Do you want to understand the big picture of renewable energy? Then take this training and learn the fundamentals of these seven technologies, their multiple uses, differences and what each one can achieve.

  • Flexibility to study at any time and from any location
  • Extensive support and live virtual classrooms
  • Multimedia learning material and self-evaluation tests
  • Certified by the 'Staatliche Zentralstelle für Fernunterricht - ZFU' (German Authority for Distance Learning)
  • RENAC certificate upon successful finalisation of the training
  • 10% discount for early bird registration

Photovoltaics:

Additionally, each participant will have access to short introductory courses on energy and electricity topics to learn or revise the basics. These courses are not mandatory, and will not be covered in the exam.

This training suits those who:

  • Need an overview of renewable energy technologies
  • Would like to refresh technical knowledge
  • Want to make the first step towards implementing renewable energy projects

After the seminar, you will be able to:

  • Assess resources and suitability of sites for each technology
  • Decide which components are to be used for which purpose
  • Roughly calculate system size and energy yield and determine crucial paramerters
  • Explain the principle functioning of each technology

Upon successful finalisation of the training, you will receive a RENAC Certificate.

Possible specialisations after successfully finishing this training:
