This program may be subject to alteration.

During the Rio02 Event, Courses, Workshops and Practicals will be offered on Energy Saving, Solar Energy Systems, Hybrid Systems and Security of Energy supply.

The lecturers are representing the state-of-the-art on the fields; the courses are held in Portuguese or English. All educational material (book, CD-ROM, Video) will be supplied; the duration is one day for theoretical courses (in the Blue and in the Red Saloon of Copacabana Palace) and one and a half days for the Practicals (at various locations in the State of Rio de Janeiro).

The price for each course is 160 Euro, including a coffee break and education materials.

Due to the transport, the large amount of materials required, and the smaller groups (max. 3 persons per instructor) an extra of 140 Euro is charged for participants of the practicals.

Each participant will receive a certification about its participation at the course and all education material (either in Portuguese or English language). While the courses are limited to 25 persons each (practicals: 12 persons), an early reservation for the courses is recommended.
