Grid integration of renewable energy

For individuals

System integration of variable renewable energies is becoming increasingly important because wind and solar energy will account for more than 80% of global capacity growth from renewable energies over the next five years (source: IEA 2017).

RENAC offers blended learning trainings for those who like to plan and operate power supply systems with large amounts of variable wind and PV. These trainings prepare for current and future tasks and for those who want to become or remain leading experts in the energy sector.
Trainings will cover residual load approach, feed-in time series, short-term power forecasts, reliable generation capacity, balancing dimensioning, advanced inverter and generator technology, voltage and frequency control in transmission and distribution grids, grid code compliance procedures, study approaches as well as strategy implementation.

RENAC uses its training center equipment with a three phase grid connected double fed induction wind power generator, three phase 50 Hz mini grid and long distance transmission lines.

"I participated in the GEFS program to expand my knowledge of Green Energy Finance, specifically renewable energy financing. Overall, the GEFS program has allowed me to gain a better appreciation of renewable energy financing, from the technology and process to operations, contracting, financing, and eventual decommissioning. I believe the GEFS program is highly comprehensive and has a broad industry scope that applies to renewable energy practitioners worldwide."
Paulo Esmaquel, Green Energy Finance Specialist, 2023

"Having recently developed a keen interest in Renewables and Green Energy, along with a plan to begin investing in the sector, I discovered that the RENAC GEFS course outline adequately covered my areas of interest. The material was presented in an organized and cohesive manner, and my favorite module was the one on RE project financing.
The learning experience has had an immediate impact on my daily professional activities. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in this sector."
Eshiet Solomon, Commodity Trade Finance, Methana Energy, Green Energy Finance Specialist, 2023

"I had an overall great experience on the programme. The role play is definitely the highlight since it's quite a new method that i experienced. Well put together."
