  • Target groups
  • Course details

This online programme provides a detailed introduction of what biogas systems are, how they work, what they are for, and how they are planned and implemented.

It covers the most important economic aspects of renewable energy project planning and describes how the most common public policy support mechanisms work. The programme also looks into how banks view the risks related to renewable energy projects, and examines the parameters they use to assess any new project’s bankability in order to decide whether they will get on board and finance it. To this end, the programme includes a checklist for project developers to ensure that potential partner banks receive all the data they require in the way they require it.

"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"
