Alumni Network and Support for Participants from Africa

The number of students and professionals from Africa being trained in Germany in the field of green energy is growing year by year. With increased knowledge in green energy projects these alumni have a strong potential to lead the development of sustainable energy systems in their home countries.

The alumni network of the 'Initiative Green People's Energy for Africa' aims to connect African graduates from German education and training programmes and support market and business development in green energy.

The overall initiative 'Green People's Energy for Africa' aims to enable, expand and secure the supply of green energy in rural Africa with different measures  - one of which being the alumni network programme.
