The agreement signed in Paris during the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21) is proof of the key role renewable energy and energy efficiency play in international climate change mitigation efforts. While green markets keep gaining momentum, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia enjoy the necessary natural resources for widespread implementation of renewable energy and energy efficiency projects. Local professionals with the appropriate know-how will be able to profit from new business opportunities in a growing industry, which additionally presents manifold benefits (reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, energy security and job creation, among many others).

Currently, RE and EE projects face substantial blocks to external financing from banks, which is usually characterized by high interest rates. The trainings are intended to tackle these circumstances. Through the “Green Banking MENA” programme, professionals from private and public financial institutions involved or interested in financing green energy projects will gain specific knowledge in technologies, financial schemes, risk evaluation, mitigation measures and international climate finance options. Interested professionals from Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia can apply here until 15 January 2019 for the first part of the scholarship programme, the Train-the-Trainer seminar at RENAC’s Training Centre in Berlin, Germany.

“Green Banking MENA” is a scholarship programme as part of the project DIAPOL-CE - Policy dialogue and knowledge management on low emissions development strategies in the MENA region. DIAPOL-CE is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the [..] within the German International Climate Initiative (IKI) and implemented by GIZ.

Since 2015, RENAC’s award-winning Green Banking programme has been successfully implemented in South-East Asia and is now being transferred to other regions, such as MENA. To ensure that the content of the programme meets local requirements, capacity needs assessment trips took place in winter 2017 in cooperation with the Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE). “The Green Banking Train-the-Trainer seminar is a great opportunity to learn from one of the world’s top renewable energy countries as well as obtain efficient didactical methods”, said Nguyen Thi Cam Tu of Vietnam Public Joint Stock Commercial Bank, who participated in the scholarship programme in Vietnam. In addition to the Train-the-Trainer seminar at RENAC’s Training Centre in Berlin to build up local trainers, the programme’s activities include a face-to-face training in the partner countries and an online training.

The Renewables Academy AG (RENAC) based in Berlin, Germany, is one of the leading international providers for training and capacity building in renewable energy and energy efficiency. Since 2008, more than 10,000 participants from over 140 countries have joined RENAC’s training programmes. For further information, please visit RENAC’s website. Interested professionals can apply until 15 January 2019.
