Center for Education and Raising Awareness of Energy Efficiency – Energis has successfully implemented the first training program for ‘Energy Efficiency Management’ within the framework of the project “Support to Adult Education in B&H”, which is a joint initiative of GIZ and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation – SDC.

The three-day training program is designed to enrich the scope of competences currently employed and unemployed to provide the possibility that when applying for a position demonstrate special qualifications as an additional competitive advantage.

Employees who are already employed by companies in other workplaces through additional training are trained to perform internal audits (energy efficiency assessments), record the situation and propose measures to reduce energy consumption. It is estimated that only in companies and building institutions in Bosnia and Herzegovina by implementing energy efficiency measures, which do not require any investment, can achieve approximately 15% savings in energy consumption on an annual basis.

The three day training was successfully completed by 16 participants during the period in December 2012, in two locations (Hotel, Sarajevo and Center for Energy Efficiency, Pazarić). The training consisted of three one-day modules:

– Module I: Basic concepts and importance of energy efficiency
– Module II: Energy management and walk-through energy audit
– Module III: The basic elements and techniques for the evaluation of energy efficiency measures

The modules are designed as an optimal combination of ex cathedra lectures and group or individual work of the participants. Top ratings and comments of the participants are the best proof that the training is implemented at a very high level.

Due to the exceptional interest and social benefits of such training, Energis it is planned to implement this training in other cities of Bosnia and Herzegovina, especially the training of staff in municipalities, schools, hospitals / health centers, as well as public and private companies / organizations.
