Energising Development (EnDev) has conducted a one day data collection training for technicians and installers in the renewable energy sector on December 13 2018.
The purpose of the training was to get technicians up to speed on how to use the EnDev collect app to register renewable energy installations.
The training was facilitated by EnDev technical expert Hamza Zbidi with support from EnDev staff.
Several stakeholders from different private institutions, businesses and Non-Governmental Organisations formed part of the participants.
The training session was very practical and allowed participants to get hands on experience on how to download, install and use the EnDev collect app for registration and monitoring.
Participants were later divided into various workgroups headed by an experience EnDev collect user. Each group was mandated to use the app to register a facility and then a system. They also did a follow up monitoring of the systems that they registered.
At the end of the workgroup session, each group presented it findings/challenges on the usage of the app.
Inputs were made by various stakeholders about how the app can be improved and adapted for the various stakeholders.
