SRI in Mozambique – a great success
This past February our GREEN Solar Academy trainers held the Sunrise Off-grid intermediate course on 10-11 February in Maputo, Mozambique. The course itself was a wonderful success and has sparked our excitement for holding more courses in Mozambique in the future. The course was such a fantastic experience for both the trainers and participants that we are excited to hold more courses to meet the increased demand.
There was a great variety of participants from both private companies and interested individuals at the course in February. Some had never touched solar equipment before, while others were already established in the renewable energies market Mozambique. For these participants, the two-day intensive course met all their expectations.
There were many highlights from the course as well. One highlight was the practical component, which allowed for the participants to get to grips and experiment with solar equipment (like a solar panel or inverter). This practical experience helped to confirm the theoretical explanations the participants had received and expand their knowledge about solar PV.
Another highlight was the networking that occurred between the participants and even the trainers. With such a variety of participants present there was a wealth of knowledge to be shared and potential partnerships to be created. Many of the trainers felt that these connections would be beneficial not only for the personal growth of the participants but for their professional growth as well.
The subsequent networking also led to another highlight from the course, which was vigorous and educational debate. The discussion between the trainers and participants expanded past what was discussed in the course to topics that sparked dynamic discussion. Some of these topics were the possibility of cutting trees to avoid shading the panels, the Mozambican laws related to the use of renewable energy, the method of charging for electricity and the pay-back of an investment in solar energy.
These highlights are just some of the reasons GREEN Solar Academy and our partner Logos Indústrias Lda are excited about growing the solar PV industry in Mozambique and offering more courses to meet the increasing demand.
