The rising costs of electricity supply and risks of energy security is making renewable energy attractive, particularly solar photovoltaics (PV) as an alternative, environmentally friendly and reliable energy source.


Why is a Solar PV assessment important?

This course will show you how to conduct a feasibility study for residential and commercial solar PV solutions, including how to get initial costing and energy yields using modelling software and climate data.

The Terra Firma Solutions Renewable Energy Engineers have created this course based on their international experience and training in solar energy to give participants the knowledge to be able to give advice on project feasibility from energy yield to system costs.

    Louise Dowie, Environmental Scientist at WESSA

    I now have a better understanding of the process behind developing an environmental policy & strategy for a corporate company. The course was well worth my time & money and I look forward to putting into practice what I've learnt.

  • Testimonial
    Karlien de Bruin , GraySwan Investments

    The Carbon Footprint Analyst course was one of the best courses I have ever attended. The course was really practical and after the course you should be able to apply what was learnt. The lecturer also shared his knowledge and experience that he picked up while working in the field which added extra weight to the course material.

    I would just like to thank Terra Firma for a great Measurement and Verification course, this was possibly the best course that I have done.

    Great course which was well presented. Group discussions were insightful and the lecturer knew her subject very well.

  • Testimonial
    Edwin Makushu - Senior Ecopreneur, Food & Trees for Africa

    This course should be added as one of the core modules in high institutions' environmental qualifications. I plan to use the skills I learned to calculate and report on Carbon footprints of big industries in South Africa. Seeing that the carbon tax will be phased as from January 2016, every company will need a detailed report of its footprint.

    Shepherd Nkosi - Energy Manager, Transnet Port Terminals – HQ

    I attended the Energy Efficiency Management course through the NBI EELN programme. It was very enjoyable and of perfect duration. The facilitator knew is subject and I would definitely recommend it to others.

  • Testimonial
    Derik Dreyer - Energy Efficiency Champion, Anglo American

    Very good introduction to the intermediate calculations in energy management. Very interactive and good tools for managing energy for the future.
