The International Center for Energy, Environment and Development (ICEED) has equipped and trained its first 24 of Borno State’s targeted 140 solar technicians. The practice, which mixed intense curriculum and realistic tasks, tagged ‘Borno MAIDA venture’, had five young women among trained sol... technicians. Under the initiative, 140 young people will be trained in solar installation and business in Borno State’s Six LGAs, while some health and education facilities, as well as local residents, would be fitted with solar power equipment to minimize safety risks for women and children and mitigate gaps in energy deficiency facilities.
The International Centre for Energy, Environment and Development Foundation is committed to the goal of poverty eradication. We deliver this commitment by providing the evidence base for reforms and political influence that shape the poor's energy and climate security. ICEED has over the years of its establishment become Nigeria's leading centre on energy access and climate change. Together with some of the world's foremost resource centres, we have brought market development expertise, capacity building, project implementation and behaviour communication to Nigeria. ICEED has led some of the most important clean energy and climate change activities including the development and promotion of the Bill to Establish the National Climate Change Commission; leading the development of the Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventory for Nigeria and writing the Federal Government of Nigeria's Renewable Energy Master Plan. Our key expertise is in policy reform and market development for expanding access to clean energy.
While ICEED provides the evidence base and advocacy for policy change on clean energy and climate change, the Centre is solidly on the ground changing lives through projects in communities around the country. ICEED has clean energy footprints in communities in over half of the states of the Nigerian federation.
