Academy AG (RENAC)

celebrate its 10th anniversary. Since its founding in 2008, RENAC
has become an important and innovative provider of international

In 2008, Berthold Breid, RENAC’s founder and director, had the dream to
support the international development of green energy markets through
know-how transfer and exchange of expertise on renewable energy and
energy efficiency. “Knowledge is one of the key factors for the
sustainable development of clean and secure energy supplies”, said Mr.
Breid. “Through our activities, we aim at satisfying the increasing
demand for expertise throughout the public sector, private sector,
finance sector, and potential investors in the green energy markets.
Thanks to our participants, clients, partners, and, of course, the RENAC
team, this dream has been possible.”

economic aspects of renewable energy technologies for participants from
