In our course, you will become familiar with the basic concepts of renewable energy. Get an idea about the basics of determining the potential of renewable energy resources, including its territorial, temporal and climatic variability.

About

We paid great attention to the study of modern technologies for converting solar, wind and hydropower, as well as to operating modes of power plants based on renewables in power supply systems for autonomous and grid consumers. Within the framework of the concept of sustainable development, analysis and quantitative comparison of the environmental impacts of organic, nuclear and renewable energy is carried out. The use of design, financial and economic management tools, taking into account the development of innovative technologies for creating renewable energy equipment, allows to optimize the parameters and increase the efficiency of projects.

The course contains a large number of practical tasks to consolidate the acquired knowledge and skills in the field of using renewable energy sources.
