Conference focus is on “flexible sector coupling”


One of the main topics of the conferences is the flexible sector coupling. Himanshu Sudan, founder and president of the Canadian company eCamion, will report on a project of the company that will equip the Trans-Canada Highway with fast-loading columns. His lecture is part of Session 4 of the Energy Storage Europe Conference on the topic of “Sector Coupling – Chemicals & Mobility”. In addition to battery-powered sector coupling, this session also covers the production of chemicals for energy storage including power-to-fuel.


Teun Bokhoven from the International Energy Agency chairs Session 5 “Sector Coupling – Power-to-Heat”. In this session, not only innovative technologies such as Carnot batteries will be discussed, but also tried-and-tested approaches such as power-to-heat concepts from Denmark.
