800 Municipal and University Staff Will Get Training in Ankara Within the Scope of YEVDES

Eight hundred people who will participate in the training within the scope of Technical Assistance of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency for Municipalities and Universities (YEVDES) to be organized in Ankara were determined as a result of the applications made through the Online Application Tool, which started the dates between 25 November 2019 – 27 December 2019 basvuru.yevdes.org

Within the scope of the training program, which is planned to start in September 2020, energy efficiency and renewable energy practices and investments will be covered. Each training will be held in classes for a maximum of 25 people. For eight weeks, each week, four training groups of 25 people will be trained for seven days. Travel, accommodation and food expenses of the participants will be covered by the project budget.
