On behalf of the Energy Commission of Nigeria together with Eauxwell Nigeria Limited, the Berlin-based Renewables Academy last week carried out a renewable energy training seminar in Abuja, Nigeria. Nearly 120 decision-makers and practitioners participated in the seminar. "Capacity building is very important because change is mainly caused by people. Therefore, if we are to change energy consumption patterns to utilize renewable energy, then people with appropriate knowledge and expertise are required" explained Prof. A.S. Sambo, Director-General and CEO of the Energy Commission of Nigeria.
