With the grid-connected energy storage market maturing and commercial projects starting up, companies in different sectors are increasingly interested in the potential of energy storage for their business. But insight into technical, market and financial aspects is essential to realizing that potential.
As part of our educational offering that also includes workshops and interactive sessions, DNV GL offers a two-day training that helps you increase your overall understanding of grid-connected energy storage systems.
These two-day training courses on energy storage essentials are intended for professionals wishing to acquire a comprehensive overview of grid-connected energy storage and energy storage systems, and to have the latest technology, market conditions and issues clearly explained. Energy markets in relation to energy storage, the role of storage in providing flexibility to solve intermittency issues in the grid, business models, performance indicators, warranties, safety, risks and risk mitigation are covered.
This course is offered as open enrollment session at various locations; Arnhem (the Netherlands), London (UK), Dubai (UAE) and Singapore. General content of the courses will be the same, but country specific information can be included, so please check the different course leaflets for more detailed information on the exact course content. To register, please refer to the different registration forms.
Arnhem course-specific information
In the Arnhem course DNV GL will provide you with European and some local examples. The course will cover in the energy storage landscape and overview of grid-connected energy storage technologies. The second day will focus on lithium-ion technology in the technical, safety, market and business cases sessions.
Singapore course-specific information
In the Singapore course DNV GL will provide you with international and some local examples.
London course-specific information
The London course will cover the same general topics as the Arnhem course, however, DNV GL will provide you with UK specific examples.
Dubai course-specific information
In the Dubai course DNV GL will provide you with general topics such as the energy storage landscape, designing energy storage systems and the role of energy storage. On the second course day the afternoon session will focus on enabling energy storage in the GCC countries, delving deeper into the role of the governments, regulatory drivers and risks. International examples and lessons learned will be shared as well.
Course topics (please refer to the specific course leaflets for exact course contents)
- Roles of storage in the electricity grid
- Electricity markets
- Types of energy storage systems (e.g. Li-ion, Vanadium redox flow batteries, etc.)
- Components of energy storage
- Essential elements – Life cycle phases and planning
- Performance indicators/reliability

The topics covered during the course will be supported by case studies and examples. DNV GL will provide you with examples and present our view on best practices for energy storage using our industry supported GRIDSTOR methodology.
On completing DNV GL’s energy storage essentials course, you will be able to identify opportunities and risks for grid-connected energy storage in your business. And armed with a deeper understanding of the complexity of grid-connected energy storage projects, you will be able to make decisions and interact with stakeholders during the entire project life cycle.
This course is intended for project developers, insurers and lenders interested in, or working with, energy storage. Policy makers, utilities, EPC contractors and other professionals will also benefit from DNV GL’s world-renowned technical and commercial knowledge of energy storage.
An elementary knowledge of electricity and/or physics is recommended.
In-company and customized training
Courses are typically held at DNV GL offices. However in-company and customized training courses are available on request, with content, location and duration adapted to suit your needs.
In designing the course, we call on our 360-degree view on electrical energy storage systems. Courses cover the energy storage landscape (trends, types and applications), essential elements (components, sizing), technical and project risks, and the energy storage market. Additionally, we can provide combined courses covering wind, solar and/or grid-connection as well.
