Do you wish to gain a comprehensive overview of renewable energy as a means for fostering resilience in your community, village, country or neighbourhood? Then we invite you to join the online programme Renewable Energies for Sustainable Development.

Access to energy is a prerequisite for economic and social development, as almost every type of productive activity needs energy as an input. With this course you will enhance your capacity as a change maker to take an informed decision on which renewable energy technologies will meet the specific needs of your country, communities, villages or neighbourhoods.

The programme is developed and delivered in a partnership between Gaia Education, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), the University of Strathclyde. We have now begun enrolling students, so be quick to book your place and learn from renewable experts in our global classroom.

This course offered in collaboration with Strathclyde University and UNITAR, aims to enhance the capacity of local decision makers, energy/sustainable development officers and other personnel to make an informed decision on which renewable energy technologies will meet their own needs or the needs of their countries, communities, villages or neighbourhoods. It provides an overview of clean, secure and sustainable technology options and offers insights into the management of renewable energy projects, from small scale, through to major projects.

By the end of the course the participant will be able to:

  • Determine how renewable energy technologies can help to drive sustainable development
  • Discuss the role that energy plays in advancing the Sustainable Development Goals
  • Explain the benefits and drawbacks associated with a range of sustainable technologies and how they may be integrated
  • Apply basic principles to determine the most appropriate renewable energy strategy in a given situation
  • Compare and assess different business models and their suitability for different energy solutions
  • Identify and use tools to overcome barriers achieving sustainable energy goals
  • Share best practices of their communities The course starts on 6th September 2017, for a period of 8 weeks. In order to get the full benefit of the course we suggest you should dedicate 5 hours a week to your study.
Fee information:
The course fee is £400 (GBP [Great Britain Pound])
