  • Content
  • Learning objectives
  • Target groups
  • Course details

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

This training will suit those who:

  • Are interested in PV and have no/little prior knowledge
  • Need a comprehensive overview on PV systems and applications

Dr. Emilienne Tingwey, RENAC

Current position:


Emilienne Tingwey joined the Renewables Academy (RENAC) AG in Berlin in 2010 and started off as a project assistant in the international know-how transfer project TREE (Transfer Renewable Energy & Efficiency). After managing various tailor-made courses offered by RENAC and carrying out solar training exercises, she is presently the project director of all face-to face training programmes at RENAC. She is head of the Green Energy Summer School, an annual study event offered by RENAC.



Professional experience:


Emilienne is a certified TüV trainer and trains people on how to carry out renewable energy training seminars and helps others to develop training programmes in renewable energy.Additionally, she is really keen to empower women and youth in the RE sector through training. With RENAC she carried out the APEC project ‘Empowering women as managers of the Renewable Energy‘ on behalf of the United States Department of Energy. Through training and mentoring, the project helped to increase the contribution of women to RE development in APEC economies. She was also in charge of a GIZ sponsored project in Cameroon: Transfer of renewable energy knowledge through the usage of solar photovoltaic to provide energy (electricity) to a local health centre: an off-grid system was installed in a local health centre and thereby training some youth in the community.



Education:


Emilienne Tingwey holds a PhD in Environmental Sciences and a Masters in Environmental and Resource Management from the Brandenburg Technical University (BTU) in Cottbus (April 2009). Born in Cameroon, Dr. Emilienne Tingwey grew up and studied in Cameroon right up to her bachelor’s degree before moving to Germany. She speaks fluent English, French, Pidgin, Moghamo and German.
