Training: Fundamentals of Community-Scale Hydro
Training Courses (Duration: 6 weeks)
  • Mini-grid

HPNET is excited to offer a 6-week training: The Fundamentals of Community-Scale Hydro Mini-Grids. The training is made possible through support from Skat Foundation, DGRV, GIZ, and WISIONS. Focused on technical and local enterprise aspects of community hydro systems, the self-paced, virtual training will take place from Feb. 7 to March 18, 2022, and is offered at no cost. The training is part of HPNET’s Social Enterprise for Energy, Ecological and Economic Development (SEEED) Accelerator designed for local practitioners.

While technical in focus, the training emphasizes climate resilience and other socio-environmental co-benefits. An engineering or science background can be beneficial but is not required. The modules are as follows: - Orientation to Hydro Mini-Grids - Social Enterprise Models for Mini-Grids - Demand Assessment - Water Resource Assessment - Terrain Assessment - Power Output Design

Participants are encouraged to attend a live kick-off session on February 7, as well as weekly live sessions for Q&A and discussion for each module of the 6-week program. In between the live sessions participants will be expected to do self-paced learning using the SEEED learning management system, featuring videos, articles, quizzes, and discussion forums. The live synchronous sessions will be planned for morning Sub-Saharan Africa and afternoon/evening Asia Pacific time zones.

The time commitment for each of the 6 training modules is estimated as follows: - Kickoff session: 1 hour (Optional) - Live Q&A and peer-to-peer dialogue: 1 to 2 hours./week (Optional) - Self-work: 1 to 2 hours/week (Required)

All interested individuals are welcome to apply by filling out this form by February 1, 2022.
