Module I: Mastering Energy Storage

 

Overview

 

A comprehensive understanding of business opportunity, competition & risk in this key growth sector.

 

Do you understand the technology solutions, business considerations and market environments driving the booming energy storage market? This training course provides a timely, comprehensive and business-focused summary of the energy storage landscape. It covers the variety of competing storage technologies and describes the variety of problems they can address, at a wide range of deployment sizes and timescales. It also considers alternatives to storage and barriers to its market growth, making it essential for those seeking to evaluate risks as well as opportunities.

 

Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of why and where storage markets are growing, what could limit this growth and what the future trends will be. If you are thinking of investing in or developing an energy storage business, this course provides your essential grounding in the core issues.

 

Benefits of Attending

 

- Speak the language of electricity storage: terminology and concepts explained

- Language designed for non-engineers; particularly senior, commercial executives & investors

- Core knowledge building, plus examples from around the world

Who Should Attend

 

This course is ideal if:

 

1. You are from the investment community. Electricity storage presents a fast-growing market opportunity which you are keen to investigate, but you want to gain an independent perspective on the competing options, the economic environment in which storage projects operate, and the operational and revenue risks which are important to them.

 

2. You are working within the power sector in a commercial or business development role. You need a clearly explained, multi-faceted understanding of how, where and why electricity storage is disrupting existing markets and business models, so that you can understand new market opportunities and competitive risks facing your own business.

 

Including but not limited to:

 

- Policymakers and Policy Advisors

- Investors, including Commercial and Development banks, Venture Capital and Private Equity

- Power Generators (Utilities and IPPs)

- Renewable Energy Project Developers

- Transmission/Distribution System Operators

- Vendors & EPC contractors

- Large Energy Users and vehicle fleet operator

- Commercial Services Suppliers (Law, Insurance etc.)

- Oil companies and fuel distributors

- Automotive manufacturers

 

Agenda & Teaching Methodology

 

The course begins by providing a solid grounding in the current drivers for energy storage growth, including the impact of renewable energy on electricity system flexibility, along with key terminology and concepts. The landscape of energy storage solutions is then examined, with a particular focus on their competitive pros and cons, commercial status and likely evolution.

 

Key segments of the energy storage market are examined, using regularly updated real market examples to illustrate each of them and to focus the discussion on economic drivers, trends, business cases, market sustainability and growth potential.

 

Finally, we examine the key considerations and requirements in energy storage project development, including locations, planning, contracts and financing (from the investor’s perspective); plus an assessment of the evolving energy storage value chain and key players.

 

NOTE: Market examples are highlighted and discussed throughout this course to illustrate the various learning points and show that the content is based on market reality, not just theory. The agenda will combine presented materials with plenty of opportunity for Q&A, interactive discussions, and the use of quantitative models to illustrate key learning points. Current market examples, trends, news and data are utilised wherever helpful to illustrate the learning. It is important to note that this market intelligence is continuously updated and refreshed for every course.

 

Module II: Charging Electric Vehicles – Grid Impacts & Value Chain Opportunities

 

Overview

 

Are you ready for the challenges & opportunities of electric vehicle (EV) charging?

 

This is an EV course for those in the electricity infrastructure and supply business. It introduces you to key power system issues arising from the transition from fossil-fuelled to electric vehicles. What challenges arise from the need to charge grid-connected vehicles and what new business opportunities and all-new power system applications and services are created?

 

You’ll leave with a thorough grounding in the critical business issues (opportunities and risks) resulting from this disruptive market transition. You’ll be presented with a mix of current market data, case studies, contrasting opinions and scenarios.

To help you better understand the variables and uncertainties that exist in reality, we’ll illustrate and discuss quantitative calculations; with all calculators and models available to take away and use after the course.

 

The training course is designed for investors, developers and policymakers assess new market opportunities and risks during the integration of growing fleets of electric vehicles into transitioning electricity systems.

 

Benefits of Attending

 

- Clear, independent and business-focused introduction

- Language designed for non-engineers; particularly senior, commercial executives & investors

- Core knowledge building, plus examples from around the world

- Discussion of market analysis variables & value chain scenarios

- Quantification of key issues using simple numerical calculations and Excel-based tools

- Review examples and projects in charging infrastructure and charging control from around the world

- Be better able to converse with EV and grid project partners, suppliers or investors

- Identify key power system business opportunities which arise from the growth of EVs

 

We’ll answer these key questions:

 

- What are the system and local capacity barriers to EVs at scale?

- Which charging solutions (and hence market opportunities) are essential?

- How will “smart” charging be achieved and what might limit it?

- What are the key lessons from pilots and early deployments of managed charging, vehicle-to-grid and more?

- What are the different scenarios and impacts of fast charging networks?

- How might AVs and other emerging technologies alter infrastructure needs?

- Which market players are leading the way in developing EV charging infrastructure and business models?

… and many more!

 

Agenda & Teaching Methodology

 

The course begins by providing a solid grounding in current market data and trends, from both the EV market and power system perspective; highlighting where and how the two sectors do and will interact. Quantitative tools are used to calculate how key input variables lead to differing output scenarios, including changes to energy use, power demand and carbon emissions.

 

Specific impacts on the power system are described, including the challenges in supporting ubiquitous charging networks and fast charging, smart charging and the opportunities in using EVs to help deliver essential grid services. The vital role of key policy and behavioural factors are discussed: how do they, along with future developments such as vehicle autonomy, change the challenges of EV integration? We also discuss how non-battery technologies, such as hydrogen fuel-cell EVs (FCEVs), could play a role and compete with the assumption of mainstream battery vehicles.

 

Throughout the agenda, the competitive value chain landscape of EV charging will be analysed and discussed.

 

NOTE: Market examples are highlighted and discussed throughout this course to illustrate the various learning points and show that the content is based on market reality, not just theory.
