What is CapREG about?

CapREG “Capacity Development on Renewable Energy and Grid Integration” is a capacity building programme within the German International Climate Initiative (IKI). Within this framework the Renewables Academy AG (RENAC) has been commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) to provide a three-year capacity building programme for renewable energy and grid integration trainings.

The three-year programme provides comprehensive know-how on renewable energy technologies and assists in increasing their use. By creating suitable framework conditions for the development of renewable energy and by overcoming obstacles about the grid integration of renewable energy it will be possible to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, to encourage the financing of renewables and contribute to energy security.
