The second edition of training for ‘Integrated Solar Photovoltaic (PV) System Designer’ has been launched for the registration by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) Innovation Centre.
The training would focus on developing technical expertise in solar PV systems and plants, covering design methods, installation, testing, maintenance, and evaluating solar PV projects.
DEWA plays a major role in nation’s progress in technology and this initiative is a part of DEWA’s strategy to empower the youth and upgrade them with knowledge,skills, tools, and technologies to become active partners in the transition to sustainable energy.
The training is being carried out in collaboration with TUV Rheinland Academy and is slated to take place from 15 to 19 May at the Innovation Centre in the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.
