This ETC online training course covers photovoltaic (PV) systems, energy storage systems (ESS), and the interactions between these systems and the grid, along with microgrids and off-grid systems. Photovoltaic (PV) and storage are a match made in heaven. Photovoltaic (PV) and lithium batteries have gone down in price tenfold in the last decade, making these systems in a position to further down in price. In combination, it is imminent that these systems will take over the grid in the next ten (10) years.

Fossil fuels have a limited supply and the easier to reach sources are taken out of the ground, first making a trend for higher prices in the long term. Photovoltaic (PV) and energy storage systems (ESS) are made of materials that are not rare in most cases. As mass-production increases, prices drop faster than expected, as history shows. Energy Storage Systems (ESS) prices are also dropping because of the huge demand for batteries from the electric vehicle industry.

This will include photovoltaic (PV) systems, energy storage systems, grid connections, inverters, charge controllers, microgrids, batteries, site analysis, solar radiation, solar resource, and much more. Taking this training course will keep you informed about the latest trends in technology.


By the end of this ETC online training course, the participants will be able to:

  • Intelligently Discuss Photovoltaic (PV) and Energy Storage Systems (ESS) Applications
  • Understand Photovoltaic (PV) and Energy Storage Systems (ESS) Markets
  • Forecast Advances in Photovoltaic (PV) and Energy Storage Systems (ESS) Technology
