The abundance of Renewable Energy sources in South Africa, coupled with skyrocketing energy prices has created an awakening giant in the form of small scale Renewable Energy harvesting. Many of these new technologies are becoming financially viable options for many businesses and private individuals.

Each course is offered intensively over a 5 day period and is accredited by the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) for Continuous Professional Development points.
