Electricity is one of the major commodities in our economy, and it is one of the few commodities that never had an economical or practical method to store the product. Although it is difficult to store electricity directly, electric energy can be stored in other forms, such as potential, chemical, or kinetic energy. This course is based on Energy Storage Systems (ESS) in the new renewable energy era. As intermittent renewable energy and electric vehicles become more prevalent, there is a greater need for energy storage. In this Energy Storage Systems, Design & Maintenance training course, we will have the main focus on covering electrochemical battery systems (batteries) and will also cover pumped hydroelectric, compressed air, fuel cells, flow batteries, flywheels, and gravity ESS. We will cover all the aspects of modernizing the grid from an energy storage point of view, from the individual household to the large utility-scale infrastructure.

This training course will highlight:

  • Energy Storage System Technologies
  • Energy Storage System Applications
  • Energy Storage Systems and the Utility Grid
  • Residential and Commercial Energy Storage Systems
  • Utility-Scale Energy Storage Systems


By the end of this Energy Storage Systems, Design & Maintenance training course, the participants will be able to:

  • Identify Energy Storage System Types
  • Design Energy Storage Systems
  • Evaluate Existing and Future Energy Storage System Technologies
  • Analyze Energy Storage System Data Financial Programs
  • Understand how to Incorporate Energy Storage Systems into Existing Infrastructure
  • Know the various types of energy storage systems (ESS)
  • Understand the relative cost differences of ESS;
  • Know the benefits of ESS for the generation
  • Know how ESS can benefit T&D infrastructure
  • Know how ESS creates value for the end user;
  • Understand the advantages of lead-acid batteries;
  • Know the concerns with using Ni-Cads in energy storage;
  • Know the benefits of Li-ion batteries for ESS
  • Understand the benefits of sodium-sulfur batteries
  • Know how compressed air can be used for energy storage
  • Understand how pumped storage hydro works; and
  • See the potential benefit of PHEV for energy storage.


This training course is suitable for a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Electrical Engineers
  • Electrical Supervisors
  • Maintenance Technicians
  • Managers in charge of Installations
  • Project Engineers
  • Professionals involved in the design, analysis, installation, and maintenance Solar PV Systems.


This training course is designed based on the adult learning concept and will combine presentations with instructor-guided interactive discussions between participants relating to their interests. Practical exercises, video material and case studies aiming at stimulating these discussions and providing maximum benefit to the participants will support the formal presentation sessions. Above all, the course leader will make extensive use of case examples and case studies of issues in which he has been personally involved

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.
