Applying Green Energy Finance (AGEF): Combination of Online Training and Face-to-Face Seminars

The Green Banking Applying Green Energy Finance Programme is a combination of a Kick-off Workshop in the respective partner country, followed by an Online Training (OT) and a Face-to-Face Seminar in the respective partner country. The Face-to-Face Seminar is complementary to the Online Training and is a country-specific, in-depth training on technical and financial topics related to finance of RE and EE projects. The three-day seminar also offers an introduction of an Excel tool for project assessment and financial structuring. Throughout the project lifetime of Green Banking MENA, one Applying Green Energy Finance Programme per country including Kick-off Workshops, Online Training and Face-to-Face seminars will be realised with up to 15 scholarship participants from each country per course.

Additionally, the option of participation only in the Kick-off Workshop and the Online-Training will be offered to qualified applicants who would not be able to participate in Face-to-Face seminars.

Content and Country-Specific Technology Focus

The Green Banking Applying Green Energy Finance Programme combines a 1-day Kick-off Workshop and a 12-weeks Online Training with a 3-days Face-to-Face Seminar in the respective partner country. Since the concept of Online Training is not yet widespread in the partner countries, a face-to-face Kick-off workshop introduces this way of learning to the participants before its launch. Via the Online Training the participants receive insight information into Green Energy and Climate Finance. Thereupon, participants have an equal knowledge basis to attend the subsequent Face-to-Face Seminar in their country. Based on a capacity needs assessment conducted by RENAC in the second half of 2017, different interests and demands were identified for each country. Consequently, different RE/EE technologies will be presented during the seminars in the respective countries.
