The overall goal of the EU funded project „Taking European EnergyManagers to next efficiency levels by implementing energy audit recommendations – EUREMnext“ is to contribute to environmental protection and competitiveness in businesses by increasing the quality of energy audits and the rate of implementation of energy efficiency measures. This shall be achieved by providing trainings to increase the number of qualified and accredited energy experts.
The project will expand the well established EUREM European EnergyManager training program to 6 new countries and train more persons to become qualified experts in the field of Energy. The trainig will also be enriched with 4 new modules in e-learning format (on mobility, Industry 4.0., energy audit standards and process, company energy culture), with 1 enhanced module with more emphasis on financial topics and a new practice module. Implementation support activities for trainees and other energy managers are also planned, to coach and support these experts beyond the training scope.
The Energy Institute for Businesses (EIW) and the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKÖ) are responsible for the implementation of the alumni survey, the draft of some of the new course modules, for designing additional support activities and testing them in Austria as well as for coaching and supporting the EUREM providers in the new countries.
