Renewable Energy, Carbon Capture, Hydrogen & ESG > Safety and Performance Aspects of Batteries for Energy Storage Systems – Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

This 4-half-day Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) course will provide an overview of different battery technologies as well as the main challenge of ensuring good performance and a safe energy storage system.

The VILT course will discuss the technical and operational integration challenges of energy storage systems, with a focus principally on lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries. The VILT course will discuss cell chemistry and their impact on performance, cost, and safety. The potential hazards will be explained, along with installation solutions to manage this risk, ranging from cell chemistry to packaging and container integration.

This course is delivered in partnership with ENGIE Laborelec.

The VILT course will benefit professionals interested in the safety and performance aspects of Battery Energy Storage Systems, and especially those in the following roles:

  • Industrial Electronics & Metrology Technician
  • Project / Product Manager
  • Renewables Product Manager
  • Senior Project Engineer
  • Technical Advisor
  • Innovation Manager; Renewables
  • Asset Manager; RES
  • Decentralized Production Expert

Trainer 1

Your first course leader has been an expert in electrochemistry at ENGIE Laborelec since 2014. She currently manages technical projects in a number of areas, including energy storage in electrochemical systems such as batteries and battery safety. She is also responsible for collaborative projects related to energy storage interfacing with research centers and universities.

Trainer 2

Your second course leader has worked for more than 10 years in risk management, more specifically on the explosion risk. She is experienced in risk analysis, has prepared Explosion Protection Documents, and has carried out safety audits on existing installations. For several years, as part of ATEX studies, she has audited and adapted working procedures for lead-acid battery installations. Her expertise has extended to lithium-ion batteries and developing safety guidelines for energy storage systems.

To further optimise your learning experience from our courses, we also offer individualized “One to One” coaching support for 2 hours post training. We can help improve your competence in your chosen area of interest, based on your learning needs and available hours. This is a great opportunity to improve your capability and confidence in a particular area of expertise. It will be delivered over a secure video conference call by one of our senior trainers. They will work with you to create a tailor-made coaching program that will help you achieve your goals faster.
