N.C. Solar Center Introduces Certificate In Renewable Energy Management


The North Carolina Solar Center has launched a new training offering – a Certificate in Renewable Energy Management (CREM) – and is now offering its Renewable Energy Technologies Diploma Series online.

The boom in the renewable energy industry has matured to involve more non-technical personnel who do not necessarily have a renewable energy background, the center explains. With tax credits and other incentives available, project development has become more competitive and complicated.

The CREM is a 40-hour hybrid program offered with both online and on-site components to maximize class communication and networking opportunities. Supported in part by Southern Energy Management and the U.S. Department of Energy's Solar Instructor Training Network, this non-credit certificate program will be offered from March to May.

According to the center, it is the only non-degree program of its kind in North America that includes topics to help develop commercial-scale projects. The program is also taught in alignment with the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) Task Analysis for PV Technical Sales.
