Marketing Text A survey has been carried out in order to investigate the trainig needs of the adaptable courses' content related to the desing and operation of HPSs-Hybrid Power Systems to Hungary
The training need of the target group has been investigated related to Hybrid Power systems.
The partnerhip used questionnaires on the importance of specific topics related to Hybrid Power Systems technology, design and operation in order to detect the training needs in Hungary.
The survey emphasized that Hungarian natural attributes are favourable for biomass utilization, geothermal energy and solar energy fields.
For developing alternative energy production systems course material and identifying the content elements, the level and structure of knowledge needed to match the requirements, economic and market potentials should be taken into account. Furthermore, the know-how should be adapted to the local and regional attributes. The biomass energetic use and utilization program should be the most developed and emphasized. Furthermore, it is highly essential to overview the whole range of product verticums and product cycles.
Geothermal system planning is of the same importance, the lack of relevant knowledge on the market is considerable.
Higher education and vocational education do not involve this field; therefore, basic level knowledge, related management issues, and the know-how transfer can be the first and short-term realistic educational goal.
The spread of solar energy in the public sector can be the highest volume, so by means of the courses the public can focus on basic environmental and economical interrelations, and also raise their awareness.
Hydro energy and wind energy utilization and planning is more covered by education and vocational education and training. But at the same time, the national economic importance and expected small growth means a more moderate knowledge demand from the target groups.
1. The technology designer level related PC know-how and identified basic skill needs can be connected to vocational education and training systems. Therefore, the HPS technology designer educational level can be equaled with higher education levels and forms, the target group is students of technical courses and different fields of professions such as: agriculture, waste management, economics. University degree holder experts can also form part of the target group.
2. The system planner level expects the candidates to understand alternative energy systems and their range of product-cycles, therefore beyond the first target group the energy planners, maintenance economists, logistics managers, finance managers, regional economics experts, municipality experts, politicians, public utility companies could be prioritised, because they can immediately use the acquired knowledge. Previous technical or mechanical studies are not required.
