The objective is to enable participants to understand the concepts and technologies used for electric Energy Storage (ES). The course highlights Lithium Ion (Li-ion) batteries as the dominant technology in new projects and addresses the complex safety, performance and life issues of this technology. We will discuss the technical and financial parameters that drive the project designs of grid-connected and off-grid ES. Participants will become familiar with the major factors that determine Energy Storage selection and sizing, and receive various case studies to use for benchmarking. The module aims to provide professionals with sufficient understanding to establish the key requirements and financial benefits of Energy Storage technology and applications in various grid-connected and off-grid systems.
