Zero-energy buildings (ZEBs)Zero-energy buildings (ZEBs) usually use less energy than traditional buildings as well as generate their own energy on-site to use in the building. Many people in developing countries (and elsewhere) already live in zero-energy buildings.
Most buildings today use a lot of energy -- to keep the lights on, cool the air, heat water, and power personal devices. Even installing solar systems will not significantly counter the heavy energy load. There are, however, some buildings that strike a balance; or even tip the scales the other way! These are called zero energy buildings.
Upcoming - Zero Energy Building (ZEB)
Knowledge - These buildings are designed to reduce energy consumption through energy-efficient technologies and to generate energy through renewable sources such as solar panels, wind turbines, or geothermal systems. The ultimate goal is to have a net-zero energy balance, where the building produces enough energy to meet its own energy demands.
Course for: Civil Engineer, Building Architect, Building Advisor, Solar professionals and Building owners.

Solar Project Design Master Course
Admission going on for Jul-2023
The current project is focused on the design a large-scale PV solar power plant. To make the design it is carried out a methodology for the calculation of the different
parameters required for the realization of a project of this nature. Subsequently, the different parameters
obtained are compared with parameters obtained in literature and with the parameters obtained by means
of specialized PV software.
Before implementing the design calculation methodology, the main components in a large-scale PV plant are described: PV modules, mounting structures, solar inverters, transformers, switchgears and DC and AC cables. Furthermore, the following aspects are analysed in the current project: legislative and administrative procedures, renewable energy support schemes and environmental aspects associated with large-scale PV plants.
The calculation methodology is divided in: design calculations, energy calculations, economic calculations and evaluation parameters calculation.
Solar PV Design Job Summary
In most solar EPC/installation companies, design team is a critical element and hence most companies prefer to have an in-house design engineer. With the India Government’s impetus to achieve 200 GW of Solar Power by 2022, there will be a good amount of demand for Solar PV Design Engineers in the country.
A Solar PV Designer's job is mainly to design and develop site plans for solar panel installation. The Design Engineer takes the initial system concept ideas and translates them into fully detailed construction ready designs. Coordinating with multiple team members and customers, the Design Engineer balances the necessity of a customer solution with the efficiency of standard practices.
A typical Solar PV Designer's job will predominantly revolve around following three key responsibilities:
- Calculations & Design
- BOM Preparation
- Overseeing project execution
- Ability to design PV systems
- Has knowledge in PVSYST and AutoCAD
- Has knowledge in electrical design concepts
