Providing Training for Integrating the Renewable Energy Networks for Supplying Electricity in Selected Newly Industrialised Countries and Developing Countries (RE Grid System)

As of: October 2018

Objective and activities

This project delivered knowledge on renewable energies and grid integration to countries in North Africa and the Middle East. The target group was specialists in key institutions in the private and public energy sector. In the project frame, training curricula were developed and courses on wind and solar energy organized. About 140 experts participated in study tours and workshops in Germany. More than 340 participants completed webinars with a certificate. 16 exhibitions with information on grid integration in English, French and Arabic were organized in project countries. The final workshop took place in Tunis in October 2014.
