Organisation: Renewables Academy (RENAC) AG
Register/Website: Course: Green Energy Summer School IIa: Grid-connected and Off-grid Photovoltaics 

Description: Our current decade showed an extraordinary downward price development for photovoltaic (PV) technology. As a result, newly installed peak power of PV systems now surpasses all other technologies, both conventional/fossil and renewable. Use this RENAC course to get yourself up to speed on what is currently the most promising energy technology on our planet. You will receive solid theoretical knowledge combined with practical hands-on exercise. Our experienced trainers will get you involved in the training and will facilitate valuable group interaction and discussions.

This training suits those who:
 Are interested in PV and have no/little prior knowledge
 Need a comprehensive overview on PV systems and applications
 Start evaluating/developing their first projects such as contractors, project managers, engineers, electricians, quality inspectors, technical support crew and customer service professionals in the solar energy industry

After the seminar, you will be able to:
 Describe all system components and energy flows
 Identify reliable sources for solar irradiation data
 Calculate the estimated yearly energy yield of a sample PV system
 Discuss and calculate spatial setup of PV systems
 Draw a block diagram of an off-grid system and list the most important specifications of the components
 Assemble a fully functional off-grid system using real-world industry standard components
 Identify PV-Diesel hybrid system categories
 Analyse fuel and emissions savings potentials
 Describe operating parameters of both diesel generator and PV system and predict their interaction.
 Interpret the interconnections within the PV project development process.
 Conduct a first draft of a feasibility study
