INTRODUCTION TO RENEWABLE ENERGY PROGRAMS

These modules are designed to provide developers, engineers, and investors in the renewable energy industry and sustainability solutions with wide-ranging and profound knowledge in technical, finance, and management to ensure successful implementation and operation of renewable energy systems in a competitive landscape with fossil fuels.


Renewable energy market and applications in the 21st century have gained considerable momentum, with high potential and very ambitious plans for ramping up new capacities worldwide. It has been and will continue to be impacted by significant economic, environmental, and technical challenges. However, capacity building and securing qualified human resources are essential factors for accelerated deployment and success of these technologies.

It has been and will continue to be impacted by significant economic, environmental, and technical challenges. However, capacity building and securing qualified human resources are essential factors for accelerated deployment and success of these technologies.

This program focuses on examining state-of-the-art and emerging renewable energy technologies and trends anticipated over the next few decades. Participants will receive a thorough grounding of existing technologies, novel developments and options, opportunities, risks, and likely achievements over this period. Practical applications and cases are frequently used along with participant exercises. Special attention is given to renewable energy-driven desalination technologies, with the main focus on solar desalination, solar cooling, solar power generation, waste management, and waste-to-energy. The main objective is to find a concrete base and provide enabling tools and expertise for participants to help achieve long-term success in the renewable energy industry and sustainable resources.


The intensive courses are aimed mainly at undergraduate and postgraduate students, engineers, professionals, researchers, and experts with technical interests to learn about the state the art of renewable energy and solar applications. The program covers the most important and cutting edge technologies for using renewable energy sources to drive small-scale industrial and utility scale systems covering a wide range of applications such as cooling and desalination processes, and introduces essential concepts for plausible coupling schemes.


The main focus is on technologies with advanced development levels, significant potentials, and a wide range of applications such as solar thermal systems and photovoltaic, concentrating solar power, and smart grids. Each course is implemented in self-contained modules spanning 20-25hours, including hands-on experience sessions.
