Off-Grid Renewable Energy
This two day course is designed as an introduction to practical off-grid living. The course is split into four main areas including the following:
Energy acquisition - This involves the use of solar, micro-hydro, wind turbines and other technologies to acquire the renewable forms of energy around us.
Energy conversion - Some forms of energy acquired will require conversion to be useful to their application. This might be by use of a generator for example.
Energy storage - Ways in which you can store your power for later use
Energy application How best to make efficient use of your power. This will include energy efficiency, inverters for mains appliances and converting appliances to 12v.
By the end of the course you should have enough knowledge to set up a basic 12v off-grid renewable energy system.
This course is suitable for those wishing to live off-grid whether that is for environmental reasons, practical reasons, or preparing for a future where we can not rely on power from the grid. This course is not suitable for those wishing to supplement their grid connection with renewable energy sources unless they are considering running an independent system.
