Join Solar Austin for our monthly happy hours on September 28 and October 26 as we get the latest on energy storage from the industry’s female leaders.
As we modernize our energy supply sources with solar and renewables, it’s important to manage it and have it play smoothly with our load demand. That’s why without storage, solar can never be the promising source of energy needed for a sustainable future! In a similar way, without the power and leadership of women, mankind and our planet could simply not exist. This is why for the months of September and October, Solar Austin’s Happy Hour spotlight will be devoted to both essential elements: Female Leaders in Energy Storage.

In September we’ll begin with the big picture of utility-scale storage, then honing into residential and distributed generation for our October conversation.

Join us as we explore the really big picture – utility-scale storage – through a roundtable conversation with industry leaders. Our speakers will help explain what tools, activities, and actions are needed for our large solar facilities to increase their efficiency and resiliency with storage. Storage needs to be quick to respond to spiked grid demands, and large enough to provide backup in case of emergency. Not only that, but it also needs to be cost-effective enough to be feasible to develop, deploy, and manage over time. It’s an interesting challenge as we must remember, this is also something pioneering for our planet!

We will be joined by representatives from developers, manufacturers, and grid integrators so they can each share their story… not only of their career growth into this space but how their companies ensure a cleaner and stronger grid. It is bound to be a thrilling conversation, and one not to miss.

Join us on September 28th, 5:30-7 pm for a drink with Austin’s women in storage. Save the date for our upcoming virtual happy hour to continue the conversation on October 26.
