The Solar Professionals’ Academy of the Americas (SPAA), an ECPA initiative implemented by Solar Energy International (SEI), will provide training on the design, installation and maintenance of solar photovoltaic systems in Central America and Mexico. The goal is to support private sector engagement in the clean energy industry. Microenterprise business planning, entrepreneurship and clean energy technology training will be offered both online and in classrooms. The initiative will also encourage business networking among participants as a means to cultivate new commercial partnerships. This initiative will contribute to the goals of Connecting the Americas 2022 by training a workforce able to increase universal access to electricity through renewable energy development by supplying clean sources of power to the market. APSA participants will be trained in two online training sessions, and one week-long training at EARTH University – La Flor, in Costa Rica.
