Training on Renewable Energy solutions and energy Efficiency in reTROFITting (REE_TROFIT)

Download PDFDownload PDF
A major bottleneck for increasing energy performance of existing building stock as foreseen in the EPBD & its recast lies in the shortage of local qualified and/or accredited retrofitting experts, the main reasons being that Building professionals are: a) still not enough aware of the urgency for implementing low-energy retrofitting techniques for energy saving based on EPBD requirements. b) insufficiently trained on the available low-energy techniques and technologies for retrofitting c) not enough prepared to convincingly propose and properly apply available most up-to-date techniques and technologies for retrofitting d) they show limited motivation for (re)qualification programmes unless proper incentives are put in place. The REE_TROFIT project will use in-house know-how and experiences of participants in carrying out vocational courses on innovative eco-building technologies. They will improve the available materials and develop new advanced tools in order to set up and implement a large-scale educational scheme in 6 MS for training more than 450 building professionals and by fostering exchange of knowledge and best practices among stakeholders.


  • Disseminate best practices and practical tools for easing the institutionalization and implementation of vocational courses on RES and energy efficiency in retrofitting in the partnering countries.
  • - Carry out institutionalized vocational courses based on the defined training model and resources in each participating country with at least 450 trained and certified professionals.
  • Extend the REE_TROFIT training model and resources outside the consortium.
  • Raise awareness of regional, national and european policy makers and provide suggestions on how to incentivize, debottleneck the local retrofitting markets for full implementation of the EPBD.
  • Implement an exploitation strategy for assuring the sustainability and massive replication of training beyond the project duration
