ESIC 2015 Summit
Energy Storage Technologies
The Energy Systems Innovation (ESI) Center at Washington State University (WSU) is strongly committed to collaborations with industry and governments. The mission of the ESI Center is to conduct research and development as well as knowledge/technology transfer on smart grid in a societal context. The center faculty team includes 10 core faculty researchers in power grids and another 20 faculty members in allied fields, such as renewables, environmental sciences, smart homes, economics, and sociology. Faculty teams work on interdisciplinary research and educational projects funded by industry and governments.

The ESI Center is launching its inaugural ESIC Summit that is intended to bring together key stakeholders from industry, government, and research institutions for a forum on timely and important subjects in smart grid and related fields. For the first ESIC Summit, to be held April 2nd 2015, we will focus on the topic of energy storage technologies.
