Chapter 06 – Strategic qualification

For the sake of sustainable effects of the project within the participating regions strategic qualification measures had to be developed. The training modules are addressing different target groups which are either confronted and concerned with energy saving and efficiency in their everyday work in the contexts of building management, regional and town planning, project development, facility management, etc. or has a professional interest in planning and implementing projects respecting renewable energies. Training selected target groups is absolutely necessary if local or regional energy policies shall not fail. They do not only help to implement energy saving and efficiency measures but ensure also adequate handling of devices and a profound knowledge on possibilities and requirements in this context. A result of the project was, that the needs for awareness raising education, training and new skills differ a lot from country to country. Therefore it has not been possible to create standardized training modules with relevance for all partners.

Within the project a module based training programme has been developed and tested in pilot trainings. Already existing programmes had been analysed such as the European Energy Manager (training programme under the SAVE programme (IEE), focussing on executive employees of enterprises).

The following modules have been selected:

• Module 1: Basics on energy management
Module 1 introduces energy management basics, concentrating on energy consumption and highlights behavioural aspects. There is a common understanding that energy saving potential exist everywhere and in all sectors. The problem that still remains is how to make use of this (in some case minor) potential? Training module 1 is tackling this issue simply by influencing behaviour, introducing and showing means to reduce energy consumption among certain target groups. Target groups vary from inhabitants to public sector workers.
• Module 2: Planning and investment models
Module 2 deals with renewable energy, technical aspects and means to foster sustainable energy production and gain energy saving through energy efficiency. Due to more specific training content, higher prerequisites and possible investments module 2 training is targeted for people dealing with energy in their everyday work.
• Module 3: project and innovation management
Module 3 offers strategic approach on energy issues and is aimed for people responsible for regional or local development.

An overview is given in a concluding report which is available in this download section by using the following links:
