    Certified Renewable Energy Specialist

    $2,395.00
    This Certified Renewable Energy Specialist course addresses the main characteristics of the emerging generation of technologies which will be employed to provide energy for the power grid over the next 20 years. This course covers solar energy in its various forms, such as photovoltaic, thermal and thermodynamic energy conversion, taking into account the various issues associated with the connection of these solar plants to the grid. We will also cover Wind technologies that are today in full development and the section of this course dedicated to wind technology describes the state of the art, taking into consideration the consequences of adding large quantities of this intermittent energy source into power grids, one of which may be wide disturbances.

Energy from the sea is also covered in the Certified Renewable Energy Specialist course, with a section on very small hydraulic plants which will become of increasing interest as fossil fuels become more and more expensive. The course continues with an analysis of geothermal energy along three lines: heat pumps, heat, and electric energy generation. Finally, the Renewable Energy Specialist needs to know about energy from biomass, which is also becoming of great interest due to the high cost of fossil fuels. In this section we cover a wide-ranging description of biofuels and biogas and we give special focus to sources of energy from word, as a substitute for gas or oil energy heating. This Certified Renewable Energy Specialist course is a must for anyone interested in moving into the field of green energy. This program includes the Certified Renewable Energy Specialist certification exam!
