Capacity Building

We help you to grow necessary knowledge with targeted workshops and courses.

What is the effect of renewables on my power grid? How do I increase their share? Which requirements should they fulfil? And how can they actually support the grid?

We help you to tackle these questions with targeted workshops and courses. With our worldwide experience we are able to provide you with insights from successful renewable grid integration in other countries while shaping the content just to your specific needs.

Our Customized Capacity Building Approach

Our goal is to identify the specific needs of the training participants in advance and create the optimized training program for your group. It is an Energynautics trademark to be flexible enough to adjust the trainings depending on the customer’s needs during the different planning phases for each training.

To create the optimal training program it is crucial to account for:
  • different power system structures and components
  • different experience with renewables connected to the power system
  • different legal and technical frameworks
  • different organizational structures (utilities, energy ministries and project developers)
  • different backgrounds by education, culture and experience.
Our approach in short:
  • Identify specific needs of the training participants in cooperation with customer
  • Create training content and topics in consultation with customer
  • Prepare customized training material
  • Conduct trainings online, in-house or at a venue chosen by the customer
  • Measure success of training e.g. in exams or assignments, multiple-choice tests or questionnaires

Types of Training


These trainings are directed to professionals with experiences in renewable energies that wish to enhance their technical and economical skill set in this field in order to become a trainer.

High-level Capacity Building Workshops:

These workshops are directed to individuals at management level. This workshop will allow them to get an overview of power system operation.

Trainings for Regulators:

These trainings are directed to professionals working for regulators. They address topics specifically crucial for regulation entities such as technical frameworks.

Training for Operators:

These trainings are directed to professionals working for operators. The participants will learn about power system planning and operation with detailed study cases.

Project + Training:

We have had very good experiences with combining project work and trainings in the past. If your company is interested in contracting Energynautics for a project e.g. a renewable integration study, it often makes sense to combine the project work with a training program – in this case with a focus on power system operation and planning with renewable energy.


These modules can be part of any kind of training program you choose.

  • Hands-on-Training: Give your participants the opportunity for some additional hands-on-training. Either integrate basic or advanced software training with state-of-the-art software (e.g. DIgSILENT PowerFactory) to give them a better understanding of how to model renewable power generation for power system operation and planning studies.
  • On-site Learning: We are happy to offer you training schedules that include site visits e.g. to TSOs in Germany, wind parks or other interesting sites for your customized training program.
