Iraqi participants were provided with the tools and methods to enhance efficiency and safety in the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity.

The workshop was part of the Department of State-funded Iraqi Energy Reliability, Survivability, and Resiliency Program, which supports the U.S.-Iraq Strategic Framework Agreement (SFA), with the specific goal of facilitating the Government of Iraq’s capabilities to deliver essential services to its citizens.
