Lastly, dedicated trainings on information and energy management system and on smart grid technologies in close collaboration with existing EDC training center will contribute to enhancing EDC' staff awareness on energy efficiency and renewable energy as well as energy management capacities on the long term. These activities will be conducted by EDC with the support of a variety of service providers, equipment suppliers and/or contractors to be recruited along the Project implementation with the support of the TA by PIC. In addition, the consultant will support EDC to prepare and procure equipment for testing laboratory. In parallel to all these components, an ambitious capacity building plan will be set to train and accompany EDC towards their objective of running efficiently a modem grid in Cambodia.
