(Business in Cameroon) - About fifteen young Cameroonians in the renewable energy branch at the Institut des Technologies Appliquées (ITA), have just received their training completion certificates in Douala, the economic capital of the country. They had the opportunity of doing their professional internship in Germany, as part of the partnership linking this training institute to Angela Merkel’s country.

A partnership extolled by the chargé d’affaires at the German embassy in Cameroon, Lars Leymann. He also advised the young graduates, who have already created a SME specialised in providing services related to solar energy, to get in touch with the German cooperation organisations in Cameroon gathered within GIZ.

As a reminder, apart from hydroelectricity, the other forms of renewable energy are barely present in Cameroon. Officially, solar power, wind power and biomass make up only 1% of the energy mix in the country. A situation which many players would like to improve, particularly by establishing local expertise.
