There is a global imperative to integrate the electricity grid and renewable energy generation and supply. Driving innovation in this space is battery storage which has the potential to revolutionise the way we store energy, and to reshape the playing field for everyone. To keep ahead of change and ensure you and your organisation stay in front of emerging opportunities, you need to build an industry-standard knowledge and understanding of the battery value chain – from raw materials to recycling.

This online course is your fast-track to insider understanding of battery storage – current developments, future evolution, applications and opportunities. Delivered by InnoEnergy, a pan-European authority on renewable energy and leading member of the European Battery Alliance, this course gives you a comprehensive understanding of the battery storage revolution. You are empowered with:

  • Big-picture perspective of the battery storage value chain from raw materials to second life and recycling
  • Insight into current and future innovations in battery storage
  • An understanding of different battery storage solutions – potential, applications and benefits
  • An enhanced professional profile and expertise in business models and market evolution in battery storage
  • Inside-track understanding of new opportunities, market dynamics and future challenges
  • A professional certificate upon successful completion of the course.
