The DGS Academy Berlin was founded by the DGS Berlin in early 2013. In addition to the work of the association the Academy pools the activities on technical and scientific congresses, conferences and workshops: Events
The courses offered by the DGS Academy Berlin are closely linked to those of the DGS SolarSchool Berlin. The SolarSchool presents basis courses about photovoltaic, solar thermal and energy efficiency, while the Academy offers advanced training courses for professionals. In order to do so, the academy may resort to the long lasting experience of the solar school teachers.
During the congresses and conferences, experts discuss special aspects of solar energy and make the results accessible to a wide audience.
The DGS Berlin cooperates with various partners to examine topics from the solar industry in a constructively and critically way and to find new solutions. Consequently the Academy emphasises the involvement of external experts through call for papers for each conference. Thus any suggestions can actively influence an event already during the preparation.
