About this course

The training consists of two (2) separate courses, “Battery storage basics” and “Battery storage usage and opportunities” and we recommend that you take both courses.

This is an online course that can be taken at the learner's ordinary location and own pace (until December 2022). The 2 courses consist of total 23 educational hours, and will all be conducted in English.

Target group

Anyone interested in developing their knowledge of battery storage basics and battery storage technologies and how the technology could work in different parts of the energy system. A basic grounding in the field is helpful, but not essential. Basic knowledge of chemistry, math, physics, and electrical systems can be beneficial
