Interplay Learning to Provide Its Solar Training and Education Utilizing Virtual Reality and 3D Simulations to Global Sustainable Energy Solutions (GSES)

Australia’s leading education and training provider in the Renewable Energy Innovation and Technology Sector partners with the top global provider of online training for skilled trades utilizing Virtual Reality and 3D Simulations.

Interplay Learning, the leading provider of online training for skilled trades utilizing virtual reality (VR) and 3D simulations, today announced a partnership with Global Sustainable Energy Solutions (GSES). The Austin, Texas-based firm will provide its solar training and education utilizing state-of-the-art Virtual Reality and 3D simulations to GSES, a company that has decades of local and global experience undertaking projects in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Africa and the Pacific Islands. By implementing the cutting-edge technology developed by Interplay Learning, GSES will offer training courses which will include site survey, installation, commissioning and trouble-shooting processes.


"Our partnership with Interplay Learning allows us to take a massive step forward with the solar training courses we offer by utilizing Virtual Reality," said Geoff Stapleton, Managing Director at GSES. "It will exponentially benefit those who take our courses in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Africa and the Pacific Islands. Traditionally, we delivered courses online and face-to-face in various countries. Even if we had hundreds of trainers on staff, we could not achieve the penetration or benefits that Virtual Reality offers. This new partnership will allow us to expand our global reach and serve a worldwide market," concluded Stapleton.

"Interplay Learning is thrilled to partner with GSES as their multinational reach helps us impact the skilled trades gap globally," said Doug Donovan, CEO of Interplay Learning. "Our solutions allow GSES to deliver effective solar training using interactive video courses and 3D simulations created by top solar industry experts. Course materials are accessible by desktop, laptop, tablet, mobile phone, or VR-headset and provide an immersive learning experience for engagement and a field-like experience. It's a tremendous opportunity to elevate the learning process," stated Donovan.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
