This course allows you to explore the exciting topic of smart grid appli­ca­tions of battery storage. Through real cases and interaction with topic specialists, you will be able to identify steps and decisions that you could translate to your organi­sation to achieve a flexible business model in the emerging market of battery storage.

Energy storage is an efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable approach to tackle this issue. Adding to that, energy storage is assisting in the decarbonisation of the electricity system. Stationary storage systems, in particular, can be implemented at different levels of the electricity value chain, such as the transmission, distribution, and consumer levels.

European colla­bo­ra­tions for innovation in sustainable energy

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is an EU body created by the European Union to strengthen Europe’s ability to innovate. EIT is active in different industries, such as manufacturing, health and culture. EIT InnoEnergy is responsible for accele­rating sustainable energy innovations and one of its tools for doing this is the European Battery Alliance for battery storage (EBA), that amongst other things produces training material for battery technology and electromobility. 

EIT InnoEnergy and EBA work with training providers all across Europe to adjust the training to local needs. Göteborgs Tekniska College are proud to be the first Swedish college to provide the online training from EIT InnoEnergy and EBA to the Swedish market.
