The SUNY Morrisville Renewable Energy Training Center (RETC) provides and hosts technical courses in renewable energy that address employer-identified skill gaps and needs. Over the past decade, the RETC has worked closely with employers, training providers, economic development partners, and K-12 schools to address long-term and short-term needs of New York State's renewable energy sector. These efforts have resulted in the development of comprehensive coursework (>20 renewable energy college courses) and two degree programs in Renewable Energy at SUNY Morrisville!
RETC short courses and college courses focus on a range of technical topics in renewable energy, including wind, solar, micro hydro, geothermal/heat pumps, bioenergy/biofuels, and tower climbing safety and rescue.
In addition to greatly improved facilities for college courses, our capacity to offer and host technical short courses/workshops will be enhanced with the completion of the new building in 2021-22.
