Renewable Energy

Thursday 19th of February 2015 saw the Renewable Energy Summit take place at the Crown Plaza Hotel in North Co. Dublin.  This event was very well attended and has a distinguished line up of speakers.

The key themes on the agenda include –

  • Government energy policy
  • Challenges facing the energy sector


    Solar Energy and Bio-fuels

  • Wind Energy and Moving to Marine power
  • The potential for biogas as an alternative fuel
  • Energy transition
  • Developing community energy projects
  • International best practice in developing renewable energy

This summit illustrates a continued firm commitment by the Government and Industry that there is a need to develop viable alternative sources of renewable energy in order to contribute successfully to the growing demand for energy in the modern economy.  Check out our earlier article in relation to Apple announcing their Data Centre in Athenry and Denmark being powered by renewable energy sources.

At Hi-Tech Training we see opportunities for skilled and certified individuals to move into jobs in this growing sector over the coming years. In response to this we have developed and offer a FETAC Certified course in Alternative Energy Technology.  Our practical “hands-on” course is designed to give participants an understanding of alternative energy options and provide them with that practical knowledge and skills to build solar to electric and wind to electric systems at a foundation level.  The course is designed to be of benefit to people either working or intending to work as:- Alternative Energy Installers or anyone just wishing to gain a practical knowledge of Practical Alternative Energy Systems. It is a fantastic way to gain insight into a growing industry and a new way of powering the future. View our course schedule for the next course dates and course fees.
