Development of solar heating education in Ireland
Over the last three years the Industry and Energy-division at the Danish Technological Institute has been the key player in the development of solar heating education in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
The training has been developed in collaboration with the Danish Energy Authority and the advisory consultancy company Action Renewables in Ireland.
The development of solar heating courses forms part of a larger project concerned with the implementation of renewable energy in Ireland. The courses are aimed at turning electrical fitters into certified solar heating fitters.
The Danish Technological Institute has been responsible for building up the training facilities at two training centres, developing course material and training the trainers at the centres. In order to be able to do this, the Institute’s employees have been certified by BPEC (Training) Ltd. in Edinburgh to train trainers at the centres in Northern Ireland.
