Electrical Installation Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems
Electrical energy storage systems (EESS) are widely considered to be vital in supporting the low carbon transition, including managing renewable generation, supporting networks and helping decarbonise transportation. This course examines the design, modelling and installation of stationary EESS within the wider context of decarbonisation and flexibility.
Learners will gain an understanding of the 2nd Edition of the IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems, including the steps involved in the planning, installation and commissioning of electrical energy storage systems as well as safe system design. They will also learn how to best make electrical energy storage work to optimise usage of local generation, off-grid and parallel operation.
Topics covered in the course include major components, typical architectures, storage types, operating states, planning, inspection and testing, design, specification, modelling and safety. The course also looks at EESS operation and maintenance, handover and documentation, and network connection/DNO approval.
All prices shown are exclusive of VAT which will be added at checkout.
“This is a comprehensive course covering a wide range of considerations for the implementation of energy storage solutions in the real world. It covers design considerations, sizing rationale, and integration with renewable solutions as well as implementing in a grid context. Thoroughly recommend for those wanting to get up to speed with real world energy storage solutions and applications.” – Keith Scoles, PowerIt Fwd

Dr Andrew F Crossland CEng PhD MEng
Andrew is a specialist in interdisciplinary modelling - combining social, financial and technical modelling to develop and deliver energy projects. He has worked in the railway, electrical distribution, research and solar industries developing new techniques and models for the rapidly changing, and increasingly low carbon energy mix. He won the Energy UK “Rising Star” Award for his work in the sector in 2017.
Andrew founded the energy tracking system MyGridGB, charting the British electricity mix, carbon emissions and fossil fuel consumption in real time. Through this he works to provide an unbiased view of the potential and contribution of different energy sources.
As an Energy Storage Specialist for three years at SolarCentury, Andrew helped to developed on residential, large battery and microgrid projects in the UK and East/Southern Africa. Andrew was also Chair of the Behind the Meter Energy Storage Group at the Solar Trade Association at this time.
In 2018, Andrew joined Infratec in New Zealand working on energy projects across New Zealand and the Pacific. He is also a director of Advance Further Energy Ltd which provides specialist energy storage consultancy services in the UK.
