Event description
One day educational workshop for solar professionals looking to improve their knowledge of solar resource assessment and PV energy modeling

About this Event

Join us for a day of educational training, delivered by top experts from the Solargis team. This event will be packed with the latest insights and best practices on solar energy assessment. You will also learn about new Solargis online tools. It's also a good opportunity to network with industry peers whilst enjoying good food and refreshments.

The workshop is being held a day before the MENA New Energy conference. The venue is easily accessible since it is located in the centre of Dubai next to the airport.

The workshop is free to attend. Drinks, refreshments and lunch are included.

NOTE: We have limited seats available so we advise to sign up early.
