SCI's Energy Group
This event is no longer available for registration.
Energy storage promises to become a disruptive technology, enabling flexibilities, freedoms and security not previously enjoyed in our electricity supply. It also provides the potential to optimise the electricity supply chain in the same way as our undersea and underground buffers of natural gas have allowed in our gas networks.
What will the impact be of increased energy storage, and how can it be managed?
Join the SCI Energy Group on 2 June when Dr Jill Cainey, Director of the UK's Electricity Storage Network will introduce us to the rapidly developing area of energy storage. A question and answer session with an expert panel (Adriana Luguna-Estopier, UK Power Networks; Dr Mark Powell, Capgemini; Simon Daniel, Moixa Technology) will follow Dr Cainey's talk - come along and join the discussion.

The way forward?
SCI is uniquely positioned to provide an independent, multidisciplinary science-based perspective on the energy trilemma - sustainability, affordability and security of supply - and to bring together critical inputs and thinking from industry, academia and the public sector.

Dr Jill Cainey is the Director of the UK's Electricity Storage Network, the UK trade body that represents the electricity storage industry in the UK and Europe, on a variety of Government, regulatory and industry bodies. It provides a coherent and influential voice to promote electricity storage at the national and local level.
Jill is a research fellow with CSIRO Ocean and Atmosphere, with over 20 years of experience internationally in atmospheric science and climate change, and provides policy and regulatory advice and support on the integration of electricity storage to create an efficient and sustainable GB electricity system that addresses the impacts of climate change.
Adriana is Low Carbon Technologies and External Engagement Manager at UK Power Networks. She oversees innovation projects on electrification of transport and heat, small scale generation and storage. She is currently in charge of Smarter Network Storage, a 6MW/10MWh grid-scale battery. She joined UK Power Networks in 2012 as Low Carbon Project Manager of Flexible Plug and Play, a project addressing the challenge of connecting more renewable distributed generation, before moving onto become the Commercial Strategy Lead for Low Carbon London, a four year innovation project that investigated the impact of a wide range of low carbon technologies on London's electricity distribution network.
Prior to joining UK Power Networks Adriana worked at Acciona Energy in change of developing 300 MW of wind energy in Mexico. She also worked in the Ministry of Energy in Mexico and helped to design the country's first Renewable Energy Programme. Qualifications include a Master of Public Administration in Environmental Science and a Policy degree from Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs, as well as a BSc in Industrial Engineering from Insituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México.
Dr Powell has worked in the power and gas sector for over 25 years specialising in strategy - both in areas of power generation and retail. As an economist he has taken a particular interest in the economics of power and has published a number of reports, papers and articles looking at the economics of energy policy.
