Webinar | The battery storage technologies and uses driving the energy transition

It is widely accepted that battery storage has become one of the most disruptive technologies in the energy sector. It follows that battery storage has the potential to be the critical technology required to make the widespread adoption of renewable energy possible.

The importance of batteries

An increasing number of mobile and stationary applications, such as electric vehicles or PV connected systems, are being powered or supported by batteries. Subsequently, battery technologies have and continue to grow exponentially to keep up with new demands. But each application is different. And selecting the right technology for a particular application is essential for its success.


Unfortunately, many professionals working in the energy sector fail to fully comprehend exactly how battery storage can transform the operations of their energy systems. The true value of batteries’ role in the energy transition is thus often overlooked.


In this free webinar, we focus on battery storage technologies and how it is used in driving the energy transition. More specifically, we will look at:

Role of battery storage in the energy transition

Dr. Momo Safari, Associate Professor of Electrochemical Engineering at Hasselt University/EnergyVille, will discuss the role of batteries in the energy transition. More specifically, the current status of battery technology for residential and transport applications in terms of price, technical indexes, and more. He will also introduce you to the prospective technologies which can go beyond the current limitations of state-of-the-art battery systems.

Role of storage in PV installations in buildings

Energy storage technology is changing the way renewable energy is used in urban environments. Thanks to battery storage systems, even more solar energy can be integrated efficiently into the electricity grid. This calls for a rethinking of the entire energy system in buildings. Dr. ir. Johan Driesen, Professor of Power Systems Engineering at KU Leuven/EnergyVille, will explain why a rethink of the entire energy system in buildings is required.

Importance of battery testing for your specific application

Grietus Mulder, Senior Battery Expert at VITO and EnergyVille, will present a comprehensive overview of existing battery testing methods and related standardisation work for different purposes. He will also highlight the real benefits of well-defined screening of battery technologies before you enter development and implementation phases of batteries in your system.


We hope that you find the content of this webinar interesting. It takes place on Friday, 25 October from 4.30pm to 6pm CET. Registration is free via the link below. After registering, you will receive a confirmation and joining instructions by email.


We look forward to seeing you online later this month.
