Grid Integration of Renewable Energy

Certified ReGrid® Manager (CRGM)

This online training demonstrates how a high amount of variable renewable energy (wind and solar) can be safely integrated into the electricity supply. It shows which steps are essential for the power system transformation.

The online training was developed within the ReGrid® programme on "Capacity Building on Integration of Large Amounts of RenewableEnergy into the Electricity Grids“ within the German International Climate Initiative (ICI) from 2011 to 2013. Since then, RENAC offers thistraining to interested professionals worldwide and regularly updates the training material. More than 250 experts working for grid operators, energy supply service companies, energy ministries, regulators, project developers or consultants in more than 10 countries have successfully completed the training.
