Energy storage is widely seen as the Holy Grail in sustainable energy systems. To enable a change to a low-carbon energy system, based on variable renewables, storage and flexibility are key.
This course is taught by a top energy expert, Robert Kleiburg, and dives into the technical, economic and legal aspects around energy flexibility and the available solutions, namely energy storage.
Includes an inside look into exemplary benefits of gas storage and innovative business models for energy storages in Europe, including underground gas storage (UGS) and power-to-gas (hydrogen storage).
This highly intensive and practical course will put you up to speed on all aspects of the most difficult and crucial energy challenge today: storage and flexibility.
The programme provides an overview of what flexibility entails and why storage is a fundamental part of it, and inherently, of the grid. Day two of the programme dwells into the underground gas storage (UGS) business and has a virtual tour of the Hungarian Gas Storage facilities. Finally, the role of hydrogen in energy systems will be further discussed, also with representation from the hydrogen project HyStock.
