SERC is accredited by the National Industrial Training Authority (NITA)  to offer training for renewable energy professions. The trained participants are examined and licensed as qualified technicians by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority(EPRA). The energy field in Kenya suffers a deficiency of skilled personnel qualified to design, install and effectively maintain modern energy systems. SERC is bridging this gap by providing practical oriented, hands-on training courses. To date, more than a thousand technicians have been trained in our programmes at SERC and cooperating institutes in East and West Africa.

This course is the entry point to become a licensed Solar technician or Solar products vendor. Participants receive comprehensive know-how for photovoltaics, hands-on training with technical components, designing optimized PV stand-alone systems to apply for a T2 license from the Energy Regulatory Commission.

PV hybrid power systems play an essential role in rural electrification and as power backups. SERC labs provde a 14kWp PV/genset demonstrational hybrid system which can be operated in battery storage or fuel saver configuration. The theoretical part includes a comprehensive discussion of all major reneweable and conventional energy sources. Participants will learn all planning steps by designing and calculating their own PV hybrid systems.

In Kenya, energy and labour at processing factories account for 55% of the cost of tea production. Firewood is one of the biggest costs with the average tea factory using 20,000 cubic meters of firewood annually, which equates to about 60,000 trees. The majority of processing factories are equipped with old equipment (lighting, furnaces, boilers etc.) and don’t have good energy management policies in place, which means they don’t operate efficiently. This course examines the huge potential to reduce energy consumption, CO2 emissions and operational costs.

 

Course Objective

Understanding the requirements of the Energy Management Regulations 2012 and the role of energy committees

Causalities between energy use, global warming and climate change

Productive and cost effective use of thermal and electric energy sources by their respective tea factories based on tea factory operators training manual

Energy consumption monitoring, cost accounting and benchmarking

To carry out walk through audits including elements of general energy audits

Tree nurseries and naturing plants to maturity

Target Group
The course is open to engineers from industry, maintenance staff and factory technicians

Course Delivery
A mixed learning method approach is employed. The main  method is through content projection with participants being taken through the contents of the different presentation slides, class demonstrations and skits, flip charts and video playback.
On the last day of the training, the participants take part in a walk-through audit of the host tea factory. The trainees then report back in a plenary session their audit findings and any recommendations that the factory can implement so as to address areas that energy is wasted or inappropriately used.

Fee Kes 45,000/= per participant

The training is aimed at giving the participants a broad view on impact of energy efficiency on the environment and business performance of their facilities. Participants will also be able to learn about what opportunities are available in their facilities and practical ways of tapping into those opportunities. Also of importance is how to ensure that gains made after implementation of energy conservation measures are sustained.

Course Overview
Energy Management has continued to be a major topic in Kenya. Industrial, commercial and institutional facilities can substantially reduce their energy costs through reduction and control of their energy usage. Following the passing of the Energy Management Regulations of 2012, all industries consuming more than 180,000kWh of energy per annum are required to:

-Formally designate an energy manager

-Prepare and submit an energy management policy to ERC for approval

-Carry out an energy audit every three years

-Submit audit reports and implementation plans to the Commission for approval

-Commence implementation of energy saving measures identified from the audits; and accomplish at least 50% savings within a period of three years

Evidently there is need to ensure further compliance through training in energy management to support implementation of energy management measures.

 

Key focus areas

-Compliance areas related to government regulations in industrial energy consumption

-Role of facility management and personnel in energy management

-Energy conservation opportunities available to industries, indicative implementation costs and typical energy and cost savings

-Continuous improvement strategies in energy management

-Comparison and benchmarking of the factory and other similar factories, local and international

 

Target Group
This program is designed for mid to senior level management who are interested in energy matters within their organisations. Participants will tour the 600kWp Solar PV plant at Strathmore University and undertake a mock audit of the university’s cafeteria.

Course Delivery
The training will be delivered in 3 days that will incorporate plenary sessions, group discussions and presentation of case studies from individual facilities.

Fee Kes 40,000/per participant
