Mandela Washington Fellowship
Admore Chiumia holds a degree in Renewable Energy Technologies (RETs) from Mzuzu University, Malawi, and certificates in Project Management, and Monitoring and Evaluation. He has over four years' experience in RETs in areas of research, business, and entrepreneurship. He works as a coordinator with Renewable Malawi in the SE4All project, where he coordinates civil-society awareness, advocacy, and the implementation of energy hubs. These are rural off-grid systems which community-based organizations are trained to operate for business activities like barbering, phone-charging, renting solar lights, making briquettes, and broadcasting videos and soccer. Admore also owns Lowosi Electrical and Energy Services Company, which sells solar lights at affordable prices, and designs and installs RET systems. Upon completion of Fellowship, Admore wants to continue selling Pico solar products and conducting research and development. He aims to continue designing, installing and assessing the market of RET systems to spearhead appropriate technology transfer in Malawian communities.
