This one-day course will introduce participants to concepts related to energy storage. We will discuss the growing need for energy storage, both grid-scale and behind the meter. We will examine the various storage technologies, their key attributes, and where they fit into today’s energy marketplace. We will also examine regulatory issues, emerging business models, and a number of the companies active in the space. Finally, we will look at some of the growth and supply chain issues and examine analogs from the storage to the solar industry.
