Masterclass Silver in the Principles of Renewable Energy


New four day, business focused training programme


Renewable Energy is major area of economic growth and policy relevance in the Middle East and internationally. This programme introduces delegates to the range of Renewable Energies and then focuses on wind and solar power, the two resources which have huge potential in the Middle East. Delivered by a world expert in this field, and fully supported by MDCI, the first programme will run in between the 5th-8th October 2016 based at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Bahrain.

Business Focused

The Masterclass White in Renewable Energy Programme is designed for business and industry delegates requiring an overview but with a detailed treatment of Wind and Solar power. It will also be useful to public sector and government delegates.
