Free Workshop Schedule
Free workshops continue to be announced for the Australian Energy Storage Exhibition with Q Cells and LG Chem added to the program.
Headlining the free workshop program will be the GSES CPD sessions. Across two days, up to 90 CPD points will be awarded for installers and sessions will cover a variety of topics related to on-grid energy storage.
Workshops are a great opportunity to learn more about the industry, ask questions and see emerging products.
All workshops do not need to be registered for separately and come as part of your free exhibition registration. You can register for the free exhibition here.
