This certificate addresses the microgrid and the penetration of alternative energy systems (Distributed Energy Resources - DERs) into the legacy power grid and the humanitarian/sustainable evolution in developing countries where microgrids may leap-frog grid-deployment itself. Two of the four required courses are sustainability-focused (Power Electronics and Smart Grids; Renewable Energy Generation) and a third course is sustainability-inclusive (Electric Machines and Vehicles).
