  • Supporting individuals in acquiring and developing basic skills and key competences in the energy field.

In order to support project partners respective territories in the transformation of their local energy sector specifically in terms of human resources, employment and training offer, WATT ELSE project partnership has produced the following main deliverables:

  1. Analysis of local energy challenges, needs, energy strategies and legal supporting framework.

  2. State of the art of the energy sector jobs and competences based on a survey distributed to local private and public stakeholders. The purpose is to understand main stakes in each territory concerning energy sector needs.

  3. Create a collection of existing regional (national) training paths related to energy sector in each territory to cross-matching it with the identified job profiles.

As a result, a website containing regional training paths has been created. Link website.
