The 2017 NorRen Summer School will combine lectures with site visits and group projects. It will take place in Sogn and Fjordane County, with the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences in Sogndal as its primary base. You will participate in a week-long interactive course that will provide you with a balance of educational insights and networking opportunities.

Tentative program 2017

The detailed and final schedule for this year’s course will be announced in late April but participants can expect that the programme will consist of:

  • Lectures from academics and other experts in the field
  • Excursions to energy related facilities such as large- and small-scale hydropower plants, a wind power plant, and grid and transformer stations
  • Interdisciplinary group projects

The programme for the upcoming NorRen Summer School will be based on the 2016 summer school session, with many of the same lectures and site visits. For more information about last year’s programme, please see our webpage.
