The Zambia Environmental Management Agency (ZEMA), with financial support from the Agence Francaise de Développement (AFD), contracted our partner CITEPA for a project aimed at enhancing the capacities of Zambian agencies in the fields of GHG inventories and related topics, as well as supporting Zambia in the development of a Measurement, Reporting, Verification (MRV) system and an Energy Balance.
As part of this initiative, various Zambian stakeholders, including representatives from ZEMA, the Department of Energy, the Energy Regulatory Board, and the Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation, needed to strengthen their knowledge and expertise in technical energy topics.
At Enerdata, we are dedicated to supporting our clients in developing their skills and increase their knowledge to achieve their objectives. Our training programmes are built and presented by our highly qualified team of energy analysts and modelling specialists. Therefore, we were responsible for conducting a capacity-building workshop of this project, focused on energy modelling and energy efficiency indicators.
Our energy modelling experts travelled to Zambia to provide a dedicated four-day training programme. It covered theoretical components, presenting the fundamentals of energy systems modelling and the methodology of different types of models, as well as definitions of key energy efficiency indicators helping to measure efficiency efforts in various sectors, both historically and in scenarios. Theoretical concepts were regularly illustrated through practical exercises and examples.
This comprehensive session ensured that the trainees fully understood the concepts covered. Our hands-on approach was particularly appreciated as it enabled the trainees to apply the theory to practical and concrete case studies.
