Med-EcoSuRe presents a Micro-Grid pilot as a platform for education, research and training in an international seminar

1 December, 2021

On November 10th 2021, The national Engineering School of Tunis (ENIT) and the Mediterranean Renewable Energy Centre (MEDREC), took part in a seminar on L’eau, l’énergie et l’électrification dans les pays en développement” organized by La Conférence Internationale des Formations d’Ingénieurs et de Techniciens d’Expression Française (CITEF), and réseau institutionnel « Sciences de l’Ingénieur» de l’Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF).

The seminar is a hub to build a common knowledge which should lead to significant actions that CITEF could possibly support. In this context, ENIT and MEDREC team participated in a session on electrification to present “SMARTNESS micro-grid platform: The energy empowerment of communities through training and capacity building”.

During the intervention, was highlighted that the pilot micro-grid is a platform that serves for Education, Research and Training through:

  • Preparing future engineers  for professional practices through practical workshops;
  • Developing research activities that can be validated experimentally, within the framework of master and doctoral theses projects;
  • Designing and conducting a training and capacity building programme, for socio-economic operators, to be able to face technological challenges in a rapidly evolving field.

As a first action, the team of ENIT established a Micro-Grid platform which provides an environment for demonstration, training and research, targeting national actors in the field of energy, including STEG (The Tunisian Company of Electricity and Gas).
