IIEC’s Experience in Training & Capacity Building

At a Glance:

IIEC enables sharing of knowledge and best practices across countries, and facilitates the mainstreaming of successful energy policies and projects. We accomplish this through our focus on local needs and delivery of training and capacity building programs customized to suit local contexts. The core objective of our training and capacity building programs is to ensure that stakeholders can implement energy related policies and activities in a sustainable manner.

Our Experience:

IIEC’s training and capacity building programs are developed through a comprehensive process. In each program, we assess specific needs and address them by using customized training tools, materials, and training approaches. Quantitative and qualitative market surveys and in-depth analyses are the core elements in our capacity building needs assessment exercises, which help IIEC define the capacity building requirements of the recipients. International experience and lessons learned are seamlessly integrated into our customized training tools and materials.

The Challenge:

Lack of knowledge and appropriate skills to identify and address the needs in clean energy development is common among policy makers, regulators, financiers, and private sectors in developing countries and economies in transition. These barriers have hampered greater adoption of clean energy policies and projects by policy makers and stakeholders. Often, even successful Energy Efficiency (EE) and Renewable Energy (RE) projects cannot be replicated due to a lack of market-supporting conditions, such as limited knowledge within financial institutions about financing such projects. The limited capacity of local technology suppliers and installers is another barrier to development and scaling up of clean energy projects.
