The essential update on how good risk management can maximise the value and opportunities with the deployment Electrical Energy Storage (EES) technologies.

Timely & Relevant: 2017 could be the tipping point when Electrical Energy Storage (EES) goes mainstream. Understand how effective risk management can maximise the value and opportunities with the deployment Electrical Energy Storage (EES) technologies. 

Minimise Legal Risks: Increasing fines, more robust enforcement and raised corporate responsibility expectations have increased the legal exposure of companies. Understand how these risks (company and personal) can be minimised.

Due diligence: Investors and developers will increasingly require evidence that the chosen EES technology is “safe”. Hear from experts on how to apply a risk based approach to manage EES due diligence.

Expert opinion: Hear from leading experts with wide ranging experience in energy storage project development and due diligence. Representative from DNV GL, Everoze, RES, HSE/L, BSI & Forge Risk will be speaking.

Networking: Take advantage of access to the speakers but also fellow attendees to understand how you can add value to your organisation and your own professional development.

Renewables: Understand how the risks associated with wind and solar projects can be effectively addressed as part of new build and retrofit storage applications.
