Training Needs Assessment RE, EE - GOPA NESP 2014

This assessment identifies skills gaps and training needs in RE, RrE and EE vis-à-vis Nigeria’s evolving market demand and existing educational courses. It also seeks to define viable training courses capable of addressing the mid-term market demand that could be successfully introduced by NESP. These objectives are achieved through an analysis of market trajectories side by side with an identification of skills gaps. Download





Rapid Assessment of RE/EE Training Potential - GOPA NESP 2017

This study estimates the magnitude of demand for RE/EE training based on growth projections of renewables projects and energy efficiency practice. Three scenarios are being considerered: The floor and a top scenario trace the boundaries what as is deemed realistic while the mid-level scenario describes the best current confidence and expectation.
