A two-day capacity building training programme was organised by WISE in association with the Centre for Environment and Energy Development (CEED), the local partner, on ‘Strengthening Institutional Capacity of BREDA for Energy Access Interventions’ in January 2018 in Patna. The programme was part of a funded, capacity building project for SNAs for energy access.

It was attended by around 40 senior and middle managerial level officials deputed from the field office and head office. It briefly covered policy and regulatory provisions for promoting decentralized RE systems and mini-grid applications, and offered hands-on training on the latest software used for resource analysis and project optimization of solar PV. Demonstration of the management tools/application software developed by WISE was also part of the training provided.
