After a very successful workshop held in Pretoria on 17 Jan 2018, and subsequent meetings, the SAWEP program is moving ahead with identifying training and skills needs in wind energy, with a few interventions being shortlisted as possible program beneficiaries, namely:
- Technical training and support to semi-skilled and locally located beneficiaries, especially in the context of Bid Window Round 4 (BWR4)
- SED: Support for living costs and internship support
- ED: Supplier development and SMME support in BWR4 communities
- And Support and training for Trusts / Trustees
The final report to the program is due in March of 2018, and we look forward to rolling out this program in partnership with SANEDI, the Department of Energy and the UNDP.
