DIREKT partners in Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados collaborated to run a two-day workshop on renewable energy with emphasis on photovoltaic (PV) and fuel cell technologies in Trinidad from 24 - 25 May 2012. The main objective of the workshop was to provide hands-on training in selected renewable energy technologies to stakeholders inTrinidad and Tobago and the wider Caribbean.

After the technical sessions, there was a practical demonstration exercise providing details of the operation of renewable energy technologies, mainly photovoltaic and wind. This was followed by a study visit to the Fuel Cell Materials Research Laboratory in the Department of Physics, University of the West Indies, St Augustine Campus. During the session, participants learnt how membranes for fuel cells are tested and were introduced to the process of fabricating and testing fuel cells.

The workshop targeted professionals working in renewable energy, the oil and gas industry, personnel from the Ministry of Energy and Energy Affairs, Trinidad and Tobago, and undergraduate and postgraduate students from various universities across Trinidad and Tobago and the wider Caribbean.
