The Micro-Grid Academy is a regional capacity building platform that provides theoretical and practical training on energy access and decentralized renewable energy solutions to young African and international technicians, entrepreneurs and engineers. The project aims to enhance access to energy in rural communities fostering local enterprise and job creation, while positively impacting health and education services, female empowerment, climate change mitigation, reliable water and food production and energy security, in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Usually based in Nairobi, Kenya, it started holding on Tour sessions, the first of which was held in Lusaka just before the RES4Africa Program Launch in Zambia.
