Twenty five women energy entrepreneurs from East Africa are attending ten day training in Kenya to enhance access to energy in rural communities.
The training is also to facilitate local enterprises access to energy and create jobs.
A release from the UN Environment office in Kenya says other women entrepreneurs from Europe will also participate in the training to boost South-South Cooperation and share best practices.
The training is being held within the frame work of the implementation of the innovative environmental solutions, as recommended by the African Ministerial conference on the Environment.
The training is taking place at the Kenya Power and Lighting Company and will use 20-40 kilowatt micro-grid for hands on training.
