Energy supply transported via central grids is sometimes interrupted or simply not available in remote regions. Thus, fuel operated generators are often used to fill the gap but their disadvantages are manifold: they are noisy, costly to maintain, they consume fossil fuels and are harmful for the environment. This Summer School aims to show how renewable energy can provide energy efficiently and reliably.
This Training Program consists of three one-week modules. In the first week basics and practice of photovoltaics are addressed. In Week 2 technologies for wind power generation are in the focus. Bioenergy technologies are considered both in theory and practice in week 3. The Training Program includes presentations, a workshop, excursions to renewable energy projects and sight-seeing tours of Berlin and of Potsdam. Participants can choose to attend one module, two modules or the entire Training Program.


The German Academy for Renewable Energy and Environmental Technology offers this Training Program in cooperation with SRH University Berlin, Germany.
