Don’t miss the EAC Regional Training Course on Course on Development, Design, Installation and Operation of Small Hydro power Plants

The East African Centre of Excellence for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (EACREEE) in collaboration with Uganda National Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Alliance (UNREEEA)   and the Centre for Research in Energy and Energy Conservation (CREEC), supported by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) is organizing an EAC Regional Training Course on Course on Development, Design, Installation and Operation of Small Hydro power Plants scheduled to take place at CREEC within Makerere University, in Kampala, Uganda  from 29 September 2019 – 4 October 2019. The course aims at equipping participants with relevant technical skills and experience in planning, designing, developing, and operation of small hydro power plants. This is inherently expected to increase the regional generating capacity of hydro power and thereby accelerating rural access to electrical energy which can be efficiently sustained with competent human resource capital. The training course consists of lectures and practical sessions on design and installation, operation and Maintenance of small hydro power Systems. The training will involve lectures, practical lessons and field visits that would provide content on hydro design, project development process, quality control and assurance, electro-mechanical equipment, as well as operation and maintenance of a hydro power plant. The target participants are operators and maintenance technicians as well as hydro power developers working in small hydro power plants. They must have technical backgrounds in areas like mechanics, electricians, etc. The participants must be nominated by their employers using the Training Course Nomination Form attached HERE.  There will be no tuition fees charged. However, each participant will make self-arrangements for travel and accommodation during the training course. The organizers will provide lunches and coffee breaks during the training course. Applicants should complete the standard EACREEE application form for training courses and submit by E-Mail to info@eacreee.org copied to info@creec.or.ug . The applications must be endorsed by the employer. The deadline for the applications is 13th August, 2019. Nominations received after that date will not be considered.
