Lars Koerner, RENAC
Current position:
Lars Koerner joined Renewables Academy (RENAC) AG in May 2014 as Project Director. He coordinates and conducts training programs at Renewables Academy (RENAC) AG mainly in the field of solar energy systems. Off-grid systems and PV-Diesel-Hybrid mini-grids for rural electrification or industrial applications are his special interest.

Professional experience:
Before joining RENAC Lars gained seven years of experience as project engineer and senior product manager at SolarWorld AG where he also managed several rural electrification projects. His experience in the area of solar energy spans further through his work at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Almeria, Spain and Fraunhofer ISE in Freiburg, Germany. He is an expert in sizing and simulation of solar energy systems and the co-author on off-grid systems in Earthscan’s 3rd edition of “Planning and Installing Photovoltaic Systems”.

Lars holds an engineering diploma in Environmental Engineering / Renewable Energies and is also a state-licensed electrician.


"My overall experience with RENAC was a pleasant one. The material was provided in a cohesive manner on a platform that was easy to interact with. I was able to relate the material to my professional field. I will be able to use what I have learnt to improve the work that I do."
Quanley Marieatte, Applying Energy Efficiency, 2020

"Applying Energy Efficiency gives a complete picture of the policy, managerial and technical aspects of planning and application of the energy efficiency in a holistic manner; at both the national and sectoral levels."
Hossein Khajehpour, TU Berlin, Applying Energy Efficiency, 2018
