The Argentinian Province Of Jujuy On The Path To Green Energy

Fundación EcoAndina aims to transfer twenty years of practical experience in the field of solar energy to an upcoming generation of renewable energy technicians in Jujuy, Argentina.

Recently, Fundación EcoAndina delivered five training courses at their CEDIERA Centre and facilitated a number of guided visits to a technology park. These events attracted nearly two hundred participants, most of whom were technical students from three renewable energy institutes in and around San Salvador. Furthermore, the project team hosted conferences and open dialogues at the National University, which were attended by 170 participants.

Another highlight of the recent activities associated with this SEPS Exchange was the participation in the International Arts Festival Corazón Andino, an enchanting festival of arts and sustainability which took place for the first time in the Jujuy Province, raising awareness of renewable energy technologies among local citizens.

As a step towards empowering highland communities, EcoAndina visited the municipalities of Humahuaca, Abra Pampa and La Quiaca and discussed with officials the local situation concerning access to energy and possible future renewable energy projects in the Andean highlands.

In order to transfer years of field experience from an NGO to the creation of academic curricula, EcoAndina organised meetings with four institutes of technical education in Jujuy. National institutions, as well as regional and local authorities, recognise and value EcoAndina’s work and invited them to contribute their experiences to an upcoming public discussion.
