A hybrid energy system combines multiple types of energy generation and/or storage or uses two or more kinds of fuel to power a generator. A hybrid energy system is a valuable method in the transition away from fossil fuel based economies. Particularly in the short term, while new technologies to better integrate renewable energy sources are still being developed, backing up renewable generation with conventional thermal electric production, can actually help expand the use of renewable energy sources.

Target Group

The course is open to but not limited to energy system designers, engineers and installers, project developers, vocational instructors, Vendors, O&M technicians, solar companies. 

Hybrid energy systems can capitalize on existing energy infrastructure and add components to help reduce costs, environmental impacts and system disruptions. Planning a hybrid electricity system has a market focus rather than a technology focus: the priority is to choose a mix of energy technologies that is the most efficient and reliable way to meet users’ needs.
