Join the Adventure

Hi! My name is Christina Skaatan. I’m a 28-year-old
Norwegian Engineer. In all of 2019 I am combining my two
passions; Travel and Solar Power! For a full year I am doing
my own Solar Training Journey. I will travel all around the
world alone, on a low budget, and hopefully gain a unique
and broad expertise in the field.

My goal is to visit solar projects, solar parks, BIPV
buildings, industry, attend conferences, volunteer and visit
research facilities. Simultaneously, I will build on my
theoretical knowledge through online solar courses.

I am starting in Africa in February (2019), and stopping by
Dubai, before heading to Costa Rica and Central America. I
will be spending May and June in Europe, and travel
around in Asia from July (2019) - January (2020)

During this year I will be Glava Energy Center’s travelling
correspondent, and they will be helping me make contacts
on projects I can visit around the world. I hope people and
companies out there are willing to show me around and
teach me about their projects.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you know about any cool projects I should visit!

The journey will be documented on this travel blog,
instagram and as travel-letters and videos on GEC’s own

Wish me luck!
