Renewable Energy, Energy Economics and Finance

15 April to 26 April
Kigali -Rwanda
25 March to 5 April

This course outline, Renewable Energy, Energy Economics and Finance is designed and tailor-made for Power Distribution companies which are more into solar other than on-shore and off-shore wind turbines. The training is focused solar Photovoltaic (PV) assessment, sizing, batteries, installation, Financing, Solar Operations and Maintenance (O&M), integration and electric vehicles (EV)s.

This training programme intended to impact knowledge in Renewable Energy and Energy efficiency, Energy Auditing and the legalities involved in this area. Solar equipment, components, and systems are large factors in a solar investment. It further seeks to provide valuable green energy knowledge for decision makers at managerial level whether to invest in solar systems or not, it goes on to equip technical staff on the practicalities in system sizing, installation and commissioning and maintenance
