This Nigerian-German initiative aims at disseminating knowledge on effective ‘plug & play’ power audit tools, their implementation and advanced power efficiency methods and measures. Also, the use of solar PV diesel hybrid power supply solutions is being introduced and spread among Nigerian energy professionals. The offered capacity building programme allows Nigerian energy advisors and professionals to approach small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and social facilities. Trained energy professionals will be able to advise their clients on verified solutions for saving energy and securing a stable energy supply beyond the power grid, by harvesting the abundant solar energy resource available in Nigeria.
Our trainings are dedicated to trainers at vocational centers, higher institutions and EPCs. The trainings will also focus on PV diesel hybrid systems, the next step for diversifying Nigeria’s power generation mix. Satisfaction survey reports on the first trainings carried out in Lagos during Nov/Dec 2017 are available in the download area.
