EWA Minister opens Training workshop

Electricity and Water Affairs Minister Dr. Abdulhussain Mirza has opened a training workshop at the Electricity and Water Authority (EWA)’s Training Centre in Sitra.

The workshop leads to an approved certificate for contractors and consultants specialized in the installation of solar energy systems.

The event was attended by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)’s Resident Representative Amin El Sharkawy and guests.

Speaking on the occasion, the minister said that such a workshop comes from the interest of Bahrain’s leadership in clean energy for the country’s sustainable development.

He thanked the officials of EWA and the Sustainable Energy Unit and the consulting company CESI Middle East the consultancy and engineering firm that supported Bahrain in developing regulatory and strategic requirements related to the delivery of electricity generated from renewable energy to the government’s electricity grid, for organising the workshop.

El Sharkawy thanked the minister on the positive and rapid steps to introduce renewable energy activities and projects in Bahrain and training contractors, consultants and technicians on solar energy systems. He said Bahrain’s solar energy plans would allow people to install solar panels in homes, factories and hotels, which would enhance the role of the private sector in their deployment and installation.
