Training workshops & webinars

Training workshops and webinars were held throughout 2019-2020. Trainings were one to two-day, in-person events intended primarily for Energy Managers and energy engineers. Webinars were online and normally about 1-2 hours. 

In workshops, participants learned and practiced an approach for how to analyse and communicate how energy efficiency projects contribute to the company's value proposition, cost and risk reduction. A toolkit including analysis and communication tools and templates was provided. Then participants played a Serious Game, which is based on a real case, to practice what they’ve learned.

Webinars provided an overview of the concepts, how to assess multiple benefits, and highlighted tools including the Serious Game to help companies assess and quantify multiple benefits in projects. Many of the webinars were recorded and available via YouTube.
