Farah Sheriff (RETScreen)
#SolarMOOC Lecture: PV Project Analysis with RETScreen – Thursday June 28, 2012
On Thursday June 28th, SolPowerPeople proudly welcomes Farah Sheriff, of the RETScreen Clean Energy Project Analysis development team to demonstrate how to use the RETScreen software for one of it’s many applications: photovoltaic system design. Farah will introduce potential issues faced by many regions of the world including Tibet, Botswana, Swaziland, Kenya, Finland, Canada, Morocco and Brazil and explain the different system design requirements that must be considered in these various atmospheres, climates, and social situations. Mrs. Sheriff will demonstrate the RETScreen software in action, and explain how it is used to evaluate a diverse range of energy efficiency potentials. Specific examples will be covered in solar PV system design using the RETScreen software program giving participants a firsthand view of the application and potential behind RETScreen analysis.
Interested individuals are encouraged to download this software for free from the photovoltaic portal of the RETScreen website:
