Gilberto Nunez

Solar Energy 101 is a great online resource for anyone who wants to learn more about solar energy. The videos are well-produced and cover many topics and the instructor is an expert in this subject. I learned a lot just by watching the videos and I feel very confident about starting my own solar project.

I have been a residential solar installer for about four years now and recently I started this online course. It has been great because it is so easy to navigate and the information is extensive. I find myself learning things every day that was not taught in my apprenticeship.

I would like to say that even though I am not an engineer, I am really glad that I took this. The course helped me to dissect and visualize some of the terms and concepts that were not tangible to me prior to this course

Dr Abubakar Sani Hassan, PhD, MIET, and MIEEE

Dr Abubakar Sani Hassan is an Electrical Engineer with research and industry-based experience in Electrical Energy Systems and optimization of distributed energy systems. He earned a BEng in Electrical Engineering from the Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Nigeria. He went on to obtain a master's degree (Distinction) in Energy Systems Engineering from the University of Glamorgan (now University of South Wales, United Kingdom). During his MSc, he worked on his thesis in conjunction with the University of Glamorgan's Baglan hydrogen centre. The key theme of his MSc thesis is the modelling and simulation of a standalone solar-powered hydrogen production system. He has a PhD, and as part of his PhD research at the Institute of Energy, Cardiff School of Engineering Abubakar has worked as a research affiliate at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, California, USA, for two months interfacing energy planning tools with low voltage network models. Dr Abubakar's projects have always involved several problem formulations and using optimization techniques to optimally find the best schedules for distributed energy resources based on the constraints (physical limitations) defining such systems.
