RETScreen® Expert, available from Natural Resources Canada, is a Clean Energy Management Software system for energy efficiency and renewable energy project feasibility analysis as well as ongoing energy performance analysis. It empowers professionals and decision-makers to rapidly identify, assess and optimize the technical and financial viability of potential clean energy projects. It also allows managers to easily measure and verify the actual performance of their facilities and helps find additional energy savings/production opportunities. Courses offered:

  • RETScreen® for renewable energy projects (2 hours): Through presentations and case studies, participants will see how RETScreen can be used to evaluate the technical and financial viability of proposed solar PV, wind, and other renewable energy projects.

  • RETScreen® for energy efficiency (2.5 hours): Participants will be exposed to new RETScreen facility archetypes, and will learn how to analyse monitored energy consumption data from existing facilities, e.g., to determine the impact of energy saving measures.

The courses will be taught by Michael Ross, who has been providing RETScreen training for 15 years in Canada, USA, France, South America, and Africa.
