MAIA-TAQA successfully concludes its 2nd batch of training for resource-efficient solutions for PV systems design and battery storage in Egypt


The MAIA-TAQA project started its certified training course in Resource-efficient solutions for PV systems design and battery storage in Egypt on the 26th of November 2022, intending to tackle one of the main barriers to developing innovative services: the lack of capacity or competencies. The second batch of the third training course held by the MAIA-TAQA project in Egypt concluded on the 17th of December 2022!

The 46-hour course, aimed at engineers, was held at the Arab Academy of Science, Technology, and Maritime Transport and the Alexandria Chamber of commerce in Alexandria from the 26th of November until the 13th of December in a blended learning format (one full offline training day at AASTMT, two at the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce and two onsite training days at Al Amreya pilot site). The remaining hours were taught online via ZOOM.

"The training was very informative, the material was excellent and organized. The instructors provided an excellent presentation of the material." - Eng Amira Farid Rezk Greiss, Quality Engineer at the Egyptian Electricity Transmission (EETC).

"The Solar Energy course was an amazing experience. The instructors were knowledgeable, and the material was presented in a well-organized and clear manner. I learned a lot about different technologies related to solar energy, their advantages and drawbacks, and how to incorporate them into our everyday lives. The hands-on activities allowed us to put our knowledge into practice, making it easier to understand the concepts. Overall, this course was an enjoyable educational experience that I strongly recommend to anyone looking to deepen their knowledge of solar energy." - Eng. Waleed Sheta, Mechanical Engineer at Siemens Energy.

"Thanks to the trainer's and organizers' efforts, this course was useful and provided me with some experience in the field of PV systems that I can use post-graduation." - Omar Moustafa Abdelghafa, Senior Student at the Faculty of the Engineering department of power and machines.

"Very useful sessions for all PV stages and optimization. The instructors explained the different concepts properly, and the materials were shared after sessions in a timely manner." - Eng. Mohamed Al-Rifaei, Electrical Engineer - Master Environmental studies at Aram Maritime Academy.

"The training was very useful to me, I earned new Knowledge that I didn't have before, I know a lot of useful things now about PV plant system, batteries, and how photovoltaic power system is important nowadays for a sustainable and clean environment. Also, there was a session about finance given by Dr Silvia, it was very useful and gave me wide knowledge about finance. Trainers were very professional and tried as much as possible to give us all the knowledge they knew to us. Last but not least, I wanna thank Mr Butler for being there and Ms Joudy for the great project organization, the training was organized very well and I received every reminder for the session a day before and on the morning of the training day, and e-mails including all the materials given by the trainers." - Abdelrahman Soliman Ali, Logistics Student at the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport (AASTMT).
