congress WORKSHOPS:      

During the 17th World Renewable Energy Congress, an IET related dedicated workshop will be organized.  This is not a profitable workshop event. The registration fees will cover only the cost of running such a specialized workshop.  These workshops are associated with the main theme of the congress (energy security, sustainability , and clean environment).   Workshop details, that running offsite (during the conference) should be booked directly with the organizers.   More details about the workshops, duration, speakers,  workshops programs, .. et. al. will be posted and updated here over this page soon.   The name and the contact of the person coordinating the workshops :  Dr. Ebrahim Mattar  (Email: ebmattar@uob.edu.bh), as more details are given below.

 

WORKSHOP Course  [part1 & part2]:  IET Related workshop:
Distinguished  WORKSHOP:  
Photovoltaic and Wind Renewable Energy Systems:  Principles, Design, and Regulations.


The present course will expose its attendees to the needed material to understand the background of two renewable energy resources namely: Solar and Wind Energy systems. The course compiles and incorporates the two previous resources with other additional power systems components to come up with a ready, compact and clean energy supplier. The course will guide the attendees to the different phases of sizing renewable energy systems to fulfill certain consumers with their energy demand/requirement. Case studies will be illustrated in this context.

The wind and solar energy systems technology capital costs and their operation and maintenance costs have declined by a large percentage. Also, their availability factors have jointly contributed to the decline of the wind and solar energy electricity cost. Such cost is highly competitive with the energy cost of the conventional power technologies. The two previous facts have encouraged energy users to consider solar and wind energy resources in being in the top list of renewable energy resources.    Download this file   Workshop PDF file.  

 

 

WORKSHOP THEME

 

WORKSHOP Introduction: 

In the past few years, Renewable Energy had a significant share of the total global energy production, with a forecast that this will increase reaching 31% in 2035. In 2015 the total installed wind and solar technologies reached 50% of the total installed capacity including fossil fuel, with a global investment reached $270 billion for these two technologies only. With global energy demand are projected to be shifting toward the developing countries, mainly, China, India and Middle East. The decision that those countries will make, either in term of policies to regulate the energy investment or decisions on the type of energy resources used to supply the growth in their energy need, will impact the global energy landscape in the coming years.  

 

Although there are a great enthusiasm and efforts to encourage the introduction of  Renewable Energy in the Arabian Gulf region, the current available skills and infrastructure constrain the region from achieving ambitious targets that will secure their position in the global Renewable Energy Landscape. These challenges can be addressed by providing the necessary training to equip the regional market with qualified human resources that will lead the region toward more sustainable energy sources, such as the wind and solar energy.

 

The wind and solar energy systems technology capital costs and their operation and maintenance costs have declined by a large percentage. Also, their availability  factors have jointly contributed to the decline of the wind and solar energy electricity cost.    Such cost is highly competitive with the energy cost of the conventional power technologies.  The two previous facts have encouraged energy users to consider solar and wind energy resources in being in the top list of renewable energy resources.

 

This workshop, which will run for three days will provide the participants with an opportunity to be trained by specialists from one of eight accredited renewable energy laboratories in the world and academics from University of Bahrain who worked closely with assessing Bahrain renewable energy resources and investigated the potential for implantation. The workshop is a great opportunity for electrical power utilities, environmentalists, energy managers, companies and individuals interested in renewable energy to understand two of the primary renewable energy resources for the GCC region in general.
