Energy is of immense societal importance, pervading all areas life, and high performance energy storage systems will be essential in developing a sustainable future economy. As such, energy storage systems represent a key area of scientific and engineering endeavour now and in the future. There is great potential for next generation technologies to change the way we live and disrupt existing industries, generating new start-up companies and economic opportunities for the UK and elsewhere.
Realising the potential for energy storage systems across all aspects of our modern economy and society requires transformational science and engineering closely allied with industry and government. This conference will look at the fundamental advances necessary to “move the dial” in performance and cost, how breakthroughs are pulled through innovation into commercialisation, and the policy issues related to advancing energy storage for automotive and grids.
Attending this event
This conference aims to bring together national and international leaders in energy storage systems and is intended for participants from across academia, industry and government.

About the conference series
The conference is part of the Society's Transforming our future conference series, launched to address the major scientific and technical challenges of the next decade and beyond. Each conference will focus on one topic and will seek to cover key issues, including:
- The current state of the key industry sectors involved
- The position of the UK and how it can benefit from the technology
- The future direction of research
- The challenges faced in turning research into commercial success
- The skills base needed to deliver major economic scientific advances
- The wider social and economic impacts
The conferences are a key component of the Society’s five-year Science, Industry and Translation initiative which demonstrates our commitment to reintegrate science and industry at the Society and to promote science and its value by connecting academia, industry and government.
