Introduction

Do you wish global warming potentials to escalate and affect our livelihoods? How can renewable energy reduce the carbon footprint and hence reduce the global warming potentials? The whole world is focusing on green energy, reduction of carbon footprint and reduction in global warming potential. Cleaner environment and sustainable smart grids and micro grids are the main stay of today’s electrical energy generation. Emerging economies are seriously looking into the optimization of renewable energy generation. Electricity storage and integration of renewables to the grids are gaining momentum in the electric power industries.

Renewable energy sources are sources of energy that is constantly replenished through natural processes. These resources are often also referred to as alternative or renewable energy, mainly because they are a fuel option that can replace conventional non-renewable fossil fuels. Technologies like solar and wind power are becoming more common across the globe, and are both examples of renewable energy sources. There are several ways to generate power from renewable sources. Distributed energy resources and other renewable energies are hydroelectricity, geothermal, tidal energy and biomass are rapidly gaining recognition in the generation of electricity.

This training course will highlight:

  • The need for renewable energy sustainability
  • Characteristics of solar power
  • Merits of wind turbines
  • Bulk storage of electrical energy
  • Integration of renewables to the grid and distributed energy resources

Objectives

By the end of this Energy Training Centre training course, participants will learn to:

  • Recognize the concepts of global warming potential and reduction of carbon footprints
  • Appreciate the various methods of green energy generation of electricity
  • Determine the solar, wind and hydro electricity
  • Understand the merits of bulk energy storage and distributed energy resources
  • Design the interconnection between renewables and the grid

Training Methodology

This Energy Training Centre course will ensure that participants will receive a thorough training on the subjects covered by the seminar outline with the instructor utilising a variety of proven adult learning teaching and facilitation techniques. Each seminar participant will receive a copy of the comprehensive seminar notes. The presenter will outline and discuss the topics using computer displays, videos and power point presentation.

The seminar is designed to have an interactive format to maximize delegate participation. Questions and answers are encouraged throughout and at the daily sessions. Needs-Based case-studies and examples will be discussed in problem solving workshop sessions. This gives participants the opportunity to discuss with other delegates and the presenter their specific problems and appropriate solutions.

Organisational Impact

Upon completion of the Energy Training Centre course the organizational impact would be:

  • Technical training and up-skilling to improve and realize the full potential of a competent workforce
  • Productivity increase through minimization of project time acceptance/design and testing
  • Identification for opportunities of improvements due to deep understanding of the various types of renewable energy generation of electricity
  • Networking of personnel with technology leaders and other engineers
  • Attitude change of workforce, as continuous follow up of new technologies and their up taking could otherwise create workforce with high resistance to change due to lack of understanding
  • Ensure safety practices are adhered when carrying out electrical installation activities

Personal Impact

On successful completion of this Energy Training Centre course delegate will be able to understand:

  • Recognize the importance of zero carbon emission and global warming potentials
  • Understand the principles of operation and construction of solar power generation
  • Appreciate the potentials of wind power via wind turbines
  • Be exposed to the new alternative energies like bio mass and geo thermal
  • Recognize the merits of energy storage and distributed energy resources
  • Comprehend the interconnection between the renewable energy and the grid utilizing the smart and micro grids
