WISE organized a training programme on ‘Solar PV power plant designing and financial analysis’ in February 2013, with a view to boost capacity building and enhance knowledge of the fast-emerging grid-connected solar power generation sector.
The training programme involved theoretical sessions covering technical information on solar PV projects (including site-feasibility analysis) and practical, hands-on training on PV power plant designing and financial analysis using software like METEONORM, PV-Syst., and WISE’s own tool for financial analysis.
The participants included solar project developers and investors, solar equipment and component manufacturers, government officials from state nodal agencies, officials from power utilities of centre/states, solar energy consultants, academicians, students, etc. The participants were all praise for WISE for taking the initiative to train professionals in solar energy technology software and opined that more such training programmes should be held to cater to the increasing manpower requirement of the future.
