To ensure that your integrated power networks are able to sustainably and cost effectively meet national and regional demands for power, DNV GL has developed this training course to introduce participants to international best practices in generation and transmission planning. 

The training is based on the key aspects of integrated power system planning:
• policy and regulatory aspects
• technical aspects
• economic and financial aspects
• environmental and social aspects

The three-day course will start with an introduction to electricity markets and organisation. It will then study demand forecasting and provide an introduction to generation planning. The next two days will address generation planning in more detail, transmission planning, investment appraisal, economic and financial analysis and social and environmental aspects. Various tools will be introduced along with illustrative examples. During the interactive course, participants will be encouraged to actively participate in discussions and short exercises.

This training course is available on request. Location, duration and subjects can be adapted to your wishes. Please contact us for more information.
