I have run a number of solar photovoltaic and off-grid power hands-on workshops and I recently ran another solar PV workshop with EWB Sheffield.

Engineers Without Borders UK (EWB-UK) is a student run organisation trying to connect engineers with the field of international development. They do this through placements, training and outreach programs.



Here are the slides and handouts from the day, along with some photos. It was a great turn out with 17 participants who built 4 small solar PV systems.

The slides are available here:

The solar PV worksheet is available here:

For additional information and further reading I would recommend  'Off-the-grid' by Duncan Keridge et al and 'A Practical Guide to Solar Photovoltaic Systems for Technicians' by Jean-Paul Louineau.

Thanks to all who attended. I hope you had fun and I've given you a bit of inspiration to get off-grid.
