Presentation: Aaron Lewtas will be bringing us up to date with the latest developments in storage technology, both for grid-connected and off-grid systems. The various situation requirements and the appropriate system configurations available to satisfy them will be discussed; as part of this Aaron will describe what is meant by the expression “storage ready” when used by various entities and the importance of understanding this when planning a grid-connected system to which storage will be added at a future date.

He has experience with grid connect solar, grid-connect battery systems and off-grid systems in both residential and commercial sectors.
