2. Conduct or sponsor relevenat technical sessions and webinars, participate in approriate technical conferences, as well as publish technical articles, papers and reports that enlighten the industry on related energy storage and stationary battery matters.
3. Seek experience SME's from all areas of energy storage and stationary battery experience to help establish the ESSB Committee as a responsible and leading voice in energy storage and stationary batteries.
4. Liaise with other technical committees, societies and groups concerned with various aspects of energy storage and battery systems in order to present as coordinated message as possible.
Note: See the ESSB Policies and Procedures or Operating Procedures manuals for a full and official description of the ESSB Scope.
