Clarion, US Energy Storage Association partnership to drive grid modernization

Clarion North America Energy has announced a strategic partnership with the US Energy Storage Association (ESA), the national trade association for companies that develop and deploy energy storage technologies that are key to modernizing the grid.

The partnership involves a well-defined content program at multiple US events including, DISTRIBUTECH International and POWERGEN International.

The new partnership will bring forward thought-leadership and peer-to-peer discussion platforms around markets, policy and technology, furthering the ESA’s focus to advance the adoption of competitive and reliable energy storage systems in the United States.

By partnering with ESA, Clarion Energy North America events will increase and enhance coverage of energy storage and offer ESA members exposure to a broad range of energy education with an audience that is highly interested in energy storage.

ESA member companies will present and speak at Clarion’s event content platforms, including Full Conference Summit and Expo Hall Knowledge Hub content, pre-conference workshops and symposiums.

Collaborating with ESA will give event attendees the chance to participate in conversations with leaders who are advancing the technology and applications of energy storage.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with ESA, the leading voice of the energy storage industry,” said MaryBeth DeWitt, Clarion’s senior vice president of North America Energy.

“This partnership is a perfect alignment with many of our attendees and exhibitors who are interested in learning more about energy storage. Many are already implementing the technology at power plants and on the grid. At the same time, we feel ESA’s members will benefit greatly from being involved with our events that have a deep history in the US electric power industry.”

“I am excited about the opportunities ahead with the Clarion North America Energy events, as the leader in the US market connecting utilities, power producers, manufacturers and end-users in energy,” ESA CEO Kelly Speakes-Backman said.

“Through our combined efforts, we can educate and inform even more of the industry on markets, policy and technology changes that will affect the electric power industry.”

The first event of 2020 to include ESA content will be POWERGEN International December 8-10, 2020 in Orlando, FL, followed by DISTRIBUTECH International February 9-11, 2021 in San Diego, CA.
