Battery-based Energy Storage Systems • VIDEO

By Anthony Capkun

Renewable energies like solar and wind hog the headlines, but an important element is often missing from those stories: Energy Storage.

After all, without the ability to store energy for later use—for those times when the sun isn’t shining or the wind isn’t blowing—renewable energy isn’t very practical.

This webinar occurred June 6, 2018. WATCH THE RECORDING above (edited).

Don’t be the last to learn about battery-based energy storage systems (BESSs) and the possibilities they entail.

Join electrical trainer Larry Cantelo for his webinar “A Primer on Battery-based Energy Storage Systems”, scheduled for June 6, 2018, at noon Mountain Time (2 pm Eastern). Larry will:

• Provide an overview of battery-based energy storage systems (BESSs).
• Explain what is driving growth in the BESS industry.
• Explain the different kinds of BESS systems.
• Discuss some Canadian installations.


Larry Cantelo is the president of the Electrical Inspectors Association of Alberta. He has been an independent electrical trainer for about the past five years, dealing with topics such as the CE Code, energy storage, Red Seal preparation, troubleshooting, electrical theory, blueprint reading, motor control, electric vehicle infrastructure training and solar photovoltaics (PV).

Prior to that, he served as an electrical instructor at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) for about 12 years. His various certifications include: Professional Electrical Contractor (PEC); Red Seal interprovincial journeyman electrician; Business management; Photovoltaic installer; Construction technology; and Electrical safety codes officer (Groups A & B).
