This energy storage course is intended for those in business, commercial and strategically focused roles within the power sector.

You will leave with a clearly explained and independent perspective on how energy storage is transforming the power landscape, with a focus on batteries (which dominate current capacity growth). You want to understand where in the power system these changes are most significant and rapid, and how they create knock-on impacts elsewhere. You want to evaluate new opportunities and risks for your business, learning from illustrations and practices taken from a global perspective.

While this course focuses on battery storage, an optional two-session add-on considers the role of other and emerging solutions for applications where battery limitations may be reached.





All sessions will begin at 14:00 CET. Each session will last 3 hours, including dedicated Q&A time with the trainer and short breaks throughout. All sessions will begin at 14:00 CET. You will receive the recordings from each session so you can re-watch them at any time. Once you've booked your place, you will be emailed all the login information required.

Session 1:  Battery storage (technologies & deployment issues)


A clear explainer, for business people, of battery technologies and the considerations in deploying battery storage projects.

What are the different battery types available, how do they compare and what makes up a full storage system? Which project factors will drive different technology choices? What are some of the practicalities of energy storage project delivery, including sizing, safety, cost and longevity?


A business person’s guide to battery technology: what you need to know

  • The current status and key features of battery technologies (Li-ion, flow & other)
  • Battery performance and lifetime considerations, including degradation
  • Warranties and guarantees (and their limits)
  • Other system components (balance of plant and controls)
  • Technology selection criteria: what are the key metrics to consider?


Deployment considerations for battery storage projects

  • Trends in cost and a breakdown of project cost components
  • Essential project development and planning considerations (safety, location, grid connectivity and more)
  • Site selection factors, including renewable power integration (hybrid projects)
  • The pros and cons of adaptable project planning (and the contractual limitations)
  • How to plan for battery degradation
