Suka Wind and Solar Energy trains Burkinabe students in renewable energy


Suka Wind and Solar Energy Limited, leading experts in solar energy and environmental management, provided internship training to 10 students from the Burkina Institute of Technology, to build renewable energy capacity in the sub-region.

Managing Director Alhaji Suka Abdul-Wahab Raaj told the Ghanaian Times yesterday that the training was offered free of charge to Burkinabés and was part of efforts to promote renewable energy cooperation in West Africa.

The students received certificates of achievement after the four-week training session in Accra and have since returned to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso’s capital, to make an impact in their communities.

Students followed business ethics, theories and practice of solar energy and leveraged digitalization to effectively manage renewable energy.

They also received on-the-job training to familiarize themselves with the processes in renewable energy installations.

The interns expressed their gratitude to Suka energy for the opportunity to train in Ghana, and hoped that this would open up more opportunities for others in the sub-region to benefit from the internship program.

Alhaji Raaj said the company has gone international in its quest to ensure sustainable energy cooperation in the sub-region and to make it more accessible and affordable for communities, especially rural off-grid communities.

He said the training emphasizes business ethics, explaining that “in renewable energy we must be aware of the environment and be guided by integrity in our dealings so that in promoting it, we don’t hurt people.”

Alhaji said that by promoting energy conservation in the country, the company has opened its doors for school children to learn the basics of solar energy and conservation, saying that we are trying to achieve the parents at home through their children to promote energy efficiency in the home.

With an extensive network of industry partners to support her passion for improving communities through sustainable energy access, Suka is also focused on involving women in renewable energy.
