Due to the pandemic lockdown on 20th October we met remotely for the fourth time. Despite many COVID-19 related challenges we are facing, the project is progressing well and we are just finishing the first major task related with the industry and academic evidence that corroborates and reinforces the correlation between skills and education, and energy performance and quality.
We had an opportunity to discuss the current status of a few activities related to:
- pilot demonstrators planning,
- research steps to elaborate requirements to increase the demand for skills in energy efficiency,
- engaging the advisory board in the project,
- workshop with relevant experts to validate our first research results,
- INSTRUCT workshop organised during Sustainable Places 2020 to network with other projects dealing with energy skills.
We are now gathering best practises and further insights from different European countries to finalise work on the correlation between training and energy efficiency. We are also working on a taxonomy of current training offers for energy efficiency in the EU as well as identifying generic roles and associated qualifications and learning outcomes in energy efficiency. The initial skills and learning outcomes matrix will be produced in November.
