About the content

Explore battery storage technology - how and why it works, and how it could revolutionise the European energy landscape.

Imbalances in power supply, combined with rising energy demands pose a growing risk. But the emerging field of ‘battery storage’ could be the solution.

On this course, you’ll discover promising battery storage technologies; exploring their workings, strengths, weaknesses, and possible place in Europe’s future. You’ll look into a range of uses; not only in the power sector - but in transportation, industry, the home and more.

You’ll leave the course with a better understanding of battery storage technology, the many opportunities it presents, and what’s slowing its adoption today.
