Preparing for Energy Storage: Trends & Practical Applications (virtual)

Course Overview

Energy storage, dominated by lithium-ion batteries, is taking on a bigger role in utilities, markets, and behind the meter. Take an in-depth look at the gamut of energy storage technologies and how the costs, practical applications, and limitations of each should factor into your long-term decisions and investments. Examine trends related to this increasingly competitive market, prospects for future growth, and regulations that could support or hinder public power in effectively deploying storage. Finally, the program will review best practices and platforms for implementing battery storage in utility portfolio planning, in supporting intermittent renewable resources, and in providing other grid services.  Click here to view the course agenda.
