Distance Internet Education
on Renewable Energy Technology
DIERET education stopped as a training course in 2011.

The reason is that there is no funding for the work to make the course.
The DIERET was a freely available educational
program in the period of 1999-2010. There was a set
of questions to which the students had to answer after they
have read the study material. The answers
were evaluated by the Secretariat. The study course was running
in electronic form without any paper except that on which
the certificate was issued by INFORSE Secretariat to the
graduates of the course.
text material is still available:
The 300 pages of digital course material include 450 illustrations in five modules:
Why Renewables?; Solar Energy; Biomass Energy; Hydro Power; Wind Energy; Alternative
Fuels for Transportation (New in 2006), and Annex Chapters: Organizing and Policy
Making, and Units.
Attending the course was an opportunity for member
organisations to update their knowledge on the current state of renewable
technology and their utilization. The course also helped NGO members
use reliable arguments in campaigns and lobbying for sustainable energy
development as well as in advising people on how to use renewables. The
course was offered free.
