The United States Agency for International Development has awarded a $10 million contract to Arizona State University. The school will lead a group higher education institutions and service providers on a worldwide plan to clean energy training and education.
The global effort will be led by the College of Technology and Innovation on ASU’s Polytechnic campus in Mesa.
“The project will help to create curricula around the operation and maintenance of decentralized clean energy technologies,” said Mitzi Montoya, vice provost and dean of the College of Technology and Innovation.
ASU’s role is focused on delivering training in the areas of solar and micro-grid technologies in conjunction with consortium partners Appalachian State University and Green Empowerment, who are responsible for training in wind energy and micro-hydro, respectively.
