Capacity Building for municipal technicians in “Operation and Maintenance of Photovoltaic Systems”, 8th to 10th June 2011

This capacity building which was held at the Renewable Energy Technology Demonstrative Centre of the Bolivian Catholic University with the participation of 20 municipal technicians of different municipalities of the department of La Paz. The objective of the workshop was to teach the technicians the theoretical background of solar energy such as the basics of electro-technics, the components of photovoltaic systems, their applications as well as their installation and maintenance. On the other hand, on the third day of the event, practical exercises were included in order to obtain the practical capabilities of installation and maintenance of solar photovoltaic systems. The practical exercises were carried out with two demonstrative Solar Home Systems which form part of the capacity building tools of the Renewable Energy Technology Demonstrative Centre. The workshop aimed to contribute to the sustainability of renewable energy solutions for rural electrification in Bolivia, as the failure of maintenance is a common cause for the breakdown of Solar Home Systems in rural communities.
