Part of the second course day will be in two parallel sessions, one delving deeper into business cases and markets, the other focusing more on the technical side of ES systems and their safety aspects. Both topics will be introduced in advance in the plenary sessions. Upon registration and/or during the course, you will be able to choose the session that will best match your needs and interests.
The topics covered during the course will be supported by case studies and examples. DNV GL will provide you with international examples and present our view on best practices for grid connected energy storage using our industry supported GRIDSTOR methodology.
For more information and registration please refer to the leaflet and the registration form.Your benefits
After this course you will be able to:
- Identify opportunities for grid-connected energy storage in your business.
- Understand the complexity of grid-connected energy storage projects, and be able to make decisions and interact with stakeholders during their entire life cycle.
This course is intended for project developers, insurers and lenders interested in, or working with, grid-connected energy storage. Policy makers, utilities, EPC contractors and other professionals who wish to benefit from DNV GL’s technical and commercial knowledge of energy storage are also welcome to register to this course. An elementary knowledge of electricity and/or physics is recommended.
