Let there be light: new approach to youth solar training in developing countries
Solar energy has several, well-known advantages. Its huge potential and the recent rush of clean technologies ignited a boom around PV panels everywhere, including developing countries. However, contrary to what most think it is not only the high prices, but the failure of an adequate transfer of technologies, a lack of education, which has slowed down the adoption of solar panels in developing countries. Low quality and improper installations have led to a belief that PV do not work or that they are not good enough, depriving these countries of a great opportunity to empower themselves energetically.
