Batteries for Small Scale Solar Systems

An Engineering Education Australia webinar:

Residential and Commercial Applications

As solar becomes one of the most popular types of electricity generation across the globe, energy storage solutions become equally important.

Delivered by education partners, Global Sustainable Energy Solutions (GSES), this webinar covers batteries for small scale residential and commercial solar power systems focusing on the technical fundamentals, followed by the economics of battery systems – the cost vs benefit tipping point, concluding with an exploration of emerging applications.

You will learn how batteries work and how they integrate with solar power systems, the expected lifetime and performance of these systems, and future of the industry including new applications in the residential and commercial sectors such as Virtual Power Plants (VPPs) and Electric Vehicles (EVs).
