About the project
The goal of the EEE project is to develop a VET training able to transfer digital, green, entrepreneurial and financial skills directly impacting the development of more energyefficient buildings.
In January 2020 the EU Green Deal was announced by the EU Commission as a fundamental policy initiative. The goal is to make Europe a climate-neutral continent by protecting our natural habitat, thus enhancing the well-being of people, the planet and also the economy. In order to reach this goal, the Green Deal seeks to bring important innovations also in the construction industry.
40% of our energy consumption is due to buildings and renovating buildings will help people to cut their energy bills and energy use. By using energy more efficiently and thereby consuming less, Europeans can lower their energy bills, help protect the environment and reduce the EU’s reliance on external suppliers of oil and gas. Energy efficiency needs to be improved throughout the full energy chain, from production to final consumption.
So, it is crucial that the technical professionals have the tools to improve energy efficiency, not just for customers who request it, but also in their workplaces and to increase the competitiveness of their businesses. As a result, the adoption of energy efficiency measures for buildings has created a strong demand for digital and green skills for smart metering and home automation technologies. Technicians in this field apart from technical proficiency, require a combination of digital and environmental skills to respond to the installation, maintenance, and programming of smart metering and energy efficiency systems. Moreover, they need entrepreneurial and financial skills to better manage their business and to be able to propose a clear and comprehensive proposal to customers.
The Erasmus+ KA2 Energy Efficiency Expert project addresses all the above.
Who is it for?
This project is for trainers, consultants, coaches of SMEs/enterprises and engineers and architects, technicians (electricians or surveyors) and small and medium-sized entrepreneurs in the construction sector.

EEE project step by step
The kick-off meeting
On the 27th of November, the Erasmus+ KA2 Energy Efficiency Expert project held its online Kick-off meeting. During the meeting a project overview with all the activities that will be conducted the next 25 months were analysed and emphasis was given on the first output and the next steps of implementation.
Intellectual Output 1 (IO 1)
IO1’s main intent was to define a professional profile that could easily conjugate technical knowledge / skills / competences and management / financial skills / mindset. The IO1 aimed at taking into consideration Directive 2012/27/EU on Energy Efficiency that includes training and education, such as energy advisory programmes, that lead to the application of energy-efficient technology or techniques and have the effect of reducing end-users’ energy consumption.
Results of IO 1
- 10 EEE Profiles,
- 22 Macro Activities (divided into 117 Activities and 72 Micro Activities),
- 52 Knowledge,
- 27 Hard Skills,
- 15 Soft Skills,
- 37 Competences,
- 16 Tags (with 132 possible sub-categorizations).
Intellectual Output 2 (IO 2)
Between the 8th-9th of June 2022, the consortium of the KA2 Erasmus+ project: Energy Efficiency Expert (EEE) conducted the second transnational meeting in a hybrid form. Some partners joined online, and some in Slovenia.
Results of IO 2
This intellectual output consists of creating the methodology and the content of the training course. The partnership developed a training dedicated to trainers in order to multiply their ability to transfer energy efficiency knowledge and innovative financial instruments knowledge to the construction sector professionals. To reach this aim, two main sections were identified:
1. Section 1: Learning methodology definition (Syllabus) that outlines:
- Who is the target of the training
- A schematic introduction of the competencies transferred
- A description of the length and tools needed to complete the training
- An indication of further materials to deepen the knowledge
- A description of the validation system
2. Section 2: Training content creation that covers three main topics:
- Technical/digital content:
– Environmental sustainability (green building)
– Automation and control (smart building)
– Cost-effectiveness (cost-optimal building)
- Entrepreneurial content (EntreComp framework)
- Financial content
On the 27th – 28th of February 2023, the Erasmus+ KA2 Energy Efficiency Expert project hold a transnational project meeting in Torino, Italy, hosted by Politecnico Di Torino. Multiplier Events that took place in the member countries of the project were presented at the meeting.
The Multiplier Event in Slovenia was held on February 21st 2023 at the Jožef Stefan Institute, Reactor Centre Podgorica, Brinje 40, 1262 Dol pri Ljubljani.
