The American Clean Power Association (ACP) today launched a new energy storage-focused tradeshow — ACP RECHARGE. The premier event will take place in Portland, Oregon, on June 26-28, 2024.
The energy storage industry is growing at an exponential rate, with seven-times more utility-scale energy storage capacity today than at the end of 2020. Currently, the U.S. energy storage industry supports over 60,000 jobs in technology innovation, advanced manufacturing, engineering, and construction. Over the next decade, energy storage capacity will add tens of thousands of megawatts to America’s electric grid.
“The clean energy transition cannot succeed without extraordinary growth in energy storage. American energy must be clean, affordable, reliable, and secure. Energy storage is essential to achieving each of these national imperatives,” said Jason Grumet, ACP CEO. “ACP’s membership is on the cutting edge of the energy storage revolution. ACP RECHARGE will serve as the ultimate destination to share ideas, display technological advances and participate in dynamic forums that address the challenges we face ahead.”
The conference is taking place alongside the Formula E racing event in Portland — which will feature the motorsport championship league for electric cars. Registration for ACP RECHARGE will give attendees a chance to access tickets for the race taking place on June 29.
