Certified Renewable Energy Project Developer: Solar Thermal

  • Content
  • Learning objectives
  • Target groups
  • Course details

This online programme provides a detailed introduction of what solar thermal energy systems are, 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.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

Introductory courses

The programme includes access to short introductory courses on energy and electricity topics to provide participants with the opportunity to learn or revise the basics. These courses are not mandatory and are not covered in the exam.

Core courses

The programme contains three core courses on the essential financial considerations of renewable energy projects. These courses are mandatory and are a part of the exam.

  • Methodology of project valuation
  • Policy Frameworks for RE Power Generation
  • Renewable energy project finance

Solar thermal energy electives

The elective specialisation of this programme in solar thermal systems includes one optional course introducing the various aspects of this technology and one mandatory course on the planning of large-scale solar thermal systems.

Receive a reminder one week before the registration deadline.

After completing this programme, you will be able to:

  • calculate the relevant economic parameters of a renewable energy project;
  • decide which support mechanisms are applicable;
  • prepare the data required for a bankability assessment; and
  • define the necessary steps from planning to O&M for a large-scale solar thermal system.

Upon successful finalisation of the training, you will receive a RENAC Certificate.

This programme is suitable for you if you:

  • are charged with planning or developing a renewable energy project;
  • need to deal with various stakeholders in a project appraisal process; or
  • will supervise the implementation of a solar thermal system.

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
