ECPA Initiative-Solar Professionals' Academy of the Americas shares its results in a video (Spanish).
The renewable energy market in Latin America is taking off, aided by
shrinking costs for photovoltaic and new government programs that
facilitate business. The Latin American region holds great promise for
solar, due to relatively high costs for electricity and ample sunlight,
and a fast-expanding middle class that is increasing its energy
initiatives focus on Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy, Cleaner and
More Efficient Use of Fossil Fuels, Energy Infrastructure, Energy
Poverty, Sustainable Forests and Land Use, and Adaptation. Under ECPA,
the lead and/or participating governments and public and private sector
partners contribute resources to implement the initiatives.
the ECPA Solar Energy International trained a workforce and enable them
to increase universal access to electricity through renewable energy
development. The Solar Professionals' Academy of the Americas (SPAA)
trained 50 people representing countries, communities, and
organizations throughout Central America and Mexico to design, install,
and maintain solar PV systems and to successfully launch and administer
businesses in this critically important industry.
