Welcome to the Comparision of Different Energy Storage Technologies Course.

Course Overview

Engineers and policymakers are increasingly focusing on energy storage due to the rising attention to the environmental consequences of fossil fuels and the efficiency and durability of energy grids worldwide. Energy storage can help resolve the intermittent nature of wind power and solar; in some instances, it can also respond quickly to significant demand changes, make the grid react quickly, and minimize the need to install backup power plants. An energy storage facility’s efficiency is determined by how rapidly it can respond to demand changes, its total capacity to store energy, the rate of energy lost in the storage process, and how easily it can be recharged.

Therefore, it is crucial to critically analyze the fundamental characteristics of energy storage systems to create benchmarks for selecting the best technology. This energy storage system is defined by its technical specifications. This course will guide you with different energy storage technologies

About the Student Series:

The energy and transportation ecosystems are undergoing a dynamic transition globally with a paradigm shift from lead-acid to lithium-ion batteries. With the increased demand for electric vehicles and stationary energy, energy storage systems are becoming a necessity for these ecosystems.

As we dive into advanced energy storage research and scale up production and usage of energy storage systems, it becomes critical to build a strong foundation for the future workforce. On this background, starting August 2022, IESA Academy is organizing a year-long student series on energy storage systems to

  • Increase awareness of energy storage systems
  • Build a foundation for energy storage systems taskforce
  • Simplify energy storage concepts for a non-technical audience
  • Open the spectrum of emerging technologies to students and non-technical professionals
