Do I really need this course?

Whether the course makes sense for you depends strongly on your needs and on your previous knowledge. If you've never dealt with Solar Powered Irrigation before, the course is maybe not what you are looking for – the same might also be true if you are already an expert in configuring and installation of an SPIS. But if you would like to learn more about the EXCEL tools provided for planning in the «Energypedia Toolbox»  or if you are working in the institutional or financial sector, the course might be able to further develop your capacities.
