Many recent studies have documented Haiti ’s rapidly growing employment demand in the green energy fields, which has been particularly strong in the Metropolitan and rural area, Green energy is defined here as including all industries contributing to the development of energy efficient buildings and communities (including power generation, energy storage, and transportation systems.) This demand represents a broad range of employment opportunities in the private and public sectors with educational needs spanning short-term technician-level training to bachelor’s degrees and beyond. Haiti Energie, S.A. in partnership with diversity energy companies and organization has been conducting on-going Green tech cluster meetings, an intensive focus of which has been green-energy workforce development since 2010. With participation from all sectors, we recognized the need for education, labor, government, and industry to work together to develop an appropriate workforce development strategy that would simultaneously meet industry needs and address the Haiti ’s social and environmental goals. The outcome of this was the creation of a Green Energy Education Campaign Through the Haiti Mobile Solar Academy.
Vision of Haiti Mobile Solar Academy and Workforce Opportunities
The vision of this project is to create a National green energy workforce development programs. For the first three months in partnership with St Thomas Thomas University we are focusing on the development of a training programs for entry-level private-sector technicians, primarily for the design and installation of solar energy systems.
Justification of the need
Different analysis from different ’s green technology industries in Haiti reveal:
1- A substantiates existence of a large workforce demand in the public sector and utilities, and the demand for higher level training.
2- Conform industry workforce demand employers’ need for a range of skilled workers, from entry-level and materials-handling positions like sales representatives and solar installers to highly skilled solar designers and engineers. studied are predicted to grow in upcoming years resulting in about 10, 000 new jobs.
3- The Plan articulates two Workforce Education and Training Strategies to ensure that Haiti ’s workforce is “trained and engaged to provide the human capital necessary to achieve Haiti’s energy efficiency and demand side management potential” by 2025
Goals and Objectives.
Haiti Energie, S.A. intends to create a national partnership to provide the training necessary to meet workforce demand in the green energy fields and to continue to attract green energy investment to the region of Haiti. Special emphasis will be placed on recruiting, mentoring, and placing local youth in green energy jobs, including identifying and grooming talented candidates for management and administrative positions.
The three-year strategy includes a detailed work plan, with specific tasks in each of the following four categories:
1) Identification of Local and International Employer Demand
2) Development of Coordinated Educational & Training Curriculum (Career Pathway)
3) Recruitment of Students & Industry Partners
4) Placement: Translation to Internships/ Apprenticeships/ Jobs
Solar Energy, Government and Businesses
Several years ago, there was not much interest in solar technology in Haiti. Today, businesses and government increasingly regard it as a cost-effective alternative energy generator with huge potential to help deliver lower-cost energy, encourage job creation and stimulate local economies. Haitian community development and official leaders are working to develop regional innovation clusters focused on the Cleantech sector. The government is pushing wind and solar power to increase the renewable share of total energy consumption from 2.7 percent in 2004 to 60 percent by 2020. In addition, installed capacity of photovoltaic (PV) power is to increase from 16.7 MW in 2016- to 350 MW by 2020. In addition to this, a couple weeks ago the president of Haiti reconsidered its project to electrify the whole of the national territory in only 24 months in that plan is included renewable energy (solar and wind). Solar’s increasing importance is demonstrated by the Haitian government’s support for solar. For example, the government recognizes the value of public-private partnerships in the development of solar projects. Les irois project is one example of this. In the next few months more than 57 renewable energy projects will conclude in total , which will add more than 200 MWp of power capacity.
Solar Energy and new Finance Law
In the new finance law 2017-2018 the government announces a revolution. Renewable energies will be removed from customs duty. By October 2017 all solar panels and
solar batteries, solar air conditioning, solar street lighting, solar lamps, kit solar, solar refrigerators, solar inverters, solar pump systems, solar freezers, solar fans, and solar generators will be customs free.
This awareness of solar’ s potential will likely the removal of customs duty on solar and wind product has the potential to promote increase customer uptake that can result in greater utilization of renewable energy sources and significant savings in the country’s energy bill, job creation. The possibility of importing the parts for solar equipment duty-free and then assembling them locally may positively impact the price at which the energy-saving devices are sold to consumers. The removal of the duty also supports the Government’s overall policy of encouraging energy conservation and the use of the most up-to-date and energy-efficient technologies.
Solar Energy and Training
As more people are starting to discover the advantages of this sort of clean energy, there is an increased demand for certified and trained professionals. So also, looking after the various components of solar energy installations, seeing to its repair and maintenance and installation is in demand now, this is why, to handle such mechanisms and equipment, the installers need to have proper solar training from a deemed university or certify institution. Becoming trained in solar energy technology is a great way for roofers, electricians, contractors, builders and architects to expand their professional skill sets and grow their business.
Haiti Energie, S.A. and St Thomas University Partnership
Haiti Energie, LLC. has partnered with St Thomas University https://www.stu.edu/science/About/Solar- to deliver Online courses such as “Solar Electric Design and Installation ,” which is required for all Haiti Energie, SA/LLC employees, independents contractors, technicians , sales representative or consultants.
A certification from St Thomas University will distinguish the professional installers from the crowd. It demonstrates professional competence in the field of solar energy, and gives employers and customers a degree of certainty that you have voluntarily met the high standards and qualifications as a professional. St Thomas University’s solar training courses offer a combination of flexible online instruction available at anytime, and hands-on installation training for real world experience.
MULTIPLE LEVELS, MULTIPLE FORMATS
We offer both entry level and advanced solar courses, as well as “Mastery” courses that are designed to bring individuals from absolute beginners to knowledgeable professionals in one course. All of these courses can be taken online.
Haiti Mobile Solar Academy
Based on the St Thomas University solar courses we are about to create the first Haiti Mobile Solar Academy. The solar Mobile academy will be a Mobile Training Unit’s comprise of a 40” container, well equipped with:
Carbon-steel or sandwich panel structure.

Solar Energy Training Curriculum
Solar training includes mainly three parts. One deals with design aspects, the second with installation and the third with sales. This sort of training has a lot of advantages. Firstly, students will be well educated in all the new concepts so that they can provide customers with such services that are worth their money. Secondly, their certification will be a means to win over their competition Thus, it can be said the solar panel installation training is a means of employment. We would like to cover also a different aspect of Cleantech trade and investment education including:
• Feasibility Study
• Sourcing Management Talent & Organizational design
• Financing and Structure
• Construction & Implementation
• Star-up, Training & Testing
• Facility Ramp-up
• Commercial Operation
• System Upgrades ( those could be a great tool to compete and increase export)
The Haiti Energie, S.A. Network Partnership
The Haiti Energie, S.A. partners are well positioned to promote green energy workforce development in Haiti .
