The Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS) said on March 19 it will form a regional training centre in renewable energy under an agreement with the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

The bank will provide 1 million SGD (over 800,000 USD) for the training of 150 policy makers, to be selected by the ADB, at the centre every year during a period of 2 years.

President of SEAS Edwin Khnew said, the project will help improve the competency of senior officials of 46 ADB’s country members.
