With the share of renewable energy in the overall generation mix rising across India, there are 300,000 job openings in the solar sector.
Sungrow, a leading inverter supplier for renewables, conducted a series of “Solar Inverter Technical” CSR workshops in India, which are aimed to provide a platform for the students to share creative insights towards PV system solutions, and increased their employability in the renewable energy industry.
With the share of renewable energy in the overall generation mix rising across India, there are 300,000 job openings in the solar sector for achieving its target of commissioning 175GW of renewable energy by 2020. However, the lack of employees’ trained with techniques and skills is an existing gap and ongoing challenge within India’s workforce. This gap is increasingly recognized as a barrier to realize the country’s renewable energy target.
Knowledge sharing and talent development are among the verticals of Sungrow’s CSR program. The main objective of this technical workshop is to enhance the employability of the college students by giving them a complete overview of all trends, developments and technology innovations of renewable energy, and impart our latest inverter technologies through a comprehensive curriculum comprising theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience in solar industry.
“We are pleased with the enthusiasm and interest from the students and see this as a way of help them to gain the knowledge and skills to contribute professionally to renewable-energy industry.” commented Yukun Hu, Country Manager of Sungrow India. “Sungrow will continuously fulfill corporate social responsibility to achieve a clean energy sustainable future for India.”
For over two decades, Sungrow has committed to ensuring the highest standards of social responsibility by building PV power plants, libraries and providing scholarships to a collection of school.
