  • Course details

This online training explains the most important economic aspects of renewable energy project planning. It describes the methodologies of different support mechanisms and conveys knowledge of legal and regulatory frameworks. Participants will learn which parameters are used to assess the bankability of renewable energy projects, and understand a banker’s view on risks related to PV, wind and biogas projects. The course includes a checklist for the project developer to ensure that all data that the bank requires is ordered and complete. The elective course allows insights in the planning process for a medium to large-scale solar thermal system - from the earliest stages to implementation.

Introductory courses

Each participant will have access to short introductory courses on energy and electricity topics to learn or revise the basics. These courses are not mandatory, and will not be covered in the exam.

Economics courses

  • Methodology of project valuation
  • Support mechanisms for renewable energy projects

Testimonials

"If you want to be a renewable energy project developer, RENAC is the best place to start. I learned a lot in easily manageable ways with much important materials"
Tadesse Tujuba Kenea, Certified Renewable Energy Project Developer, 2018

"I attended the course to get a complete understanding of the project development phase starting from the basics and it is exactly what i got. The way in which the entire course was laid out covering all aspects of project development was very impressive. The case studies and virtual classrooms help to get more than just a theoretical understanding of the subject and enabled me to quickly implement it at work without much difficulties. Thanks RENAC for the course"
Vinodh Gopal, Clean Energy Professional, India, Certified Renewable Energy Project Developer, 2018
