Skills Development

This IESA initiative aims to organize training courses with the help of other leading alliances and knowledge banks in the Indian energy storage industry. These courses aim to teach the attendees the fundamentals of batteries, the concept of storing energy, materials used in different types of energy storage, recognize the parameters that control energy storage performance and troubleshoot challenges related to energy storage systems. Also they will get a keen insight into the application areas of energy storage including individual application cases. They will also get to know more about renewable energy, grid applications, global and Indian market scenario related to energy storage systems and how to gain maximum efficiency. These skill development programs will eventually help companies enter the energy storage market as well as help existing manufacturers expand their business in energy storage manufacturing by imparting their current/potential employees with the right skillset.
