A: Optimization Model for Multiple Energy Resources, by HOMER Energy, USA.
The HOMER (Hybrid Optimization Model for Multiple Energy Resources) Pro software simulates and optimizes the design of hybrid power systems. It analyzes a wide variety of possible system designs to find the least cost system that meets the site’s load requirements given its local resources and prices. The training workshop will begin with an introduction to HOMER covering the fundamental concepts of the HOMER software. Participants will leave with an understanding of the interface and modular design. They will also work simple modeling projects from beginning to end and interpret the results. Participants will learn how HOMER calculates the technical feasibility, economic value, and other metrics of different designs through its powerful sensitivity analyses and its ability to simulate and optimize thousands of system designs in minutes.
B: Energy Management Systems, by United Nations Industrial Development Organisation, Austria.
This ½ day Awareness workshop is an introduction to the topic of energy management systems and ISO 50001 for enterprises managers/engineers/consultants as well as to offer networking opportunities. The objective of this workshop is to raise awareness on energy efficiency and to encourage top managers to authorize their key staff to participate in the subsequent two-day Energy Management System User-Level training on energy management system implementation as well as to generate interest in the engineering consultancy sector.
C: Flexible Energy Systems, by FLEXIS Project, Cardiff University, UK.
This workshop aims to describe the progress of development of multi-energy systems in Wales and build international collaboration between researchers in Nigeria and UK. As this is hands-on training, the FLEXIS team from the UK would engage with other researchers and practitioners within the field of renewable energy and green environment, thus creating new opportunities with overseas institutions. Particular academic opportunities with Nigeria are through the funding opportunities of the £1.5B, 5-year RCUK Global Challenge Research Fund (http://www.rcuk.ac.uk/funding/gcrf/).
