Wigton training lab offers renewable energy course for executives 🗺

Wigton Windfarm at Rose Hill in south Manchester.

WIGTON Windfarm will hold a renewable energy workshop for senior energy industry executives at its renewable energy training lab in Rose Hill, Manchester, this Friday.


The one-day course has been designed to give participants a primer in renewable energy science and systems. The curriculum will cover hydro, wind and solar energy with an emphasis on photovoltaics. In addition to lectures and demonstrations, participants will also get hands-on experience through a series of practical lab exercises.


“Our objective is to build capacity among industry professionals by increasing their knowledge of both the science of renewable energy and its practical applications,” Earl Barrett, general manager of Wigton Windfarm, explained.

“Global trends point to an increasing emphasis on renewables for energy generation, and local energy entities can only benefit from having their executives increase their proficiency in the field to enhance their delivery of services in their primary disciplines,” he added.


The Wigton training lab was opened in 2016 as part of the company’s efforts to support the growth of Jamaica’s renewable energy industry by providing training and professional development opportunities for service providers, technicians, students, and other interested parties.


The workshop for executives is the first in a series of courses that the lab will offer throughout 2018. Upcoming training, Wigton said, will include a session on photovoltaics and fuel cells, scheduled for March 19 – 23, 2018, and an introduction to solar energy and technologies, building assessments and energy audits,which will run from April 16 – 20, 2018.
