Online Course

With more people realising the benefits of Electric Vehicles (EVs) becoming portable power stations, the concept of “vehicle-to-grid “is fast becoming one of the hottest topics of discussion within the industry. From sleek lines and silent engines, these batteries on wheels can be much more than luxury cars. They could be part of the solution for a 100% renewable energy grid!

The Vehicle-to-Grid sprint course is relevant for anyone wishing to develop their technical understanding of EVs. This course will aim to provide a look into the current technologies in place, the vehicles that can facilitate this and the future of vehicle to grid as the industry moves forward. It will discuss vehicle to grid charging and the opportunities that it brings to consumers and the overall energy market.

This course is eligible for 10 elective CPD points with the Clean Energy Council (CEC), valid until 11 April 2023, and 1 hour professional development with Engineers Australia.
