Skills training

The centre provides hands on tailor-made courses for technicians and entrepreneurs. Pumulani use trainers with full experience in the production, installation and maintenance of solar installations. The aim, subject and length of each course is geared to the particular group in training.

The centre also offers after-training support to newly established solar entrepreneurs. Organised introductory days can be arranged for those interested. On a public demo day, visitors are shown various renewable energy applications together with explanations and demonstrations. Special demos with technical guidance can be arranged for those using or thinking of using renewable energy. Due to Zambia's size and vast remote areas, the national electricity grid is not an option for many Zambian households. Renewable energy provides a real opportunity for the development of energy supplies across Zambia. However, Zambia faces key barriers to the deployment of renewable energy which the Pumulani Renewable Energy Centre are aiming to solve. These barriers are:

  • Limited availability of technical knowledge and capacity to train, design, install, operate, manage and maintain renewable energy systems.
  • Limited availability and access to existing renewable energy information and resources.
  • A lack of public awareness on renewable energy technologies.
