Module I: Mastering Energy Storage

AGENDA & TEACHING METHODOLOGY

The course begins by providing a solid grounding in the current drivers for energy storage growth, including the impact of renewable energy on electricity system flexibility, along with key terminology and concepts. The landscape of energy storage solutions is then examined, with a particular focus on their competitive pros and cons, commercial status and likely evolution.

Key segments of the energy storage market are examined, using regularly updated real market examples to illustrate each of them and to focus the discussion on economic drivers, trends, business cases, market sustainability and growth potential. Finally we examine the key consideratitions and requirements in energy storage project development, including locations, planning, contracts and financing (from the investor’s perspectitie); plus an assessment of the evolving energy storage value chain and key players.

NOTE: Market examples are highlighted and discussed throughout this course to illustrate the various learning points and show that the content is based on market reality, not just theory.

The agenda will combine presented materials with plenty of opportunity for Q&A, interactitie discussions, and the use of quantitative models to illustrate key learning points. Current market examples, trends, news and data are utilised wherever helpful to illustrate the learning. It is important to note that this market intelligence is continuously updated and refreshed for every course.

Module II: Charging Electric Vehicles (EVs) - Grid Impacts & Value Chain Opportunities

AGENDA & TEACHING METHODOLOGY

The course begins by providing a solid grounding in current market data and trends, from both the EV market and power system perspective; highlighting where and how the two sectors do and will interact. Quantitative tools are used to calculate how key input variables lead to differing output scenarios, including changes to energy use, power demand and carbon emissions.

Specific impacts on the power system are described, including the challenges in supporting ubiquitous charging networks and fast charging, smart charging and the opportunities in using EVs to help deliver essential grid services. The vital role of key policy and behavioural factors are discussed: how do they, along with future developments such as vehicle autonomy, change the challenges of EV integration? We also discuss how non-battery technologies, such as hydrogen fuel-cell EVs (FCEVs), could play a role and compete with the assumption of mainstream battery vehicles.

Throughout the agenda, the competitive value chain landscape of EV charging will be analysed and discussed.
