Africa´s Premier Training Institute on Solar Power offers its first training course “DGS Solar Power Designer grid-tied” in Egypt  from 21 to 23 December 2014 in Cairo.


maxx-solar academy is offering a world-class training on PV System design, in line with the know-how of the German DGS (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sonnenenergie – German Solar Enregy Society), and tailored to fit the Egyptian Market.

Join now and learn how to:

  • Perform site surveys,
  • Consult your customers to design the right PV system,
  • Design grid-tied PV system according the consumption patterns,
  • Select the system components, and auxiliaries,
  • Prepare a feasibility study and quotation for roof-top, grid-tied PV systems.

Why should I participate?

The Government of Egypt has ratified the feed-in tariff for grid-tied photovoltaic (PV) Systems. The PV market is thus moving towards finding technically and financially viable PV systems for various target groups.

This course is designed to equip engineers, designer, consultants, and project managers with both the information required and the line of thought necessary to technically design a profitable grid-tied PV system. The course will also educate participants on generating the evidence, be it a feasibility study and/or yield study. In addition, PV Project management shall be addressed.

The DGS master designer, Dr.-Ing. Matthias Klauss will be the trainer of this course. He has more than 10 years experience in the planning and construction of photovoltaic (PV) systems ranging in size from 1 kWp to 20 MWp. He is an authorised expert of PV systems and an accredited DGS trainer since 2008. He is also the president of the German RAL Quality Control Association for Solar Energy Systems and Vice-president of the DGS Thuringia
