Overview Renewables, especially solar and wind, are expanding rapidly overtaking conventional power generation technologies globally. This short course provides a practical introduction to all aspects of planning and deploying grid-connected renewable projects.

The power grid is an interconnected system designed and operated to satisfy the demand for electricity at all times, no matter how demand is changing (up or down; slowly or very quickly). Each power generation project, which is interconnected into the power grid, affects the grid, and is affected by the grid. The relationship between the project and the power grid is essential for all stakeholders to understand (project planners, engineers, regulators, financiers, etc.).

The course is designed for professionals seeking to broaden their knowledge of renewable energy technology and the benefits and challenges of integration into the power grid. Experts in one or more aspects of the power system will enhance their understanding of the entire system and become better developers, investors, advisors, policy and decision makers, and educators.
