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 renewable energy and energy efficiency measures these alumni have a strong potential to lead the development of sustainable economic 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 in renewable energy. The goal is to build a strong alumni community to support each other in developing green energy projects in their home countries.

In cooperation with the GIZ and on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, RENAC has launched the ANSAP programme to provide a platform for the alumni network. It also gives a number of alumni the opportunity to participate in an exclusive online training and mentoring scheme to develop green energy projects. The scheme provides mutual support amongst the alumni as well as expert advice.

The overall initiative 'Green People's Energy for Africa' relies on the broad participation of small and medium-sized enterprises, municipalities, cooperatives, public associations and citizens to develop energy systems. It 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.
