Retrofitting of Public Buildings through Green Technologies & Processes

The Re-fit Project is a project funded by the EU in Lebanon and implemented by Fondation Diane, Arcenciel, Università di Genova, and ICU (Istituto per la Cooperazione Universitaria Onlus). It aims to support and promote renewable energy and energy efficiency (RE/EE) technologies in Lebanon by providing hands-on tools, coaching, and mentorship to enable flexible energy production, transmission and consumption, allowing for a more cost-effective use of renewables and empowering a new generation of energy consumers. Fondation Diane launched a call for Solar Energy companies and conducted the delivery of training and online support services to 15 eco-entrepreneurs on the GBM for their businesses.

Re-Fit Workshops 2021-2022 at RayMondo

Training & coaching support were provided to green eco-entrepreneurs innovating in the renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors, to help them develop their innovative business ideas into viable green business models.

Re-Fit GBM 2021

In 2021, 10 training sessions and 2 one-on-one coaching support sessions were delivered to green entrepreneurs innovating in the renewable energy and energy efficiency sector. 9 SMEs were enrolled in the Green Business Model Workshop and were given support and constant guidance by mentors and trainers to build their sustainable green business model and pitch their ideas.

Re-Fit GBM 2022

In 2022, we were glad to gather 12 green, young, and motivated entrepreneurs and assist them – with the help of Fondation Diane certified trainers – in developing their cutting-edge projects in the field of renewable energy & energy efficiency and taking their eco-ideas to the next level! The interactive workshop was concluded by an interesting Q&A session about the challenges, the solutions, and the future of the energy sector in Lebanon, as well as the distribution of green certificates of attendance.
