Catapult develops new training for Peace Corps

We’re excited to announce that Catapult Design was selected by the Peace Corps to design and lead a training program for their staff and volunteers in Costa Rica around renewable energy technologies for low-income communities.  As part of the program, Catapult will:

1. Review the Peace Corp’s existing training materials in Costa Rica;

2. Develop and conduct a three-day workshop in Costa Rica around financing models for a host of renewable energy technologies (e.g cookstoves, flashlights, solar home systems, biodigesters);

3. Develop and deliver two online training courses focused on photovoltaic and hydroelectric solutions appropriate to Peace Corps communities.
