The Coach, Advisor, Host and Voice of SADC Energy Professionals

Kafue Gorge Regional Training Centre (KGRTC) is a Subsidiary Organisation of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), established in 1989 - with the support of NORAD and Sida - to offer specialized training in hydropower and related engineering disciplines. Given its longstanding and internationally-recognised experience, today KGRTC operates as a key player in skills development for Renewable Energy (RE) and Eenergy Efficiency (EE) technologies in the region.

The Centre is committed to three core activities:
