About the ECCoPro Project
As the lack of investment in skills at all levels of the construction industry supply chain represents one of the main risks to large scale energy renovation in Ireland, the Irish Green Building Council, in conjunction with Ireland’s main construction professional bodies, is exploring the opportunity of introducing a customer-friendly energy efficiency accreditation system for building professionals ECCoPro.
The objective of the scheme is to support closer alignment between professionals, and to allow end-users to clearly identify construction professionals who have upskilled in energy efficiency related skills, thus incentivising professionals to upskill in the area.
About the workshop
Following up on the publication of “Construction professionals’ energy efficiency knowledge and upskilling – A short review” and on the October’s workshop, the aim of this meeting is 1. To reach a final agreement on key energy efficiency skill set for each profession and 2. To collect participants’ feedback on ways to assess building professionals prior learning.
