Peru, Lima, Solar Training Center 2015

Together with the Peruvian training organization SENATI and the GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH) on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, the plant was inaugurated on 01 of September 2016. The training facilities in 3 KW sections are designed for the training of electrical engineers of SENATI in the area of ​​solar energy efficiency and were erected by SUNFarming experts within the framework of the trainings. A SUNfarming solar carport, consisting of glass-glass modules, promotes electric mobility and supplies two SF e-scooters and two SF e-bikes with batteries with energy. The PV roof system feeds into the electricity grid and supplies SENATI with its own solar energy during the day. Two other training facilities were installed a week earlier in the north of Peru, Piura.

2 Food production with minimal water use
3 Training and further education
4 Creation of jobs
5 Seawater desalination for irrigation

Victor Rosillo, Südesco: Energy management after the introduction of ISO 5001
Ana Terrazos, SECO Switzerland: Realization of energy-efficient projects
Carlos Obregozo, KfW: Financing of “Renewable Energies”
Political and business leaders, including banks and utilities, were among the participants and participated in the ensuing, lively discussion. The most important topic here was the latest SUNfarming project Food & Energy, which also offers excellent opportunities for development policy in South America.
