W2: Stationary Battery Market Trends and Forecast
The global market for lithium-ion batteries continues to grow and is expected to exceed $25 billion by 2017. It continues to advance as high-power and high-capacity cells increase penetration into large-format applications and compete with established energy storage technologies such as lead-acid. In recent years, lead-acid batteries have moved beyond usage in traditional automotive applications to other markets, such as uninterruptible power supply systems (UPS) for communication base stations, medical equipment and electric vehicles. Due to market penetration, product maturity, and low cost, lead-acid remains a dominant battery chemistry. Bringing together leading market analysts, this tutorial will share the latest trends and forecasts for the global Li-ion and lead-acid battery markets, including insights from:
- Stationary market and its impact on the battery business, 2013-2025
- Lithium-ion and lead-acid market development
- Global trends and opportunities
- Stationary energy storage market forecast, 2014-2024

W3: BESS Grid Integration 101: Electric Power System Considerations, Existing Applications, and Future Opportunities for Battery Energy Storage Systems - Detailed Agenda
The use of energy storage has become increasingly important with the large-scale development of renewable resources, such as wind generators and photovoltaics. Electric power system studies identify system needs and show the potential opportunities for BESS and competing technologies. Attendees learn the electric power system issues, types of electric power system studies that must be conducted, and other considerations that must be addressed to successfully develop Battery Energy Storage Systems.
Who Should Attend: Attendees ranging from those with highly technical backgrounds to a nontechnical audience interested in BESS development would benefit from this workshop, including utility personnel, regulators, economists, marketers, and BESS developers interested in power system applications of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS).
Instructor: Michael I. Henderson, Manager, Power Systems Analysis and Training
