This online course is delivered by Global Sustainable Energy Solutions, an Australian leader in renewable energy engineering, training and consultancy specialising in photovoltaic technology.
By utilising solar energy, individuals and businesses can become less reliant on ‘the grid’. However, a connection to the electricity network is often beneficial or even required.
The course teaches the theory necessary to design a grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) system with battery storage that meets the requirements of the electricity network area.
The course is eligible for 60 Clean Energy Council Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points and has been prepared and mapped against draft unit UEERE5001A* (Design Battery Storage Systems for Grid Connected Photovoltaic Systems).
It is anticipated that this course will form part of an Accreditation credential from the Clean Energy Council for designing and installing grid connected PV systems with battery storage. This will be based on the engineer applicant having already successfully completed the Online Training on Design of Photovoltaic Systems course or similar (i.e. units UEENEEK125A and UEENEEK135A).
* These unit codes may change following final approval.
This course is for anyone who has completed the Online Training on Design of Photovoltaic Systems course. It assumes knowledge gained through this course or similarly based units UEENEEK125A and UEENEK135A.
If you’re part of an engineering team involved in the design of grid-connected power supply systems with battery storage, this course is for you.
It will be particularly useful for electrical engineers, electronics engineers or any other engineer who has completed electrical-based studies.
Engineers holding accreditation through the Clean Energy Council requiring Professional Development (CPD) points will also find the course beneficial.
Global Sustainable Energy Solutions (GSES) is an Australian based renewable energy engineering, consultancy and training organisation, undertaking projects in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Africa and the Pacific Islands.
Established in 1998, GSES has a diverse portfolio, and is experienced in system engineering, design, audit and education for both government and private enterprise. Their expertise covers both on grid and off grid renewable energy resources and commercial aspects of RE technology systems and power supplies.
The course is delivered online and takes approximately 40 hours to complete. After registering online, access will be provided to the online teaching material. Participants can complete the course at their own pace. Tutors are available for additional help either by phone, email or in person.
