Online course: Certified Renewable Energy Project Developer: Biogas

Dates: 1 October 2019 – 31 March 2020
Organisation: Renewables Academy (RENAC) AG
Register/Website: Online course: Certified Renewable Energy Project Developer: Biogas

Description: 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. The elective course allows insights in the planning process for a medium to large-scale biogas plant – from the earliest stages to implementation.
