The week-long programme organized biannually is one of the many short course programmes ran by the Centre. It has been running for nine years. The first session for the year 2018 was held from the 8th to the 12th of January which saw a turnout of 20 participants. Only one course was ran for this session which was Solar Photovoltaic Technology. The Solar PV short courses programme aims at training and equipping Technicians, Engineers and students with the requisite basic skills in design, installation and maintenance of solar home systems. Participants had practical sessions geared at providing a hands-on appreciation of the theory lessons.
The second session of the week-long short course was organized from 21st to 25th May 2018. In this edition, Financial Modelling Analysis of renewable energy projects was facilitated concurrently with the solar PV training.
