Renewables Academy AG (RENAC)

- Certified Renewable Energy Project Developer: Wind Power

With focus on Wind Power technology, this online training allows insights in the planning process for a medium to large-scale wind farm - from the earliest stages to implementation. This online training explains the most important economic aspects of renewable energy project planning. It describes the methodologies of different support mechanisms and conveys knowledge of legal and regulatory frameworks. Participants will learn which parameters are used to assess the bankability of renewable energy projects, and understand a banker’s view on risks related to PV, wind and biogas projects. The course includes a checklist for the project developer to ensure that all data that the bank requires is ordered and complete.
