From the 2nd to the 7th. August 2009, the "Develop Solar!" Seminar took place in Kampala, the capital of Uganda. Five leading German solar companies trained 60 Ugandan solar companies, banks, telecommunication and electrical companies for a week. The aim was to impart knowledge on technology and financing, as to develop larger solar projects. In the course of the training, the German partners offer a so-called "coaching", in which they support the Ugandan companies in project development.
