  3. 3. INTRODUCTION: GLOBAL RENEWABLE ENERGY IS A GO! • All signs point to an exciting new era of global growth for clean, renewable energy. In Canada, recent changes in policies, both federal and provincial levels, are creating the most favourable conditions in a decade for new development. As costs fall, many countries are now getting serious about renewable energy, which in addition to protecting the climate, preserve water resources and save billions of dollar in energy and health costs. This is creating a big demand for an educated and skilled workforce, in project development, construction and maintenance services, and small business. • In Canada, many high quality college and university programs and courses in clean energy are available. This digital field-guide will show you exactly where they are, what they offer, and how to get started. It includes sections for workshops and industry training courses, information for those studying abroad, plus an interactive map of Canada that pin-points all post-secondary programs. As a bonus, we highlight 10 online training resources worldwide.

  4. 4. STUDYING IN CANADA You will need a letter of acceptance from a Designated Learning Institution. Find out which schools are DLI’s on this CDN government database You have enough funds to cover your tuition, books, and cost-of-living while at school, as well as your return trip to your home country That you do not have a criminal record, nor pose any risk to Canada or Canadians To be in generally good health, and be willing to complete a medical exam if requested You fully intend to leave Canada as required by the timeframe allowed by your study Visa or permit Note, a study permit is not required if you intend to take a program that is six months or less in duration What to Know Before You Go: Are You Eligible?
  5. 5. RENEWABLE ENERGY; THE SUITE OF 7 • Solar Energy Solar is currently the world’s market leader in clean energy, in terms of rate of capacity growth, cost declines, and versatility. From single modules used to power LED lights or water pumps in the developing world, to massive multi-acre power plants, to thermal systems for heating water and air, the wide range of practical uses for solar energy assures it a key and growing role in the world’s new green energy mix. The Canadian Solar Industries Association www.cansia.ca • Wind Energy Where solar power is more widely applied for distributed uses, wind power technology established itself as the utility- scale market leader. Beginning in about 2005, the worldwide demand for wind turbines grew at an average of 30% a year. Today, over 70GW (70,000 MW) of wind energy is installed world-wide, including an impressive new offshore wind power industry in Europe. Canadian Wind Energy Assoc. www.canwea.ca • Hydro Traditionally, hydro power has been the dominant source of renewable power generation, worldwide. Though large scale dams with massive turbines are not considered renewable, smaller, “run-of- river” structures, are, as they only divert a portion of the river’s flow through a power- house, then return that water to the river or creek. International Hydropower Association www.hydropower.org
  6. 6. • Ocean Energy The power of tides and wave- action have also been successfully harnessed, and the exciting field of ocean energy needs more innovative minds, investors and entrepreneurs to help it mature and become an effective force for renewable energy in coastal environments. Marine Renewables Canada www.marinerenewables.ca • Bio-Energy From wood pellets to algae-based biofuels, the field of bio-energy is very broad, with numerous energy feed-stocks and applications for use. To be sustainable, bio-energy should be sourced from wastes, grown on marginal land, or combined with a secondary benefit, such as animal feed products. IEA Bioenergy www.ieabioenergy.com • Geothermal The power potential of deep geothermal energy is truly impressive, but is still at the beginnings of its growth cycle. Its major advantage over wind and solar is the ability to be a stable source of 24/7 “baseload” power supply. The best sites are grouped around the Pacific “Ring of Fire”, from British Columbia to southern Asia. The Canadian Geothermal Energy Association www.cangea.ca
  7. 7. • Energy Efficiency In a number of ways, Energy Efficiency or “Demand Side Management” is the most important renewable energy. As society progressed through the twentieth century, the era of “cheap energy”, it became increasingly wasteful. Using a combination of high tech and old time- tested methods, many opportunities for using energy more intelligently are being put into action, from electricity to transportation. The Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance www.energyefficiency.org THE INTERNATIONAL RENEWABLE ENERGY AGENCY (IRENA) IRENA was established in 2013, to provide a unified global platform to assess and enable the growing development of renewable energy. From labour market statistics, to government policies, to natural resources maps and much more, IRENA exists to provide answers to the World’s questions about what it will take to massively scale up renewable energy across the global economy. www.IRENA.org

  10. 10. CAREER CASE 1: AMY “My interest in working in renewable energy was sparked while I was attending Dalhousie University working towards my degree in Environmental Engineering. After graduating, I reached out to connections I had made through my co-op placement. I am now a Professional Development Engineer with Natural Forces. I help a small team find sites, apply for permitting, conduct stakeholder consultation, assess environmental impacts and get the project ready for construction My degree helped me gain knowledge of the importance of using renewable sources of energy but also it helped me understand how we can achieve this through technological advances. It helped me gain critical analysis skills which I use every day while assessing new sites, technical documents or while reading new research findings, and it helped me learn problem solving skills in group settings which are essential while working on a development team for large scale projects such as wind farms.”
  11. 11. COLLEGE, UNIVERSITY Holland College Wind Turbine Technician Prince Edward Island is establishing itself to be one of the most progressive renewable energy leaders in North America. Training for a Wind Energy program requires cross-training in relevant trades that are also offered at Holland College. The program’s location on the Summerside Waterfront Campus is ideal because of its proximity to the Wind Energy Institute of Canada site at North Cape, and to a number of wind farms. This program is a licensed BZEE training partner. BZEE stands for Bildungszentrum für Erneuerbare Energien, which is German for “Training Centre for Renewable Energy”. Key Facts:  Start Date: September  Length: 1 year  Location: Summerside Campus  Credential: Certificate More Information
