the proliferation of lithium-ion technologies

This course will look at the cost of reduction curve of manufacturing, the experience curve of the market and market operators, the technology evolution and different types of lithium technologies available to the market. This course will also take a view of where the market is heading regarding lithium-ion energy storage.

11.00 – 12.00

the an/nzs5139 - 'readers digest' version

The AN/NS5139 is in Draft Version 2 and is expected to be released imminently without any significant changes. As such, this course will provide a high level overview of the AN/NS5139 and its implications.

the rise of saps - potential rule changes to network led saps

Regulation change in the National Electricity Market (NEM) has been fairly active over the past few years and the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) is looking into another regulation change that could have a huge impact on the way the network operates and how we define SAPS. This course will look at the discussion paper put forward by the AEMC at the end of last year outlining the potential for Network owned and operated SAPS.

friday 14 june 2019 - day two

9.00 – 10.00 

dark horse energy storage - non-lithium technologies creating an impact

New and developing energy storage technology makes up some of the most active R&D activity in the energy sector. This course will look at some of the non-lithium-ion technology on the horizon and some of the non-lithium-ion technology making an impact now.

11.00 – 12.00

array over sizing and days of autonomy

This course will look at the relationship between oversizing the PV array in a standalone power system and the capacity of the battery bank required to service the load when there is no solar generation, better known as days of autonomy. The course is based of a detailed analysis looking at Australian examples.

14.00 – 15.00

mini-grids and micro-grids defined

Mini-grids and Micro-grids are terminology which is often used interchangeably. This course looks at the real differences between the two topology types. The course also looks at their similarities, technologies used to create them and market mechanisms at play for each.
