The Fako community and the entire Cameroon will in the coming weeks benefit from a drive of cutting-edge technology. In collaboration with Fako Cultural Development Association (FACUDA), the CEO of African Green Industries and Technologies (AGI), Engineer Emmanuel Efome based in Germany will lead a team, transferring solar technological knowledge from Germany to Cameroon.
Being the first of its kind in the Fako region, the project will not only transform and revitalize but will as well supplement sustainable energy to the undersupplied energy sector of Cameroon, and hence increase the wattage. Consequently the problems of deficiency and scarcity of desirable electrical energy will be drastically curbed in the anticipated future, once the implementation phase commences.
Between the 7th and 30th April 2015, as partner in cooperation, the Opportunities Industrialization Center (OIC) Buea - Cameroon will host the special training of local electricians. In an exchange with Cameroon Concord, the CEO of AGI, Mr Emmanuel Efome reiterates that through this training, experienced local electricians with little or no experience in Photovoltaics will be imparted with an in-depth insight into the basics and the process of planning, designing, installing and operating and maintaining photovoltaic systems.
The German trained Engineer in addition specified, that out of the basic general knowledge of electrical business operations, electricians and technicians in Cameroon deserve to acquire, advance and explore the skills of doing business with the Sun – The Green Economy; which involves harnessing potentials of the market segment, financing, customer service and future prospects. These and other aptitudes will be enlightening highlights in the four weeks training project, says Mr. Emmanuel Efome.
Cameroon Concord understands that this project is being subsidize by Engagement Global and the German Federal State of North Rhine Westphalia, meanwhile it will be realized in cooperation with other institutions like Haute energy Systems and Solar Energie Projekt
This development has been applauded by Cameroonian opinion leaders and leading organizations in Germany. It is a long awaited advancement says Sylverster Njungong, an Engineer working with LedTech GmbH Germany. We all need to support the AGI initiative, and it is hoped this project achieves the anticipated goal emphasized Mr. Njungong
In his quest to empower his people by taking these skills back home and just like the biblical Jesus Christ, Engineer Emmanuel Efome wants his people to know how to fish, rather than fish them.
