Energy Systems Integration is a unique, online learning experience. Delivered by InnoEnergy (one of Europe’s foremost authorities in sustainable energy education) and ESIG (the leading source of global expertise for energy systems integration and operations in the United States), this collection of online courses bridges the knowledge gaps between the critical disciplines in energy, empowering you to understand how they connect, how you can collaborate across areas of specialism, and how to expand existing business models and leverage new areas of expertise to deliver greater value.
This course explores the critical business, financial, policy and planning conditions that are needed to boost the deployment of off-grid renewable systems, particularly in the poorest countries and remotest communities. Our experts elaborate on market-based models for off-grid electricity, the financial dimensions of off-grid electricity initiatives; the relevant policy and regulatory frameworks, and energy planning from demand all the way through to supply.
As solar, wave, hydro and wind power, distributed and variable generation plants are increasingly integrated, it is becoming imperative to understand the technical challenges as well as the possibilities facing our power systems. This course gives you unparalleled insight into the fundamentals of power systems, from direct to alternating current, active to reactive power and more. You will explore frequency control, how active demand and storage can support the system and the future evolution of the electricity grid. And you will emerge with rock-solid understanding of the key issues at play.
In this course you will find out how off-grid renewable electricity systems can transform lives in poor and remote communities. You’ll assess the technical, social, policy and economic features of off-grid systems, and how projects can be successfully implemented to provide sustainable electricity in developing countries.
The world is facing an energy trilemma. How do we drive the transition to a cleaner, more sustainable energy system in a way that solves the triple challenges of decarbonisation, energy security and affordability? The answers lie in deploying new technologies and innovation within the energy system – but this deployment must be coordinated on multiple levels and with adequate government policy and regulation. This course gives you the inside track on the types of policy and regulation that governments can use to incentivise the sustainable energy transition – as well as the pitfalls authorities must learn to spot to avoid counter-intuitive outcomes.
We have reached a tipping point in sustainable energy. As we make the global transition to renewable and integrated energy systems, there is also an imperative to understand, anticipate and respond to a corollary of changes in the ways that households consume energy. Understanding your customer and their role in the global energy shift is critical in staying ahead of the market and future-proofing your organisation. This course gives you unparalleled insight into the fundamental behavioural changes that are key to successful energy systems integration. Delivered by InnoEnergy, one of Europe’s principal authorities in sustainable energy and energy education, the course draws deeply on the most recent energy-related research into environmental psychology.
