African Renewable Power Surge Faces Challenge: Too Few Workers



Saharan Africa in South Africa, more than 600 million people do not often get access to electricity, the renewable electricity grid is one of the fastest-growing energy sources, especially in remote and rural areas where many Africans live.

But there is a great challenge, experts say: untrained personnel who plan, install and maintain solar, wind and other clean energy systems.

Goma hungry power, for example, Democratic Republic of the Congo, "We have had a great challenge, we have been highly trained, above all in senior management," said Kweku Yankson, head of human resources in Africa, BBOXX, in 12 countries in Rwanda-Pakistani working offshore grids net company

Rwanda, however, made Yankson a talented young man, but he was trained in low energy technology.

In general, more than 16,000 people are registered in Saharan Africa in renewable energy, outside of South Africa, according to the Renewable Energy Renewable Energy (IRENA).

It's just 0.1% of the world's renewable energy manual, and less than the number of people working in the US wind turbines, IRENA said.

Renewable entrepreneurs and product editing, sales, marketing, finance, and intellectual property professionals demand an increasing demand.

4.5 million jobs

The Powering Jobs campaign was launched in Singapore in October 2013 with Singapore Offshore Renewable Energies, which aims to prepare a million people up to 2025 to meet the demands of renewable energy.

Power for All, using decentralized power and the effort sponsored by the Schneider Electric Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation will strive for Power for All to build skills in low-power countries, Gilles Vermot Desroches, director
Schneider's sustainable development.

The push is part of a wider external network, in line with the estimated 4.5 million jobs network related to the expansion of renewable energy sources, according to IRENA.

Sustainability is intended to provide universal access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy by 2030 with the goal of achieving sustainable global goals.

In Africa, India, more than 30,000 solar electric installers have been prepared in the last two years, what has been learned by force.

The country wants to prepare 50,000 total installers by 2022, according to the government of India.

In Africa, one of the main problems associated with the expansion of renewable power plants, the system needs to be built and operated in remote locations, because it can be more difficult to attract and retain employees, said BBOXX Yankson.

Additionally, even in some Rwandan countries (multinational corporations have been increasingly educated by many young people), "it has been the most profound challenge to find managers and experienced senior management managers and find top managers of finance," he said.

Kenya, said Yankson, costs a lot of difficulty: the talented talent is a high payer, the best Nairobi people's competition among companies and non-profit groups.

"The main limit we have made in Kenya has been the cost of talent," he said.

New leads

BBOXX has created an online learning platform offered by BBOXX Academy and offers professional courses. Emery Nzirabatinya is currently a research and development director at Nairobi, a US auditorium company. BBOXX has also begun a leader in the Kigali program, he said.

"The program is looking for strong university graduates with a rigorous and sustainable development and exposure program," said Nzirabatya.

Julienne Ayinkamiye, graduate of the last cycle of the Film Academy at the University of Rwanda, is one of the two inaugurations of the Kigala leadership project.

In this program, a BBOXX pilot solar lighting project will be launched this year in Rwanda and then in Africa, and has worked in different companies.

The work included research on client satisfaction and competitors analysis, he said.

The training will help "increase my analytical, overall project management and management capabilities", and BBOXX will give you more potential for hiring.

"I am now working on real projects in millions of rural homes throughout Africa," he said.

Renewable energy training personnel is encouraged to increase the number of African countries to promote the use of renewable electricity networks.

Kenya launched a new national electricity strategy in December, which includes independent renewable energy systems through electrical networks to achieve 100% electricity by 2022.

Currently, Kenyans have about three quarters of electricity to achieve, according to the new plan.

Kenya's push for networking is a solar network project that connects 13 million people to 14 counties in particular, said Isaac Kiva, the renewable energy secretary at the Kenya Energy Ministry.

"We are currently working with our education system to build the necessary capacity for developing solar-specific curricula," he said.

The Rwandan Government is collaborating with United States universities, including Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh, and has a better access to energy development jobs. Nazirabatinya said.

"This will have a positive impact on the Ruan's talent pool", he announced.
