Under SabahRE2, training has been provided by Green Empowerment, TONIBUNG and guests to build the depth of understanding necessary to plan, build, and manage a renewable mini-grid approach to rural electrification. This has begun with developing an introduction to the mini-grid concept, which can be watched in this short video.
High-level workshops have enabled government partners and stakeholders to understand the technical and institutional issues around the role of mini-grids in rural electrification an for enabling the broader renewable energy transition in Sabah. Key training materials on how mini-grids are relevant to Sabah and on mini-grid policy & financing are available under this Tab.
Courses have also been provided by TONIBUNG to refresh and upgrade the skills of existing mini-grid operators from remote villages and a new generation of village solar technicians. Such opportunities also provide opportunities for them to share their experiences, and build relationships towards a network that harnesses the spirit of collaboration for sustaining co-learning among operators.
This 20-minute video from a SabahRE2 Training Course provides an overview of the mini-grid concept and its relevance in Sabah.
