GE looks to develop renewable energy skills in Ethiopia

(May 16, (CNBC))--(General Electric (GE) and the Addis Ababa Institute of Technology (AAiT) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to "frame an ongoing collaboration" with the aim of "enabling capacity development programs focused on renewable energy."

In a news release on Monday, GE added that the ultimate goal was to develop a renewables "center of excellence" at the AAiT. The center would, among other things, act as both a learning hub for undergraduates and a research incubator for graduates.

GE said that it had been working with the AAiT since the end of last year to develop and implement programs focused on skills development. In March this year, engineers from GE Renewable Energy Hydro gave seminars to AAiT students and staff on hydro turbines and generators. Read more from CNBC »
