About the course

Renewable energy has become vitally important. The costs of renewable energy is decreasing all the time, and increased sources of renewable power are expected in the coming decades.
Storage is an essential element in this energy transition. Recent cost reductions in storage technologies have meant that storage is now competitive. Batteries in particular are starting to gain in the markets. In 2016, lithium-ion batteries made up almost half of all new battery deployments,

This course, will help you understand how to model, structure and finance this new part of the renewables market.
