SHIP Training for banks and financial institutions in South Africa

Within the framework of the international Solar Payback project the German Renewables Academy AG invites interested parties to a Banking Workshop on SHIP from April to May 2018. The event addresses representatives of bank and financial institutions that are interested in a country-specific training on possible financing models for solar process heat projects. Applications for the free of charge training can be submitted online until 12th of March.

The Banking Workshop combines a 6-week Online Training from 12 to 23 April 2018 with a 2-day Face-to-Face workshop in Cape Town (24.-25.05.2018). Participants who are not familiar with the technology so far receive insight information on solar thermal technology via the Online Training. It covers the basics of the technical and economic aspects of solar process heat systems. Thereupon, attendees will have an equal knowledge basis to attend the subsequent Face-to-Face workshop. The online training and the workshop will be held in English.
