The launch of the capacity building partnership in Nigeria kicked off with its inaugural session. It provided a comprehensive overview of the evolution, trends, opportunities, and challenges within the country's decentralized renewable energy sector.
We are looking for projects that aim to implement, standardise or disseminate innovative and sustainable pico or micro hydro power (P/MHP) solutions to meet local energy needs. Background on hydro power issues and project examples can be found under Micro Hydro Power in our Technology Radar. Between 3 and 6 technical projects will be selected for support via a thorough validation procedure.
As in the last three calls, in addition to supporting technical project implementation, SEPS also supports knowledge exchanges within the target region that address the capacity-building of actors and organisations in the sustainable pico or micro hydro power sector.
The deadline for the submission of applications is April 8 2015, 16:00 GMT.
