Renewable Energy Project: Mainstreaming Renewable Energy Resources and Raising Youth Awareness
Renewable Energy Project: Mainstreaming Renewable Energy Resources and Raising Youth Awareness
UNATT submits this proposal for a project entitled Mainstreaming Renewable Energy Resources and Raising Youth Awareness in Schools and Community Service Organizations in Trinidad and Tobago.
This is an extension of the previous GEF/SGP project, known by its short title – Alternative Energy Project. The short title for this second phase project is – Renewable Energy (RE) Project.
The goal and objectives of the first project were achieved substantially and the intention in this project is to apply lessons learnt to consolidate on the successful outcomes, to replicate, diversify and expand the original objectives. In summary the new project can be described by the following sets of activities:
a) Installation and operation of RE systems as practical examples in schools and in the premises of community service organizations which will serve as demonstration centres.
b) Education and training: formal and informal education and training programmes for young persons in schools and community service organizations and others already engaged or intending to become engaged in the RE industry.
c) Awareness creation of RE by means of various media, communications, fairs and exhibitions, workshops, etc.
A RE system has a long life-span. The project seeks to capitalise on this characteristic by ensuring that the ‘hardware’ will be properly maintained so as to be available to support long-term human resource development among several generations of young persons. Thus, particular emphasis will be placed on establishing a structure for long-term sustainability of the outputs of the project and its continuing contribution to the emerging national energy policy . A sustainable structure will also include:
a) Introduction and sensitisation of the youth to renewable energy (RE) concepts, future applications and uses with an emphasis on solar power applications;
b) Identification of the opportunities for skill development and employment in the renewable energy (RE) industry with emphasis on solar power generation and use;
c) Dissemination through the youth and by various means widespread understanding of energy efficiency and the place of solar energy in the energy future of the country.
