Advanced Training Sessions in Poland
University of Lublin, Partner at PVS IN BLOOM project has organized training sessions in 3 Polish citioes:
23-24.11.2010 and 15-16.12.2010 in Lublin,
24-25.11.2010 and 13-14.12.2010 in Wisznice and 09-10.12.2010 in Wroclaw.
The training was carried out according to the agreed procedure. Implemented the following issues:
Presentation of the training plan, Introduction to the PVs In Bloom, describe the role of "promoter photovoltaics, " The definition and concept of marginal areas, selection criteria for project PVs in Bloom, the strategic vision of the contribution of solar photovoltaic farms to sustainable development in Europe (for example, the strategic vision of the project document PVs In Bloom), Introduction to the technical vocabulary associated with photovoltaic power plants (sunshine, sunshine, etc.), description of the leading photovoltaic technologies,
Basic issues of photovoltaic power plants connected to the electricity transmission network (typologies of connections to the network, the isolation / separation of power, etc.), choice of technology because of the nature of the site (matching the technology of photovoltaic power plants due to the characteristics of marginal land), Scaling of solar power plants, Installation, testing and operation of photovoltaic farms, Foundations and tools for assessing the costs and payback time,
Useful information on the technical and administrative procedures for assessing environmental impacts of ground-based solar farms, more detailed analysis of procedures related to the specific marginal areas, procedures for connecting photovoltaic farms to the grid, Finding solutions for solar farms (grants, financing, leasing, mortgages, etc.), procedures for support PVPPs and profits for communities in this respect, financial guarantees,
The rules for creating business plan, key elements that should be taken into account when pricing the installation of photovoltaic of individual farms in marginal areas, example of counting the time of return of investment for power 100kWp under standard conditions for the region, profitability ratios, which should be presented during the evaluation of solar photovoltaic farms.
At the end of the training were given certificates of participation

University of Jaén has been selected to participate in Solar Decathlon 2012
Solar Decathlon Europe 2012 (SDE 2012) has selected the 20 teams participating in solar houses competition, making it more international, with universities from 15 countries and four continents.
For its part, the Project Manager of Solar Decathlon Europe, Sergio Vega, has ensured that the level of the proposed projects is "very high" and expects to forward the 2012 Solar Decathlon on the knowledge of efficient housing more quickly.
The participating teams will develop, within two years of competition, actual solar homes, as seen in June 2010 in Madrid, and demonstrate to the international market "that can compete with these technologies."
The aim of this international competition is to generate new knowledge and involve people in a more rational use of energy. It shows that is "possible and affordable to use buildings in more efficient way, avoiding lose of heat in winter and keep cool houses in summer and so use less heating and air conditioning. The project encourages also use of appliances that consume less and provide electric energy through renewable sources like the sun. "
