Energy Storage Systems (ESS) are gaining importance almost every month through global applications, whether it is for grid stabilization, off grid systems, renewable energy cooperation or the hybridization of internal combustion engines. The diversity of ESS use cases asks for profound knowledge and detailed design which is usually about ten times as complex as any design for e.g renewable energy systems.
This webinar will discuss on components of an ESS, differences in designs, applications of ESS around the world with real live examples. This should provide the fundamentals of an ESS based on LiIon batteries which leads to viable business opportunities.
SCEM Participants will be awarded with 1.5 PDU Points.
