  • Course details

This online programme provides a detailed introduction of how medium to large-scale wind farm projects 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.


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.

  • Renewable energy feasibility assessment and investment valuation
  • Policy Frameworks for RE Power Generation
  • Renewable energy project finance

Wind power planning electives

The elective specialisation of this programme in wind power includes one optional course introducing wind power technology in its different forms and one mandatory course on wind power planning and measurement.
