June 6, 2017 - Columbia, S.C. -  The South Carolina Clean Energy Business Alliance (SCCEBA) is hosting an Energy Storage Business Roundtable on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at Flextronics International in West Columbia.

SCCEBA is hosting the Roundtable in partnership with Flextronics International, ABB, Nelson Mullins, and Shealy Electrical Wholesalers/Border States.  Attendees will learn how energy storage is becoming an increasingly important element in electricity and energy systems to improve cost savings, shave peak demand, increase use of renewable power and contribute to optimal use of grid assets.

"I'm convinced that Energy Storage is the missing piece we've needed to advance the Smart Grid,” said Jim Woods, Product Manager, Clean Energy Products-Southeast Region, Shealy-Border States Electric.  “We'll look back on this time as the Era the Electric Grid transformed."

The latest energy storage technologies, their applications, and market trends will be discussed by energy storage experts in commercial, industrial and solar applications from Energy Intelligence Partners, Flex of Columbia, ABB, Alevo, Duke Energy, SCANA, and Southern Current.

“Alevo is excited to participate in the SCCEBA Business Roundtable on energy storage,” said Benjamin Lowe, Director of Policy and Market Development, Alevo USA, Inc.  “We look forward to discussing how energy storage technology promises to make electric grids more resilient, flexible and cost-effective.”

The event is sold out and more than 70 clean energy industry leaders will be in attendance.  Those individuals will also have an opportunity to tour of the Flex Facility immediately following the Roundtable.

“Our Roundtable discussions have become very popular,” said Patricia Peirce, Director of SCCEBA.  “There was a lot of interest in this topic, Energy Storage, and we sold out of spots very quickly.  I encourage those interested in attending our events to check out website regularly for event updates and registration.”
