Deadline for SEI Submissions 7 August

The Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) Sustainable Energy Project (SEP) now offers free online Solar Energy International (SEI) training for 10 participants from the TCIG Energy and Utilities Department (EUD), the Department of Planning (DOP), Public Works Department (PWD), and the TCI Community College (TCICC), to increase the local knowledge of government officials and the educational institution on renewable/green energy (R/GE).

This knowledge gained will be critical to continuing R/GE projects in TCI and tightening knowledge gaps at the tertiary level.

The TCI SEP is supported by the Resilience, Sustainable Energy and Marine Biodiversity (RESEMBID) RESEMBID is a 47-project progamme funded by the European Union and implemented by Expertise France - the development cooperation agency of the Government of France and supports sustainable human development efforts in 12 Caribbean Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs).

Carried out locally by The Ministry of Public Safety and Utilities (MPSU), Energy and Utilities Department (EUD), the project aims to strengthen the capacity of TCI for a sustainable green energy transition and to create long-term and meaningful change within the energy sector and across public systems in TCI.
