    This bundle consists of our 7 hour CPD accredited virtual course and the IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems 2nd Edition.

    This virtual course has been designed to provide an introduction to Electrical Energy Storage Systems (EESS) and covers the installation of AC or DC coupled systems into low voltage installations. Such systems provide for the storage of electrical energy so that it can be used at a time when it is needed. This course covers the particular requirements of BS 7671 and reflects the guidance provided by the IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems.



    This course is aimed at electricians, and those looking to gain a better understanding of Electrical Energy Storage Systems and the role they can play in supporting better use of energy.



    This virtual course explores the role of EESS in creating an ‘energy hub’ to allow users of installations to better manage energy usage within an installation. Installations with and without installed generation, for example Solar PV, are considered.



    • The new landscape - Distributed generation and the ‘Prosumer’

    • An overview of key safety considerations

    • EESS components - An overview of EESS arrangements

    • Design 1 - Considerations for system sizing

    • Determining self-consumption of domestic solar PV installations - Installations with and without EESS

    • Design 2 - Particular requirements of BS 7671 and IET CoP EESS

    • Inspection, testing and commissioning

    • Notification and handover - G98, G99

    This course includes an end of session assessment


    IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems 2nd Edition

    This IET Code of Practice looks at EESS applications and provides information for practitioners to safely and effectively specify, design, install, commission, operate and maintain a system.

    The scope of this IET Code of Practice includes EESS intended for fixed installation applications including:

    • Individual dwellings

    • Commercial applications, including multi-occupancy buildings and multi-occupancy residential buildings

    • Industrial applications covering: electrochemical energy storage systems in electrical installations; integration into low voltage (LV) power systems (AC and DC) and systems aligned with existing standards, regulations and guidance.

    This second edition of the Code of Practice builds on the first edition and provides the most up-to-date guidance to help support the growth of the electrical energy storage market. It has been updated to take account of developments in the industry, progress in standardization and address emerging technical challenges such as arc flash risk.
