Interest in Renewable Energy, especially Solar PV, is at an all time high. Ofgem figures show that by 19 November 2010, 15,468 installations had registered to participate in the FIT scheme, the vast majority of which were Solar PV.
This course will give you a background on Solar PV; from the types of systems, installation and running issues, to capabilities and limitations.
About the training course
This course provides an introduction to Solar PV and includes examples of how the FIT will affect payback. Different types of surface mounted and integrated Solar PV will be illustrated and their workings explained.
Theoretical and deliverable power outputs will be discussed and a rough sizing, costing and investment return (including the impact of the FIT) will be worked through.
What some of our past delegates have said about our courses:-
"Perfect introduction for an SMB looking to go into the Solar PV market"
"Good introduction to PV"
Who should attend
Home owners, Local Authority staff, Architects, Installers, Specifiers, Property Developers, Consultants, Housing Stock Managers and those who need, or want, to have a good understanding of Solar Photovoltaic will find this course very relevant.
