Energy Generation (EG), a pan-African organisation specialising in the incubation of innovative projects, is recruiting professionals to lead its training courses on solar kits in Togo. The call for applications was recently made public.
Energy Generation (EG), a pan-African organisation specialising in the incubation of innovative projects, wants to strengthen its offer in Togo. To this end, the institution has set up a project to train Togolese people on solar kits. It involves technical training that will take place at the organisation’s training centre in the capital Lomé.
Energy Generation specialises in accompanying young Africans towards entrepreneurship and technological innovation, especially in terms of access to solar energy. The organisation is looking for professionals to carry out this training. “They must, among other things, have solid knowledge in the various fields of physics and electrical engineering. They must also have expertise in the installation, repair and maintenance of photovoltaic panels,” says EG.
The role of professionals
The professionals who will be recruited by EG as part of the solar kit trainings will conduct trainings, lectures, tutorials and practical work. In addition, they will be in charge of the pedagogical follow-up of the training participants (skills grid, tests…) and of the technical follow-up. Also within the framework of these training sessions, the new EG recruits will ensure the proper functioning of the pedagogical material. They will also take care of the safety kits that will be given to the participants at the beginning of the training.
One of the biggest challenges in the emergence of Africa remains access to electricity. Energy Generation has understood this and knows today that the future of the continent lies in the African youth, who are competing for ideas to find solutions improve access to electricity. The organisation has already helped entrepreneurs from a dozen African countries to emerge in this field through its many projects, including the Africa Energy Generation Prize project. Every year, the project enables 10 entrepreneurs with projects in the field of energy (including the production, storage, transport, conservation or management of this precious resource) to be educated in entrepreneurship in EG’s training centres (in Togo, Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire and Nigeria). Winners are exempt from tuition fees and receive a scholarship. Their transportation is also covered for the duration of the training, which generally lasts two years. After the course, project leaders receive qualification certificates. The 10 project promoters can also participate in three other prizes through the Africa Energy Generation Prize project. At the end of these competitions, the three best project promoters are awarded prizes.
