IVLP Impact Award Project: Sustainable Energy For All

The project was implemented in the city of Cochabamba, Bolivia with a focus on developing future trainers and awareness campaigners who are motivated to increase their knowledge of the topic and who can spread the knowledge they acquire through the project. The main goal of the project was to raise awareness and knowledge about available clean energies. To do this, there were online discussion meetings on sustainable available clean energies. There were training sessions on the dimensioning and installation of PV panels, construction and use of thermal panels and bio-digesters as a way to clean water at the household level.

This project engaged 200 people virtually and 149 people through in-person workshops about renewable energy, how to build PV panels and how to increase renewable energy usage.
