This 12-Hour, 2-Day Energy Storage Systems Course presents students with a broad understanding and focus of electrochemical battery systems and will also cover a high-level description of other storage technologies such as pumped hydroelectric, compressed air, capacitors, flywheels, and gravity energy storage systems.

This live online, instructor-led Energy Storage Systems Course covers a broad range of subjects, including: battery storage developments, evolution, applications, and business opportunities. This course will provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the energy storage revolution. Specifically, students will gain insight into how to design and procure electrochemical energy storage systems, including the full life cycle process from sourcing to recycling.

Emphasis will be on grid-scale (or utility-scale) battery energy storage as a means of addressing the intermittency of renewable energy components (e.g. solar or wind power systems) and grid stability. Smaller energy storage systems will also be discussed such as residential and C&I energy storage systems.


Importance of Energy Storage
There is a global imperative to integrate electric utility grids and renewable energy supply. Driving innovation is energy storage technologies that have the potential to revolutionize the way energy is stored.

Energy Storage Systems modernize the T&D grid by supporting power and energy in several important ways:

  • Voltage and reactive power support
  • Frequency regulation
  • Spinning and operating reserves
  • Decreasing the need for transmission upgrades
  • Shifting Energy, Arbitrage and Firm Capacity
  • Grid smoothing and Black Start and Backup
  • Incorporating renewable assets into a smart grid

 

Energy Storage Systems will decrease the costs of supplying electricity. As Energy Storage Systems prices drop dramatically, especially with the mass production of lithium batteries in electric vehicles and ESS, there will be dramatic growth in this industry.

 

This training course will highlight:

  • Challenges of Grid Stability
  • Energy Storage System Technologies
  • Energy Storage System Applications
  • Energy Storage Systems and the Utility Grid
  • Residential, Commercial Microgrids and Utility-Scale Energy Storage Systems
  • Energy Storage Projects and Life Cycle
  • Economics of Energy Storage
  • Business Models for Energy Storage
  • Policies and Future Technologies

 

By the end of this training course, the participants will be able to:

  • Identify Energy Storage System Types
  • Design and Procure Energy Storage Systems
  • Evaluate Existing and Future Energy Storage System Technologies
  • Analyze Energy Storage System Data Financial Programs
  • Understand how to Incorporate Energy Storage Systems into Existing Infrastructure
