Capacity Building

We work in building institutional, technical and financial capacities of governments and industry professionals. Importantly, we seek to build core competencies engrained in the foundations of a low-carbon and sustainable future.

Our work has led to strengthening cooperation and building capacities of member countries such as Laos PDR and the Philippines, the countries of Jordan, Lebanon, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, and Sudan in West Africa, and the neighbouring country of Bhutan, in the areas of sustainable energy and decentralised technologies. In India, we have built technical capacities of more than 10,000+ renewable energy professional across the country, besides strengthening institutional and financial capacities of key state nodal agencies, electricity regulatory commissions and government utilities.

WISE has always been vocal about the importance of building capacity of stakeholders and has provided training to diverse groups, including law makers, policy makers, RE professionals, regulators, state nodal agencies, state electricity utilities, private sector organizations, and the media. Some of the key training programmes, representative of this diversity, are covered under this section.

Many of the events that were held were ahead of their times and initiated debate and dialogue between and amongst policy makers and the RE sector, facilitating policy and proactive measures in accelerating the development of renewable energy in India. In addition, WISE has also pioneered / organised seminars on emerging and critical renewable energy technologies.
