Phaesun Off-Grid News - April 2015

Phase two of AEEP: Solar cinemas for rural Ethiopia
In April 2015, the AEE-programme has kicked off its second round. Eight lecturers from the Ethiopian Arba Minch University are now undergoing a second intensive training course at the University of Neu-Ulm and will share their knowledge with students and entrepreneurs afterwards in their homeland from July on. Small solar systems which can be used as a means of income generation for microenterprises are in the focus here. The technical basics are conveyed by the technical team of Phaesun. In 2015, among other things, a mobile solar cinema and a PC training room are supposed to be realised and will be used in areas without grid in the south of Ethiopia in cooperation with local entrepreneurs.
Together with the University of Neu-Ulm and the University of Arba Minch, Phaesun initiated the AEEP (Applied Education and Entrepreneurship Programme) in December 2013 aiming at the introduction of a new study course at the South-Ethiopian university and the development of small business models with the help of solar technology. The project is supported by the DAAD and co-financed with funds of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Pictures of the first project round and of the training in Germany in April 2015 can be found on the Phaesun Facebook-page here.

Market potential for PV systems in West Africa

The use of renewable energies in Western Africa was in the focus at the first "Solar & Off-Grid Renewables West Africa Conference and Exhibition" on 21./22. April 2015 in Accra/Ghana. Positive developments in Nigeria and Senegal, the financing of regional solar projects, as well as the opportunities of foreign suppliers on the market were the topics to be debated. Representatives of governmental organisations, local solar pioneers and international market players took part in these discussions. Michel Mansard, Managing Director of Phaesun France and Serge Coulibaly of the Phaesun representation in Ivory Coast reported about their experiences with solar projects in the region.
