GRTPV technical and economic fundamentals (2 Days)

District Officers Training (DO)

About the training

District officers of State Nodal Agencies (SNA) are the first point of contact for people potentially interested in rooftop PV systems or projects. A district officer needs to have a good overview of all relevant aspects of grid-connected rooftop PV systems (GRTPV). This encompasses the current market situation, state-of-the-art technical solutions and the economic feasibility taking into account available subsidy schemes.

Participants will be able to identify whether a project is financially feasible and summarise the available subsidy schemes and important rules and regulations. A renowned national experts will use his experience to bring participants up to date on relevant topics in an interactive way. Students who successfully complete this unique course will be awarded an internationally recognised RENAC certificate.

Target groups and certification

This training is designed for professionals interested in an overview on both the technical and economic factors to consider with GRTPV systems. This training would also be valuable for applicants whose roles are similar to the one of District Officers of India’s various State Nodal Agencies.

At the end of the training, successful participants will receive an internationally recognised RENAC certificate.

Learning objectives

The goal of this training is to update participants with a good overview of all aspects of GRTPV systems and the implementation of such projects. After attending the seminar participants will be able to:

  • Describe system components and setups
  • Illustrate energy flows in the system
  • Explain metering concepts
  • Identify key financial indicators of GRTPV systems
  • Summarise all applicable Indian rules, regulations and subsidy schemes

After this workshop, participants will be able to describe in detail what a GRTPV system is, how to determine the best course of action for the implementation of such a project and how to answer common questions by interested parties.

Methods and resources

Each training is designed for a maximum of 25 participants and will be led by one nationally renowned PV expert. By applying an interactive approach to the workshop, participants will immediately apply the knowledge they gain in different exercises. These exercises and the resulting discussions will help participants identify common difficulties and effective solutions they can apply when working in the field. The training will be delivered in Hindi and English. The training material will be delivered in English.


The Programme will cover 100% of the training fees for the training. This includes all course materials (colour printed hard copies) and all teaching equipment. The inclusive catering will provide lunch and coffee/tea breaks for the duration of the workshop. Personal expenses such as travel and accommodation for the duration of the training will have to be covered independently by the participants.
