This course will give you a rock-solid overview and understanding of the full battery value chain, production processes, and end-of-life scenarios. Also an understanding of how a Li-ion battery is produced following the different steps in the battery value chain.
You will look at both large-scale battery production and the laboratory manufacturing process and understand the steps required to turn materials into battery cells. Evaluate whether we can use the full potential of batteries while in use and, at the same time, regain value from end-of-life batteries, learners will learn about state-of-the-art scenarios related to batteries end-of-life in particular re-use and recycling.

Course content and evaluation
Battery storage value chain is a fully online course that consists of four self-paced online modules and optionally a follow-up by a topic specialist. The topics for the modules are:
- Battery raw materials
- Production and manufacturing of batteries
- From materials to battery cells
- Batteries end-of-life: reuse and recycling
The learners will have the possibility to share their opinion and thoughts on relevant topics via the discussion elements throughout the course. To succeed in the Battery course and receive a Certificate of Accomplishment, you will need a minimum score of 75 points in the general assessment.
More information about the course structure and FAQ.
This course empowers learners to:
- Understand the battery industry value chain
- Identify the main challenges of raw materials extraction, supply, and options for end-of-life batteries
- Design a process flow for the production of a Li-ion battery cell
- Describe each step of production of a Li-ion battery cell and discuss its function and challenges
- Appraise the main challenges faced by large-scale production of Li-ion batteries concerning supply chain and manufacturing process
- Discuss the importance of recycling for a circular battery value and pinpoint the relevant steps
This course is beneficial for anyone interested in understanding potential business models attached to battery storage and its applications as well as how to prepare for developing a relevant business model.
In order to be able to follow and benefit from this course you should have a basic general background knowledge on chemistry and the energy system.
Create your own blended learning path
Online training is an efficient way to secure new knowledge. But sometimes you need to go deeper and apply theory in practice order to really understand. That is why we recommend you to combine your online learning with laboratory work and practical training led by our experienced trainers at our training centre in Torslanda.
The online courses from EIT InnoEnergy and EBA can be combined with one another as well as with the regular course portfolio at Göteborgs Tekniska College and thus result in a longer learning path. Based on your needs, we will together construct a tailormade blended learning path with both online and classroom training, that will make for great results in your organisation.
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.
