This course provides an overview of possible technologies
used for battery systems. Return of experience will be used
to explain the potential hazards of each battery technology.
Then, best practices to limit the risks and work safely will be
developed. A visit of the control room of ENGIE Batteries
Lab will be done to illustrate how the solutions proposed by
suppliers are evaluated. This is to complete the explanation
done on the consequences of battery choice (performance,
implementation, health and safety …).
