Itron collaborates with 2iE Foundation to provide training on water technology in Africa

Greentech Lead Africa: Itron, a provider of energy and
water resource management solutions, has partnered with the 2iE Foundation, an
international institute of higher education and research in the fields of water
and sanitation, energy and electricity, civil and mining engineering, and the
environment, for a training program for students and utility professionals in
Burkina Faso.  

The program will help students and utility professionals
learn water metering fundamentals in order to better manage the precious water
supply in Africa. Itron will share its expertise in water metering
solutions through comprehensive trainings.

“Itron will support 2iE to develop capacities and
competencies with professionals and students focusing on water resources in the
public or private sector. Itron is passionate about being good stewards of
water, life’s most vital resource. Our work with 2iE will give people in the
industry in Africa the proficiency they need to better manage and conserve
their water supply,” said Marcel Regnier, president and COO, Itron Water.

The program aims to instill valuable metering principles
so that utilities in Africa will be better equipped to face the challenges of
water supply scarcity, insufficient distribution infrastructure and an increasing
population.

Through this collaboration, Itron and
2iE will present technical content in a classroom setting to an audience of
people associated with the utility industry in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

“Itron will support 2iE to develop capacities and
competencies with professionals and students focusing on water resources in the
public or private sector. I’m very pleased Itron is willing to share its
expertise in water metering solutions through comprehensive trainings,” said
Monsieur Paul Ginies, managing director of 2iE Foundation.
