UNIVERSITY OF RWANDA DRIVES TO STRENGTHEN ITS RELATIONS WITH PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS
The University of Rwanda is part of a consortium SUCCEED Network of five East African Universities and the University of Alicante (Spain) supported by the EU through EDULINK II. The objective of the project is to promote East African university campuses as “living laboratories” for sustainability energy and efficiency. University campuses and Higher Education Institutions in general have a great potential to become key players to promote sustainability and energy efficiency, starting with their own campuses.
One of the University of Rwanda’s strategies is to strengthen its relations with Public Institutions through research, consultancy, internships, seminars and lectures. In the framework of partnership between the University of Rwanda and the industry, the Department of Physics has started a dialogue with the industry by organizing a series of lectures, the first one of its type starting with the Rwanda Energy Groups.
It is in that framework that the CEO of the Rwanda Energy Group Limited (REG Ltd) has delivered this Wednesday 16th November 2016, a lecture on “Recent Developments and challenges on Energy Access and Energy Efficiency in Rwanda”.
Participants were lecturers of Physics Department, members of the Energy Efficient Unit from different UR campus and students. During his talk, the CEO REG took the opportunity of informing participants that REG has recently created a Unit of Research which will work closely with university researchers on various topics related to energy sector.
