EUCI’s Energy Storage Procurement for Electric Cooperatives and Public Power

August 31, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The NCCETC’s Senior Policy Analyst, David Sarkisian, is a featured instructor for this course.


The grid continues to face multiple challenges as technology advancements transform the way electricity is produced and delivered. Whether it comes from batteries, thermal systems, elevated weights, compressed air, hydrogen production, or pumped hydro, energy storage is critical to the advancement of the power sector. Storage has the potential to provide a wide array of benefits to the electric grid, and states across the country are increasingly considering statewide targets for the deployment of energy storage resources. As new storage technologies become available, electric cooperatives and public power utilities continue to explore the possibilities of implementing the technology or the potential benefits and opportunities to their customers.

EUCI’s virtual event will help you to keep abreast of the tremendous potential of energy storage and how to undertake storage initiatives in a practical and manageable way. The course will describe and share the drivers, benefits, applications, best practices, contracts negotiation, operational challenges, and technical considerations for energy storage systems. The course will assist attendees in their efforts to evaluate the role that storage can and will play in their operations.
