BUILD UP Skills: qualifications for craftsmen, on-site construction workers and systems installers

The construction sector is challenged to deliver energy efficient building renovations and embark on nearly zero-energy building projects. Through BUILD UP Skills IEE funding is available to prepare the ground for establishing training schemes and to encourage the continuing education of craftsmen and on-site workers. This initiative has mobilised a major effort in 30 European countries to increase the number of qualified workers and to facilitate the decision-making process for building-owners. As an example of national action, as announced in the sector press, energy skills workshops are held in October for the Irish construction sector .
