As the usage of energy increases it is imperative that businesses seek green energy sources. With this training program we will explore alternative energy sources and ways to help conserve, reduce, reuse, recycle, and minimize the impact on our planet. We will examine the history of sustainability practices and challenges that we currently face. This program will address the main characteristics of the emerging generation of technologies which will be employed to provide energy for the power grid over the next 20 years. This program covers solar energy in its various forms, such as photovoltaic, thermal and thermodynamic energy conversion, taking into account the various issues associated with the connection of these solar plants to the grid.
