Solar PV feasibility assessment

Renewable energy is now seen as a way to reduce costs and increase organisational efficiency. Feasibility assessments ensure costs and complexity are highlighted upfront so clients and organisations aren’t on the back foot.

The course shows participants how to obtain an initial costing, calculate the energy yield and create a viable financial model. It also explains solar PV systems and the legislative framework.

The rising costs of electricity supplied by Eskom and Local Municipalities is making renewable energy investments, particularly solar photovoltaic’s increasingly attractive investments. The engineering behind such projects is often costly and complicated leading to reluctance for initial studies into the feasibility of such projects. By first conducting feasibility study into solar projects, much of the mystery is removed and attractive investments are often found. This course is a hands on practical course that shows how to conduct a feasibility study for these technologies, including how to get an initial cost, energy yield and financial model using modelling software and climate data.
