PREA is a joint project between four European Universities and three African Universities, as well as the International Solar Energy Society (ISES). Training and capacity-building of energy professionals, regulators, academics and policy- and decision-makers has enhanced the necessary skills to implement renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency in buildings in Africa, notably in South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda. Training has been offered through Workshops and a Masters Degree Course in Integration of Renewable Energy in Buildings (IREB), which are adapted to local requirements and provide for exchange and further training.
In this page:
- Development and implementation of the master courses targeting professionals, especially architects or building engineers, and government officials, in the three countries (Tanzania, Uganda and South Africa)
- Capacity building workshops
- The implementation of MSc courses in three African countries is much more complex than expected as the administration, organisation and available staff vary enormously between the three Universities.
- Positive lessons can be drawn from the both series of workshops. These have been very successful. Also this project can be seen as a starting point for further projects and university collaboration
