There are over 70 million households living in off grid areas whereas another 70 Million households face inconsistent energy supply in Pakistan. Find out how Shell Tameer is enabling an ecosystem towards a sustainable energy future.
Shell Tameer teamed up with Dalberg, a social impact consulting firm focused at delivering impact to fulfill the irregularities in energy provision to local households. Shell Tameer and Dalberg partnered for a three-day workshop titled the “Training of Trainers”. The purpose of the workshop was to engage multiple stakeholders, including from the private sector and academia, to train them on how to impactfully help energy entrepreneurs build successful energy businesses. Through supporting viable alternative energy solutions, we can help accelerate access to clean energy and help build a more sustainable world. The workshop consisted of six modules spanning across the three days.
12 participants from Shell Tameer’s partner network including senior faculty members from leading business and engineering institutes, representatives from Shell Retail, Lubricants and Trading & Supply businesses and SMEDA actively participated in the programme. Through their involvement in each module, participants deliberated on the viability of multiple clean energy solutions and the challenges that would be faced in their implementation.
Through this training, Shell Tameer is gearing up for an Energy Cohort in 2020.
