"I nearly blew up the chemistry lab. Can I survive battery energy storage?"
Lehigh University's Energy Systems Engineering program would like to remind you about its upcoming speakers in their Energy Seminar Series, which brings together students and industry personnel in a talk focusing on current energy issues and follow-up discussions. Registration is FREE of charge for all seminars. Light refreshments will be served.
The Fall semester series continues on Tuesday, Nov. 5, at 6:00 pm with The Episcopal Academy faculty & 2013 ESE Alumni, Cheryl Cossel.
Energy storage has contributed to a new language combining distributed power systems, market economics, and the periodic table. As fast as new chemistries are developed, new market rules emerge. Determining which battery technology type provides the best investment for a particular end-use customer is an ever-changing process requiring intimate knowledge of regional incentives, tariff structures, and the different chemistries of batteries. When appropriately monetized, battery energy storage has the potential to compete with traditional infrastructure improvements, as well as enhance behind the meter opportunities. Topics include battery chemistries, applications and limitations, and market structures.
