Tanzania Renewable Energy Association (TAREA) in partnership with Hivos of the Netherlands has completed the training of 20 girls in Masasi on solar photovoltaic technology, training phase one was completed on 12.11.2021. Then, girls go into the internship phase in which they will do intensive hands-on practice and entrepreneurship. Each girl has been served with a complete set of an electrical toolbox that enables her to start working as a solar photovoltaic artisan
The training that is implemented by TAREA and Hivos will give the 20 girls the ability to stand on their own economically and contribute to the efforts of reversing climate change.
<p>Tanzania Renewable Energy Association (TAREA) in cooperation with the Energy Transition Facility (ETF) of Netherlands implemented the project Enabling Solar Irrigation for Smallholder Agriculture in Tanzania from 01.03.2021 to 20.08.2021. The project was financially contributed by the Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The project was implemented with the purpose of smallholder farmers use sustainable clean energy for irrigation in agriculture, reducing the use of fossil fuel and related carbon dioxide emissions, by support to policy development on replacement of petrol generators i...</p>
Tanzania Renewable Energy Association (TAREA) in cooperation with German partner URBIS Foundation of Bayern are implementing the project that contributes to the fighting of climate change.
Tanzania is already experiencing adverse negative impacts of climate change like the rising water of Lake Tanganyika and Lake Victoria.
TAREA and URBIS Foundation are providing institutional efficient cooking stoves to the secondary schools in Malinyi District. Two secondary schools have already received 4 cooking stoves. One stove has a capacity of 200 litres.
The stoves are manufactured locally by Envotec Services Ltd and they have the efficiency of reducing the consumed firewood by more than 50% and enable complete fuel combustion reducing greenhouse gases.
TAREA has a plan to scale up the program to reach other secondary schools within the district and beyond.
The schools are encouraged to plant trees that will enable sustainable fuelwood supply and play the role of the carbon sink.
The initiatives will contribute to the reversing of progressive climate change.
<p>In the year 2015, Tanzania Electricity and Water Regulatory Authority (EWURA) enacted the electricity law that requires all electricity installers to hold a license from the authority. The requirements to qualify for applying for the license did not allow the informal trained renewable energy artisans to obtain the license. TAREA advocated EWURA to review the law that it could offer the opportunity to informal trained renewable energy artisans of accessing the license. EWURA reviewed the electricity law on installation in the year 2019. <img src="https://www.tarea-tz.org/storage/app/media/Blog/IMG-20210427-WA0018.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p>Still, the informal trained renewable energy artisans ha...</p>
