Start of the Project “Promotion of professions and education in energy efficiency”

NGO "School of Energy Efficiency" starts the implementation of the project "Promotion of professions and education in energy efficiency".

In the conditions of dynamic technological development and constantly growing requirements for energy efficiency, the demand for technical specialists who know how to use the latest technologies and can implement this in practice is growing. In Ukraine, the shortage of such specialists in the energy and construction sectors is particularly acute. In order to effectively implement reforms in the field of energy efficiency, not only modern technologies and materials are needed, but also the knowledge and experience of qualified specialists. Unfortunately, the education infrastructure in this sector is very underdeveloped and hinders the rapid success of energy efficiency reform.

To solve this problem, NGO “School of Energy Efficiency” is launching a project “Promotion of professions and education in energy efficiency”. The project is implemented within the component “Professional Qualifications” of the project “Promotion of Energy Efficiency and Implementation of the European Energy Efficiency Directive in Ukraine” (2020-2025), implemented in Ukraine by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the Governments of Germany and Switzerland.


The main tasks

  • Develop and implement a program to promote innovative training programs to improve professional skills in the field of energy efficiency.
  • Promote the introduction of new curricula in the educational process and promote professional qualifications in the field of energy efficiency.


Target audiences

  1. Business
  2. Local governments
  3. Students and teachers of universities, vocational schools, secondary schools
  4. Energy-Innovation Hubs, already created on the basis of the leading higher educational institutions of Ukraine, selected on a competitive basis:
  • Chernivtsi National University
  • Prydniprovska State Academy of Civil Engineering and Architecture
  • A.N. Beketov Kharkov National University of Urban Economy


Advantages of cooperation

As world experience shows, the most effective way to solve the problem of training specialists, whose knowledge and skills really meet the requirements of the time, is a partnership between business and education.

Business gets specialists with the necessary professional skills, the educational institution – employment of its graduates and involvement of students in new educational programs in the direction of energy efficient technologies with real career prospects. Students get modern education and employment.

By joining the project and training, specialists will be introduced to the latest methods of building according to the European standards and will be able to provide services at a whole new level. They will find new modern competencies in the field of energy efficiency in the construction sector and will become more popular among employers.
