Welcome to the Introduction to Energy Storage Systems and Renewables Energy Integration course.

Course Overview

Energy storage systems are technologies that capture and store excess energy produced during periods of low demand or high renewable energy generation and release it when demand is high or generation is low. These systems play a crucial role in balancing the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources and improving the overall stability and reliability of the electrical grid.

Renewable energy integration refers to the process of incorporating renewable energy sources into existing energy systems and grids to meet the growing demand for clean and sustainable energy. It involves various aspects, including the development and installation of renewable energy generation facilities, the establishment of efficient transmission and distribution infrastructure, and the implementation of advanced technologies and strategies to optimize the use of renewable energy.

Course Objective

This course will help you understand 

  • Energy in India: emerging scenario
  • Roles of energy storage in renewable energy integration
  • energy storage and renewable energy integration
  • Projects on energy storage
  • Opportunities available for innovation and research to faculty and students

Duration: ~ 75 min

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
