Mastering Solar Energy

 

Solar Energy Technology is one of the fastest-growing technologies in the world. Two decades ago, from small-scale and niche applications, it has become one of the mainstream clean energy sources. The solar photovoltaic (PV) industry is nowadays one of the largest and fastest-growing job generators in the world, with an increasing need for experts that can support this growth. A career in solar energy can mean working onshore or offshore in an office or a lab. In addition, many positions offer the opportunity to travel and work in an international environment where PV power plants are being built. 

This live training provides a broad understanding of the history and mechanics of converting light into electricity (the PV effect). The course examines economic issues, discussing PV installation costs, incentives, and risks. After taking this course, attendees will be able to independently identify and describe the components of a PV system, compare various types of solar cells, sketch a PV system, and analyze the differences between rooftop and ground mount configurations. 

This is not just a regular course. It’s complete, intensive, and practically focused on both the technical and commercial sides of solar energy.  

  

Start your career in a promising field of business and technology – solar energy! Extend your knowledge and skills in photovoltaics and connect with industry and academic experts.
