On Thursday, May 10, 2012, in San Francisco at Nixon Peabody, SVForum presented a Clean Tech Breakfast “Market Opportunities for Grid Level Energy Storage.” Khaled Shami of Nixon Peabody moderated panelists Hanns Anders of Claremont Creek Ventures, Lee Burrows of VantagePoint Venture Partners, Gordon Chirdon of NRG Energy and Daidipya Patwa of PG&E. They discussed shifting energy loads, integrating renewables, improving reliability and expanding scalability. Simple solutions that do not require exotic materials or complex technologies are more attractive to utilities. Don’t try to recreate the grid, focus on improving it incrementally.
