Utility District
"Great focus and educational experience. A good use of my time indeed,"- National Grid

With a one-track focus, the Electric Energy Storage Conference is a highly intensive, content-driven event that includes case studies, presentations and panel discussions over two full days. This conference targets industry leaders in energy storage roles in order to provide an intimate atmosphere for both the delegates and speakers.

Due to the government's strong push towards clean energy, the concept of storing wind and solar powers as well as excess energy produced by smart grid, has become especially appealing. Electric energy storage has the potential to provide cost-savings and additional efficiency for utility companies and wind/solar developers. However, many utility companies are still in the research and design phase because they need to look at which technologies do and do not work and also because storing can be expensive.

Hear from leading energy storage experts in order to maximize renewable initiatives while the making the business case for storage. Current speakers include Frank Novacheck, Director of Corporate Planning at Xcel Energy, Imre Gyuk, Program Manager of Energy Storage Systems at the U.S. Department of Energy, Steve Willard, Manager of the Center for Innovation and Technology at PNM Resources and John Del Monaco, Manager of Emerging Technology and Transfer at PSEG.

marcus evans invites energy storage professionals to join in this cutting-edge, peer-to-peer conference that examines best practices in the energy storage industry. In addition to two days of conference sessions, attendees will have extensive networking opportunities with their peers.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
