Masdar Organises Workshop to Enhance Pacific Ocean Countries’ Capacities in Renewable Energy
Att.Editors: The following item is from the Emirates News Agency (WAM)

ABU DHABI,Jan 12 (WAM) - The United Arab Emirates-based Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar) has organised a high-level training workshop on renewable energy for top decision-makers and chief executives from 11 Pacific Ocean countries, shortly before the convention of the General Assembly of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) over the course of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.

The training was covered by AED183.6 million (US$50 million) UAE-Pacific Partnership Fund funded by the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD) and managed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC) to deliver a two-year training programme on energy for the Pacific region.

The current workshop aims to provide objective answers to a number of issues and questions that have risen around the importance of renewable energy, its properties, cost and advanced technologies it utilises, as well as the integration between renewable energy grids and conventional energy grids. It also tackled techniques used to build standalone renewable energy systems and help decision-makers build renewable energy integrated systems and solutions, in addition to discussing success stories and other key topics relevant to sustainable development efforts in their respective countries.

A third training session is planned for October 2018 and will cater to project and technical managers responsible for utility operations and renewable energy project planning in the Pacific region. (WAM) (END/2018)
