Even though the basic concept involves active solar energy, which uses mechanical devices in the collection, storage, and distribution of solar energy, the process requires to be thoroughly understood.At AbleSkills Renewable Energy Centre, two of the key renewable energy courses taught are solar PV courses and solar courses. In addition, an useful 'primer' for those interested in working in the 'renewables' installation industry?
