Our current decade showed an extraordinary downward price development for photovoltaic (PV) technology. As a result, newly installed peak power of PV systems now surpasses all other technologies, both conventional/fossil and renewable. Use this RENAC course to get yourself up to date about this most promising energy technology on our planet. You will receive solid theoretical knowledge on grid-tied PV combined with practical hands-on exercise. Our experienced trainers will get you involved in the training and will facilitate valuable group interaction and discussions.

Topics

  • Introduction on PV applications and current global market trends and numbers
  • Grid-tied PV systems
  • PV project development and (economic) feasibility
  • Hands-on work with solar equipment
  • Site visit to a large scale PV power plant

The course is designed to:

  • Give interested persons the knowledge, tools and confidence to make educated decisions on grid tied PV projects
  • Facilitate the exchange of potential/specific project ideas between all participants who bring in perspectives from around the globe

After the seminar, you will be able to:

  • Assess solar resource and yield
  • Identify PV plant components
  • Design a plant with PVsyst (basic design)
  • Analyse operational data from a real PV system
  • Evaluate the core activities within the PV value chain
  • Assess main steps of project development and implementation
  • Comprehend key stakeholders and project structures
  • Identify risks, risk mitigation, dos and don’ts
  • Assess the KPIs of PV project calculation
  • Investigate main costs (CAPEX and OPEX) and other relevant figures for an economic analysis
  • Identify leverage of projects
  • Evaluate a project with an according economic efficiency calculation tool

The training suits those who:

  • Are interested in PV and have no/little prior knowledge
  • Need a comprehensive overview on PV systems and applications
  • Start evaluating/developing their first projects such as contractors, project managers, engineers, electricians, quality inspectors, technical support crew and customer service professionals in the solar energy industry
