A presentation area comprising an LCD display, and workstation computers at each teaching station equip GEEP for hands-on training to professionals in power engineering and renewable energy industries through short courses and workshops. Such courses can cater for various modern-day industry problems related to renewable energy, energy storage, power electronics and smart grid technologies.
Curtin experts in renewable energy and power engineering at GEEP are capable of providing consultations on building similar renewable energy parks in industry, at educational institutes such as universities, TAFE colleges and schools, and for social organisations and remote villages, as examples. Additionally, these experts can provide consultations on other renewable energy-related topics.
With a laboratory displaying the latest renewable energy technologies, GEEP’s uniqueness serves as a demonstration facility for the general public. Groups of students from high school, technical college and summer school, as well as representatives from social organisations, industry groups and visiting academics from Australia and overseas, have already visited or plan to visit GEEP, which is also expected to be one of the key attractions for future students of Curtin.
