Event A: Energy Storage

Date and Location:

17 – 19 July 2018, Johannesburg

“Mastering the technology solutions, business considerations and competitive environments of the booming electricity storage market.”


This training course provides a comprehensive, business-focused summary of the electricity storage market. It covers the variety of competing storage technologies and describes the wide variety of problems they can address, at a wide range of deployment sizes and timescales. It also considers alternatives to storage and barriers to its market growth, making it essential for those seeking to evaluate risks as well as opportunities. You will leave with a clear understanding of why and where storage markets are growing, what could limit this growth and what the future trends will be. So, if you are thinking of investing in or developing an energy storage business, this course provides your essential grounding in the core issues.

The course is designed to provide a clear, independent, business-focused introduction to the subject in language suited to non-engineers; particularly senior, commercial executives and investors. No prior knowledge is required.

Along with presented core information, you’ll examine examples from around the world, discuss market analysis variables and quantify key issues using simple numerical calculations and Excel-based tools.

Benefits of Attending

- Speak the language of electricity storage: terminology and concepts explained
- Understand the key variables determining the economics of electricity storage projects
- Review current and emerging market opportunities for electricity storage
- Learn and discuss how financial returns and risks will arise in the electricity storage market
- Be better able to converse with storage project partners, suppliers or investors
- Know what to look for when evaluating electricity storage market opportunities
- Be better able to identify key investment and project performance risks
- Learn how to analyse and critique electricity storage business models

Who Should Attend

This course is ideal if:

- You are from the investment community. Electricity storage presents a fast-growing market opportunity which you are keen to investigate, but you want to gain an independent perspective on the competing options, the economic environment in which storage projects operate, and the operational and revenue risks which are important to them.

- You are working within the power sector in a commercial or business development role. You need a clearly-explained, multi-faceted understanding of how, where and why electricity storage is disrupting existing markets and business models, so that you can understand new market opportunities and competitive risks facing your own business.


“I not only would recommend him, but I have also been sending my team to his courses. He combines detailed technical expertise with deep knowledge of the (complex) energy markets, also bringing it all together in the context of each relevant regulation and the economic business cases underlying investment decisions. I have enjoyed his courses – and have learnt a lot from them”
- Head of Energy and Natural Resources, Credit Agricole CIB

“This was one of my best spent weeks on training all year! I found the trainer very knowledgeable and enthusiastic in presenting the material, also enabling knowledge exchange between participants in the group. I really enjoyed his interesting lessons and the group work he provided for additional learning outcome. Thanks.”
- Vice President, Statkraft Development AS

“He is a professional trainer with excellent presentation skills. He is able to make simple presentation of complex issues and has a very good knowledge of the renewable energy matters. I highly recommend him as a trainer!”
- Directeur, IDETA

“I attended one of his courses in July 2016. He was personable and very thorough and the course was well researched, interesting and on point. Highly recommended for anyone looking to gain knowledge in Renewable Energy.”
- Head of Environmental Products, Tullett Prebon

If you’re interested in energy storage, then you should seriously consider spending just one extra day to get up to speed on “Grid-connected Electric Vehicles”. After all, from the power system perspective, EVs are simply batteries on wheels. They store energy when they charge, adding to electricity demand. When plugged in, they have the potential to interact with so-called “stationary” energy storage systems - or even to compete with them for energy storage revenue streams.

So take this chance to get the complete energy storage picture: both fixed and mobile.

Event B: Grid-Connected Electric Vehicles (EVs)

Date and Location:

20 July 2018, Johannesburg

“An introduction to the issues facing power systems when mobile batteries (EVs) become mass-market.”


From the perspective of the power system, EVs are batteries on wheels. They add an additional source of distributed demand, requiring sufficient electricity generation and grid infrastructure to meet this. However they are also discussed as a source of distributed supply too, with so-called “vehicle-to-grid” (V2G) models aiming to use their batteries as sources of electricity discharge when and where this will add value.

This time-efficient 1-day briefing looks at EVs not from the transport perspective, but from the perspective of those required to “fuel” them: those involved in the supply and distribution of electricity. It is designed to provide a perfect introduction to the question: what are the impacts on electricity systems when EV markets start to grow to significant sizeæ What size is ‘significant’ and what risks and innovation opportunities start to ariseæ

Benefits of Attending

- Understand the key variables determining the impact of EVs on electricity systems: how much more electricity will be requiredæ
- Learn why EVs cannot become mass-market without “smart” charging management
- Quantify the carbon-emission impacts of substituting fossil-fuelled vehicles for EVs
- Understand the challenges that mass-market EVs will create for grid distribution operators
- Review examples and projects in charging infrastructure and charging control from around the world
- Be better able to converse with EV and grid project partners, suppliers or investors
- Begin to identify key power system business opportunities which arise from the growth of EVs

Training Methodology

The agenda will combine presented materials with plenty of opportunity for QandA, interactive discussions, and the use of quantitative models to illustrate key learning points. Current market examples and data are utilised wherever relevant.
