For individuals

Bioenergy systems comprise a wide range of technologies starting from the production of biofuels, the generation and utilisation of biogas up to the combustion or gasification of solid biomass. RENAC offers bioenergy courses for different demands ranging from beginners who would like to get an overview on the entire field of bioenergy systems up to bioenergy professionals who would like to deepen their knowledge in one specific technology.

RENAC courses take a holistic view on the entire bioenergy systems and cover environmental, technical and economic aspects of the respective technology and the required framework conditions. The courses can be booked as online and face to face trainings or in a combination of both as a blended learning concept.

RENAC´s bioenergy face to face trainings are very interactive and comprise practical exercises and group works, e.g. for assessing the technical and economic viability of a biogas project, as well as field trips to outstanding bioenergy projects.
