 Analyse the trade-offs between capacity and energy

 Grasp the relationships between the electric vehicle industry and stationary storage

 Discuss the emerging synergies between renewables and energy storage, as well as the current limitations

 Explore the next generation of storage technologies on the horizon

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This course is ideal if…

You are from the investment community. Renewable power presents a fast-growing market opportunity which you are keen to investigate, but you want to gain an independent perspective on the competing options, the economic environment in which such projects operate, and the operational and revenue risks which are important to them.
