Description: Based on the current world market trends in green energy, Applying Renewable Energy offers different course combinations on a wide variety of technologies. These trainings will provide you with the fundamental knowledge on renewable energy to carry out your professional activities.

Applying Renewable Energy establishes the perfect basis to undertake further RENAC Online specialisations.

Participants can choose between five different course combinations, as listed below. Additionally, each participant will have access to short introductory courses (on the topics of energy, the solar resource, electricity, and electric grids) to learn or revise the basics.

  • Applying Renewable Energy: Market Leaders (3 courses)

Get to know the technologies with the biggest shares in the renewable energy world markets! This training will provide you with an overview of the most widely used technologies worldwide:

    • Photovoltaic
    • Wind power
    • Biogas
  • Applying Renewable Energy: Large-Scale Systems (3 courses)

The use of renewable energy is growing worldwide. An increasing number of countries have developed targets to increase the contribution of renewable energy to their energy mix. This training focuses on large-scale renewable energy systems for electricity production. Furthermore, this course combination is perfect if you want to gain knowledge on grid integration of renewable energy.

    • Photovoltaic
    • Wind power
    • Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)
  • Applying Renewable Energy: Solar Technologies (4 courses)

Solar technologies can be used to produce electricity (e.g. to reduce fuel consumption), or for hot water provision. By choosing this training, you will get an understanding of:

    • Photovoltaic
    • Solar thermal
    • Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)
    • PV-diesel hybrid systems
  • Applying Renewable Energy: Small-Scale Systems (4 courses)

Small-scale systems present manifold benefits: They can be conveniently used for the provision of hot water or electricity in households or in remote rural areas without access to the electricity grid. Also, they offer interesting synergies with agriculture.  In this training, you will study the following technologies:

    • Photovoltaic
