Training Opportunity: Reporting on Solar Energy and its Productive Use in Uganda

Training Opportunity: Reporting on Solar Energy and its Productive Use in Uganda

About the course

The growing demand for energy in Uganda, a challenge shared by many African nations, necessitates the exploration of sustainable and cost-effective solutions. Renewable energy sources, particularly solar power, offer a promising answer.

While solar technology provides solutions for basic lighting needs, Productive Use of Solar Energy (PUSE) extends its application to economic activities, facilitating development in Ugandan communities. PUSE can enhance agricultural practices, create employment opportunities, and generate income, contributing to poverty reduction and economic growth.

Despite the growing global interest in PUSE, with East Africa emerging as a significant market for solar applications, public understanding and adoption of sustainable off-grid solar energy in the region remain limited. A lack of clear information, the presence of misconceptions, and inconsistent messaging contribute to this challenge.

Delivered by ACME and supported by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, this specialised workshop aims to equip Ugandan journalists with the necessary knowledge and skills to address this gap. Through the creation of clear, accurate, and impactful reporting, participants
will play a critical role in promoting Uganda’s transition towards a sustainable energy future.

Why apply?

  • Deepen your understanding of renewable energy technologies and their potential impact on Uganda’s development.

  • Gain the skills to critically analyse and report on PUSE initiatives, challenges, and opportunities.

  • Learn innovative storytelling techniques to craft compelling narratives on this critical topic.

  • Network with fellow journalists, experts, and stakeholders in the renewable energy sector.

  • Fully-funded opportunity: Tuition and any accommodation costs incurred during the workshop
    will be covered by ACME.
