ILO, SIDA and KGRTC to Implement pilot project for skills development for the Renewable Energy (RE) and Energy Efficiency (EE) sub-sectors in Zambia. 

The International Labour Organization, with funding from the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA), will support Kafue Gorge Regional Training Centre (KGRTC) implement a pilot project for skills development for the Renewable Energy (RE) and Energy Efficiency (EE) sub-sectors in Zambia.
The one-year pilot project aims to contribute to Zambia having the necessary skilled people to tap into the rapid development of technology in renewable energy and energy efficiency.
Speaking at the signing ceremony held in Lusaka today, ILO Director George Okutho reaffirmed the organization’s commitment towards partnering with countries in the implementation of development cooperation projects.
“It is a significant project in that it is going to contribute to Zambia’s achieving Vision 2030. The contribution of renewable energy is cardinal,” said Mr. Okutho.
And Swedish Ambassador to Zambia Henrik Cederin said the project would contribute to Zambia having the necessary skilled people to be able to tap into the rapid development of technology in renewable energy and energy efficiency.
“The increasing complexity of the energy sector call for new skills, further learning and more knowledge within Zambia regarding sustainable and renewable energy generation, clean and decentralized energy services and energy efficiency measures,” said Ambassador Cederin.
