The Peruvian-German Chamber of Commerce has certified the ToT to ensure it meets global standards and enjoys international recognition.
After completing and passing the ToT, all participating educational institutions will be able to offer the programme, allowing for more specialists with first-hand knowledge of the needs and challenges faced specifically by manufacturing SMEs.
The course will make energy efficiency practices more accessible to Peruvian MSMEs, helping entrepreneurs save costs, reduce energy usage and mitigate GHG emissions related to energy use. Speaking at the launch of the ToT, Julio Cuisano, a distinguished faculty member at Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú, touted the programme as an essential tool for promoting energy efficiency within Peru's manufacturing SMEs.
Rosalía Uzátegui, Director of Strategy, Development, and Strengthening at ITP's CITE network, emphasised the project's significance in bolstering Peru's SME sector and its commitment to sustainability while Florian Theus, Head of German Development Cooperation in Peru, expressed his unwavering support for this endeavour, emphasising the strong partnership between Peru and Germany in promoting climate-friendly business practices.
