LIFE Academy is happy to announce that we will arrange the new programme Uganda Capacity Development Programme on Renewable Energy from April 2022 – January 2023. The main objective of the programme is to contribute to strengthening the conditions for investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency, with in-depth technical skills to provide modern and sustainable energy systems in Uganda.
Closing date for application is March 21, 2022.
The target group is mid-level or high-level managers or decision makers working with Renewable Energy in Uganda. Targeted organisations are ministries/departments, agencies/utilities, regulators, regional actors, CSO’s and national public and/or private financial actors. 25 participants will be selected to the programme.
More about the Programme Objectives
The programme will include all forms of renewable energy such as solar, wind, hydro, bio (including waste-to-energy) and geothermal energy. The Renewable Energy Programme is thus expected to contribute to poverty reduction through increased access to affordable and reliable renewable energy and access to electricity for people living in poverty.
The Capacity Development Programme on Renewable Energy aims at creating increased knowledge and
capacity of selected organisations and participants about how different energy system solutions based on
renewable energy can be developed at different levels in society, from local communities without network
connections to larger plants at national macro level.
The participants will share knowledge and networks and work together in teams to develop and implement a Change Project that will support change processes within the participants own organisations and areas of activity.
