Renewables Academy AG (RENAC)

- Certified Flexible Power System Specialist

The six-months online training “Certified Flexible Power System Specialist” has been developed in response to the increasing need to understand the operation of power systems with high shares of variable renewable energy as wind and solar-PV (VRE). It aims to explain the effects of Variable Renewable Energies on power system operations and generation capacity expansion planning. The training shall equip participants with knowledge on flexibility options in power systems that that allow high shares of Variable Renewwable Energy

  • 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)
