ChargeExpo 2024: Exploring the Role of Energy Storage in Modernizing the Power Grid


Several years on, not many will have forgotten the Texas Freeze. The failure of the power grid during the winter of 2021 had devastating effects, with hundreds dead and millions without power, food, and clean water. While the Texas Freeze was caused by the failure of the state’s power grid, the national power grid has also been falling prey to blackouts and shut-offs during cold snaps. Amid the increasing demand for alternative energy sources and the challenges faced by the grid, the conversation around energy storage has never been more pertinent.

So, how is energy storage shaping the future of the grid and contributing to the sustainability of our energy systems? Daniel Litwin, the Voice of B2B at MarketScale, delved into this issue with Bobby Ruiz at ChargeExpo 2024. As the official media partner of the event, MarketScale had the privilege of engaging in an insightful conversation with Ruiz, who serves as an associate at The Hiller Companies.

Main Points of Conversation:

  • The role of The Hiller Companies in providing hardware, software, and consulting services for energy storage systems.
  • A growing need for solutions across the United States, with a focus on states like California and Texas.
  • The transition towards energy storage solutions and its dynamic impact on the grid and energy providers.

Bobby Ruiz is an energy storage specialist and retired fire chief. With expertise in fire protection equipment and energy storage systems, Bobby brings a unique perspective to the discussion on grid modernization and sustainability.
