ENERGY EXPERTS HOLD SOLAR POWER WORKSHOP IN KNUST

By Oppong Marfo Edward


The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) is hosting a 3- day International Solar Energy Workshop to equip Solar Energy experts across the world with more knowledge.

As renewable energy technologies play an important role in meeting current energy challenges, The Energy Centre (TEC) at KNUST and the International Institute for Water and Environmental Engineering (2iE) in Burkina Faso came up with a Solar Energy Capacity Upgrading Project (SolarCUP) with the support of the World Bank's Africa Renewable Energy Access Program (AFREA) through the clean Investment Framework Multi Donor Trust Fund to help solve the energy crisis in Africa.

The aim of the SolarCUP project is to help position the two institutions (KNUST and 2iE) to become capacity building nodes for Ecowas Regional Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency.

The workshop which ended on Thursday, May 31, seeks to present some lessons from the implementation of the SolarCUP project and also helps to create new linkages among Renewable Energy Experts across the world.

Dr. Yao Azoumah, Coordinator of the SolarCUP project at the (2iE) and Mr. David Quansah, the Coordinator of the SolarCUP project in KNUST guided participants and educated them about the weaknesses and the success of the project.

Some of the participants interviewed said attending the workshop is an avenue for them to broaden horizon on issues that relate to Solar Energy.
