Course Summary

Commercially competitive prices for solar Photovoltaic (PV) projects have sparked a jump in the share of this renewable energy source in power sectors worldwide. Asian countries, especially China, India, Thailand and Japan have made considerable progress in expanding the role of renewables in their energy supply systems with solar PV projects accounting for a significant percentage of the growth in non-hydro renewable projects


Course Objective

At the end of the programme, participants will:

  • Better manage the financial aspects of a solar project
  • Draw comparsions between solar and other power generators
  • Equiped with the knowledge of technical challenges in a solar project
