About Course

This course is designed to offer participants an in-depth understanding of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS), focusing on their technical specifications, market applications, and integration with PV. Guided by John O’Toole, a distinguished figure in the energy industry with extensive experience in operations and asset management, the course delves into the practical and strategic aspects of BESS deployment, optimization, and safety. As the energy sector continues to evolve with an increasing focus on sustainability and efficiency, this course aims to equip learners with the critical insights and knowledge needed to navigate the complexities of BESS technologies and their applications.

Course Objectives:

  • To provide a comprehensive introduction to BESS, including an overview of typical specifications and the various market applications.
  • To explore the considerations for co-locating BESS with renewable energy sources, especially PV, highlighting the synergies and benefits of integrated energy systems.
  • To present real-world examples from the UK, showcasing operations, optimization strategies, and the historical context of BESS deployment in the market.
  • To examine the safety risks associated with BESS, such as thermal runaway and the production of explosive gases, and discuss strategies to mitigate these risks.
  • To address the importance of improving safety and securing insurance for BESS projects, offering guidance on best practices and compliance with regulatory standards.
