1 Renewable Energy Project Development Programme (PDP) Sub-Saharan Africa German Solar Training Week - renewables - Made in Germany initiative Date: February 2015 Organizers: renewables Made in Germany initiative / Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH German Solar Training Week 2015 From February 2015, the renewables Made in Germany initiative will facilitate trainings conducted by German companies in the context of the German Solar Training Week (GSTW). The topics of the GSTW 2015 are Appropriate Applications of PV Systems, Batteries in PV Systems, PV-Diesel Hybrid and Off-Grid Systems, and Solar Pumping. Participants gain the following benefits by attending the GSTW: Build capacity in the technical and financial aspects of PV-Diesel Hybrid Systems, Off-Grid Systems, Battery Technologies, and Solar Pumping Identify new business partnerships with reliable German companies Strengthen existing partnerships with German companies Participants may attend the programme during the entire week or only choose individual sessions. Participation is free of charge. Each session is explained further below and the respective target groups are outlined.

2 Trainers The training contents will be presented by representatives of reputable German companies: SMA Solar Technology AG ( Energiebau Solarstromsysteme GmbH ( Hoppecke Batterien GmbH & Co. KG ( Solar23 GmbH ( Target Groups of Participants For the respective sessions, the following participant groups are targeted: Managing level of: local industries with an interest to install PV at their premises local banks and equity investors Engineers and technical staff of: local industries with an interest to install PV at their premises local banks and equity investors local distribution utilities local regulatory authorities and policymakers General background The market for solar energy in Ghana is growing, with the government putting in place ambitious strategic policies and regulations to encourage the use of Photovoltaics (PV) in order to meet the rising national electricity demand. Economically viable alternatives to the use of existing fossil fuels include PV stand-alone sytems, PV-diesel hybrid systems, as well as off-grid systems. German companies have gained broad experience in developing and applying these technologies as well as in providing engineering services that are relevant the Ghanaian market. Key to the expansion of these technologies and services in the Ghanaian market is the building of local capacity as well as the establishment of business partnerships that include the local solar industry, local power generation companies and the public sector. The German Solar Training Week, organized in the framework of the renewables Made in Germany initiative, aims to facilitate new business partnerships and strengthen existing ones.
