Session Brief
The world is witnessing a major shift towards renewable energy and electric mobility. Energy storage is seen as a key enabler for this transition. Availability of energy storage systems that are cheap, efficient, reliable, flexible and capable of rapid power absorption and delivery would be essential for higher penetration of renewables and electric vehicles. 

Numerous technology options exist today for energy storage, each with its own set of opportunities and challenges. Recent years have seen rapid improvement in performance coupled with a steep fall in prices. Energy storage is set to be a ubiquitous element of the next generation energy systems.

In this context, the session would deliberate on technology choices, regulatory needs, indigenous manufacturing, and other related issues of energy storage.

Discussion Points
•    What is the importance of storage in the future energy landscape?
•    How could India kick start mass-manufacture of energy storage systems and devices?
•    What are some key areas of focus in energy storage for our research fraternity?
•    What kind of policy support would be required to initiate adoption of storage on a large scale?
