Greeting from PRENAC. My more than 30 years of Technology Business Development experience has convinced me of the need to establish Quality Academy for training in Renewable Energy Sector in order to meet fill the gap created because of high growth of Solar Penetration in National Energy MIX.
Because of high costs of Power from Grid, use of Renewable energy and energy Management is getting rise in Pakistan and Renewable Energy is the right option to generate electricity and reduce dependency on fossil fuels. Rapid growth in Renewable Energy businesses has created a large skill gap for qualified and trained work force. PRENAC is the right forum for learning new skills and up-gradation of existing skills in the field of Renewable Energy and Energy Management. There is a need to create quality and standards in the field of Renewable Energy and training can play important role in creating and maintaining quality and standardization in Pakistan Renewable Energy Sector. Pakistan Renewable Energy Market is growing rapidly and is facing major challenge of trained and skilled manpower for design, installation and performance measurement. PRENAC has the right staff and equipment to address these challenges. Academy has strong links with Renewable business employers and institutions and have designed its courses in consultation and cooperation of Renewable industry to meet their needs. Academy has qualified faculty and state of art Lab and workshop for testing and training on equipment. Dean of Academy is master trainer from GIZ Pakistan, Resource person on CPD Renewable Energy course by Pakistan Engineering Council and got TOT Training from RENAC Academy Germany with extensive experience of training. Renewable Academy has been accredited by REAP and PSA. It has cooperation with International Solar Energy Society Germany, GIZ Pakistan, ENERCON, IEP, IEEP, PEC, AEDB and, all provincial Energy Departments. To enhance capacity of PRENAC, it is now online Academy of Energy Training and Research Center (ETRC) www.etrc.org.pk.
