On-site Support services


As a part of the GIZ-SALGA SSEG capacity building initiatives, on-site support services are made available to help municipalities in their efforts to implement SSEG processes. This is at no cost to municipalities. The services will be rendered by Mr Mark Borchers from Sustainability Energy Africa (SEA) with the back-office support of Mr Faure van Schalkwyk from the Solar Training Centre, and Dr Gerhard Botha from Route 63 Consulting and Training.
