Intensive RETScreen® Expert Courses

Download Toronto Training Flyer. May 1-2; $495

RETScreen® Expert, released by Natural Resources Canada in October 2016, is the latest version of the world’s leading clean energy management software. It performs feasibility analysis, which allows decision makers to quickly and inexpensively determine the technical and financial viability of potential renewable energy, energy efficiency and cogeneration projects. It is also useful for performance analysis, for building or system operators to understand the ongoing energy performance of their facilities through analysis of monitored data.

Synopsis:This intensive, two-day training session will provide hands-on instruction in the use of RETScreen Expert for both feasibility analysis and performance analysis. Participants will learn through case studies covering a range of renewable and energy efficiency projects (to be selected on the basis of participant interest). These may include:

  • residential, commercial, and utility-scale grid-tied PV systems
  • grid-tied wind or hydro projects
  • solar air and water heating
  • conventional power generation (e.g., steam turbines) possibly employing biomass
  • biomass combustion systems
  • lighting retrofit projects
  • building envelope improvements
  • building mechanical system improvements
  • other projects of interest to participants

Intepretation of RETScreen® outputs will be discussed for each case study, with particular emphasis on understanding the financial viability of the project in terms of profitability and quickness of return. Quantification of GHG emissions reductions will be covered.

Included:Participants will receive fully-functioning evaluation versions of the RETScreen® Expert software that will operate for a 90 day period. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Instructor:The courses will be taught by Michael Ross, who has been providing RETScreen® training for 15 years at locations across Canada as well as in the USA, France, South America, and Africa.
