Course description

Jay Dauenhauer is the host the Energy Cast podcast and is a project manager at Duke Energy.

Jay has interviewed over 70 guests across all energy sectors. This course includes a 10 minute lecture on large scale solutions to energy storage along with 12 interview episodes of various large scale energy storage applications.

What quickly became apparent when profiling these guests is that you cannot have any meaningful conversation about renewable energy without energy storage. The conversation about energy storage really hasn’t included all the great storage technologies out there. It pretty much ends with lithium-ion batteries.

In this course you will learn about lithium-ion batteries, but you’ll see that energy storage is far more diverse than that.
