Renewable Energy Courses & Workshops

Education is one of our focus points since the fundation. We believe that there are no more technological bariers for a society powered by renewables, but we are also aware that there is a massive need of education.

Our efforts are concentrated in providing high-quality education for motivated people. The table below shows some our current courses, but more are on the pipeline. Furthermore, tailored courses can be organized, if requested. Please see this page for requesting your own course.
