Register/website: Certified ReGrid® Manager (CRGM) – online training 

Description: You can become a Certified ReGrid® Manager (CRGM) by choosing RENAC's certified online training on grid integration of renewable energy. CRGM provides detailed information about methodologies to plan and operate electricity systems with large amounts of wind and solar power. You will learn how to manage transformation processes in their energy system and/or company.

The course material is suitable for persons who passed a technical university study or who have comprehensive practical experiences in the planning and operation of electricity grids / power systems. The knowledge of Applying Renewable Energy: Large-scale Systems, Complete Overview or similar is a pre-requisite to register for CRGM.

If you are not sure you have the required background to successfully take this training, the test in the demo course will help you evaluate your current knowledge.
