11th MGA Session kicks off in RDC

The 11th Micro-Grid Academy session kicked off this morning for the first time in RDC, in collaboration with the Ministry of Energy of South Kivu, DRC, and in partnership with AVSI and EnGreen. In the framework of the project “Sustainable Energy Services for Rural DRC” funded by the Italian Ministry for Environment, Land and Sea Protection and the Congolese Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development, this high-level training course aims to strengthen the capacity of about 15 people from the Ministry of Energy – Bukavu and Kinshasa offices –, private sector and NGOs, to learn on the country’s energy situation and on the project lifecycle of a mini-grid, focusing on the barriers for mini-grid development and operations management.
