Photos and Story by James Hill
Join Portland Community College this winter for a non-credit series focused on developing renewable energy. The series is designed for a wide range of students or professionals investigating opportunities in international development and renewable energy applications. All participants will receive a program completion award from Green Empowerment.
The International Development and Renewable Energy Series provides the fundamental knowledge required for working on a community-based renewable energy project in a developing country and insight into how people can get involved in renewable energy projects abroad with Green Empowerment or other organizations. Instructor Michel Maupoux will provide hands-on technical training, slide shows and discussion of community development issues.
The workshop will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Saturdays, Jan. 19 through Feb. 16, in Room SC 202 at the PCC Cascade Campus, 705 N. Killingsworth St. Cost is $450. For more information, contact PCC’s Community Education office at (503) 978-5143.
