Improving Energy Access in Remote Communities in Peru with Off-Grid Solar

Students learn intercultural competencies and global skills through a 15-week course involving virtual mobility experiences, culminating in an immersive 11-day physical mobility experience working on a clean energy project in a rural, off-grid community in Peru. During the classroom/virtual mobility experience, students strengthen intercultural competencies, perform international project planning, and learn about Peruvian language and culture. During the clean energy project in Peru, students work as a team alongside local people, using hands-on skills learned through their programs at NAIT to bring energy access to people in need by installing solar photovoltaics, energy storage, and LED lighting.
