Renewables Academy Berlin 2009


El objetivo del Proyecto TREE  (Transfer in Renewable Energy and Efficiency – Transferencia en Energías Renovables y Eficiencia Energética) es la transferencia de conocimientos y Know-how en temas de Energías Renovables, Eficiencia Energética y Cambio Climático, para tomadores de deciciones e Ingenieros de países emergentes y en vias de desarrollo.

Acción Sustentable participó de esta experiencia durante Enero de 2009 en Berlín , en la RENAC – Renewables Academy (Academia de Energías Renovables de Berlín) en el Seminario de Energía Solar Fotovoltaica  desconectada de la red eléctrica (off-grid photovoltaic).

The objective of TREE is to facilitate the transfer of know-how in renewable energies, energy efficiency and climate protection, for decision makers, high potentials and engineers from developing and emerging countries.

Seminar for Engineers on Off-grid Photovoltaic Systems

Course description:

This course covers all the main aspects of the design, installation, maintenance and management of off-grid PV systems, the range of applications suitable for off-grid PV, as well as the main important non-technical issues (project management, calculation of profitability, marketing and financing). The course combines theory with practical exercises in the PV training centre.


* Overview of renewable energy technologies

* Range of solar electric systems

* Applications and case studies

* Solar modules

* System components (controllers, inverters, batteries etc.)

* System installation and commissioning

* System design and sizing

* Practical exercises in system assembly

* Non-technical issues


* To provide a comprehensive and detailed overview of the design, installation and management of off-grid PV systems.

* To provide a comprehensive and detailed overview of commercially available PV off-grid system components such as PV modules, charge controllers, inverters, batteries and DC appliances.

* To provide practical hands-on experience of the assembly, testing and commissioning of off-grid PV systems in a workshop setting.

* Familiarise course participants with the main non-technical issues associated with the planning and management off-grid PV projects.
