The "Online Capacity Building Program on Sustainable Energy Solutions for Islands" workshop will take place from May 23rd to June 3rd.
This workshop is 100% online and follows an e-learning methodology providing the benefits and virtues of online training as a greater scope bringing knowledge to isolated and remote areas.
"The Online Capacity Building Program" has been conceived to respond to the urgent need for affordable training and certification programs on sustainable energy for islands facing the challenge of 100% renewable energy. This is done through the use of a solid program of nine online modules which describe and analyse, using a deep and technical approach, the following technologies and energy issues: Solar Photovoltaics, Solar Thermal and Ocean Energy technologies, Bioenergy, Energy Efficiency and Thermal Optimization in buildings, Minigrids and Energy Storage in Insular Power Systems, E-mobility and an overview on Energy, Climate Change Mitigation and Resilience in island regions.
The program is available free of charge and is disseminated by the ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE), the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE), the Pacific Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (PCREEE) and the SADC Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SACREEE). Currently, it is available in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
Developed under the umbrella of the Global Network of Regional Sustainable Energy Centres (GN-SEC) by the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), the Small Island Sustainable Energy and Climate Resilience Organisation (SIDS DOCK) and the Spanish Centre for Research in Energy, Environment and Technology (CIEMAT).
