Renewable energies

The production of energy using renewable natural resources such as wind, sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat, etc., has gained much importance in recent years as it is an effective means of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The need for innovative technologies to make the grid smarter, engineers to design the systems, and technicians to service and maintain these technologies are in great demand.


Turnkey training solutions in renewable energy technologies

Festo Didactic offers a number of renewable energy training systems that can be used as stand-alone modules or as part of the larger Electric Power Technology Training Program, which provides a turnkey solution dealing with important aspects of the wide field of electrical energy.

Sturdy workstations, modules, and components ensure a prolonged service life in a demanding training laboratory environment.

We provide our customers with the ideal training program platform by allowing them to select the right modules and the right courseware to create the perfect learning path for their students.

Training solutions in renewable energies cover three areas of expertise:

See below for more detailed information.


Basic Renewable Energy Training System

  • In-depth coverage of basic renewable energy systems, while also covering the prerequisites for this field using the same equipment
