Training on Renewable Energy was held in Kitakyushu City (Japan).

JICA training course for young leaders on "Renewable Energy" was conducted from 26 November to 13 December 2017 in Japan. In total, we had 21 participants from five Central Asian and Caucasus countries: Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Thanks to this course, we were able to learn about the overall energy situation in the world and Japan, as well as about the policy of the Japanese government regarding the distribution of the share of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) after the Great Eastern Earthquake. We visited various facilities: a micro hydro power plant, an energy park and a battery station. One of the memorable moments was acquaintance with the project on supporting agriculture through the introduction of micro-hydropower plants and other renewable energy sources in rural cooperatives in Oita Prefecture. I was impressed that Japan is implementing RES projects in parallel, increasing the energy efficiency of the facilities. Also, a special impression was left by lectures on an integrated approach to reducing carbon dioxide and other harmful emissions from thermal power plants to the atmosphere, while increasing the efficiency at stations. Finally, I want to note that I was impressed by the special preparedness and organization of the Japanese side in conducting our courses.
