Energy storage is an emerging group of technologies that is enabling the operation of electrical vehicles, energy production systems such photovoltaics, wind, etc., electrical vehicles, and mobile electronic devices.

Who should attend: Students currently attending College or graduates or employed/unemployed workers seeking to learn about electrical energy storage and Lithium-ion batteries to find related jobs or to advance within their current job. Students will be trained in a two-week program offered in May of 2023.

Offered from May 15th to May 26th, 2023, at SUNY Poly’s Albany campus and at The University at Albany in person or virtually

Registration and attendance is free for all program participants

The workshop covers the fundamentals of energy storage technologies, giving you an understanding of battery cell manufacturing and teaching you the skills to manage storage units and innovate in this technology field. Faculty and industry experts will provide instruction through focused in classroom training and hands-on laboratory at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) in Albany campus and at the Ion Beam Laboratory at the University at Albany. Students will gain exposure to the aspects of building a battery from start to finish and use batteries in conjunction with power generation system such as PVs. Students will be able to engage in many different opportunities for experiential learning and internships. At the completion of the training Workshop the students will receive a Certificate of Attendance.

Topics Included: Batteries Types Overview, Battery Applications: Cell and Battery Pack Design, Integrations - Energy Storage and Conversion for Hybrid and Electrical Vehicles, Introduction to Photovoltaics, and energy storage Market deployment, Market Assessment – Use Case for modeling for a customer match.
