Renewable Energy Specialists (RES) II Project

Background

Embrace was the lead partner of its RES I project from 2009 – 2011 which led to the transfer of a renewable energy training scheme from Austria/ Germany in the following areas/ technologies:

  • Basics of electrical engineering within renewables
  • Basics of plumbing within renewables
  • Solar PV (Theory/ Practical)
  • Solar Thermal (Theory/ Practical)
  • Heat Pumps (Theory/ Practical)
  • Software Applications (Theory & Practical)

Activities

Embrace is now transferring the above courses, focusing on Solar PV & Solar Thermal to Turkey (EGE University and partners). We will adapt the training materials to suit current needs (to feature latest developments in the field) and will then pilot the courses together with the Austrian Institute of Technology with Pilot Groups in Turkey. Embrace wills end trainers to train Turkish vocational professionals (local trainers at colleges/ universities).
