These two-day training courses on energy storage are intended for professionals wishing to acquire a comprehensive overview of grid-connected energy storage (Arnhem course) or energy storage systems (London course) and to have the latest technology, market conditions and issues clearly explained. Energy markets in relation to energy storage, the role of storage in providing flexibility to solve intermittency issues in the grid, business models, performance indicators, warranties, safety, risks and risk mitigation are covered. 

Various locations  
This course is offered as open enrolment session at various locations; Arnhem (the Netherlands) and London (UK). General content of the courses will be the same, but country specific information can be included, so please check the different course leaflets for more detailed information on the exact course content.
