RED Training Centers
partnership with the National Renewable Energy Programme, Synergent is
planning to build a network of Training Centers as part of the new
Renewable Energy Development (RED) Initiative.
RED Training Centers are intended to provide a range of Training and
Certification courses for Commercial Engineers, Project Technicians and
Equipment Installers to build over 5,000 MW of Clean Energy Projects
across Nigeria in the next decade.
Training Centers will also provide educational outreach programmes for
schools, colleges and universities to help prepare the next generation
for the many jobs and opportunities that will be created in Nigeria's
New Energy Economy.
first RED Training Center is planned for Kaduna City, adjacent to
Synergent's first Commercial Solar Farm which will begin construction
in Q2 2011. Additional RED Centers will be built in each of the 36
states as quickly as Synergent can initiate local projects. Combined,
they will form a nationwide network designed to strengthen both State
and Federal renewable energy development.
