Course: Green Energy Summer School IIa: Grid-connected Photovoltaics

Dates: 19 – 23 August 2019
Organisation: Renewables Academy (RENAC) AG
Register/Website: Green Energy Summer School IIa: Grid-connected 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 date about this most promising energy technology on our planet. You will receive solid theoretical knowledge on grid-tied PV combined with practical hands-on exercise. Our experienced trainers will get you involved in the training and will facilitate valuable group interaction and discussions.

The 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:

  • Assess solar resource and yield
  • Identify PV plant components
  • Design a plant with PVsyst (basic design)
  • Analyse operational data from a real PV system
  • Evaluate the core activities within the PV value chain
  • Assess main steps of project development and implementation
  • Comprehend key stakeholders and project structures
  • Identify risks, risk mitigation, dos and don’ts
  • Assess the KPIs of PV project calculation
  • Investigate main costs (CAPEX and OPEX) and other relevant figures for an economic analysis
  • Identify leverage of projects
  • Evaluate a project with an according economic efficiency calculation tool
