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 is now exploring the opportunity of introducing a customer-friendly energy efficiency accreditation system for building professionals ECCoPro.
The objective of such a scheme would be 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.
This project targets employed and unemployed construction professionals, as well as future construction professionals i.e. students.
About the workshop
Following up on the publication of “Construction professionals’ energy efficiency knowledge and upskilling – A short review” in September, the aim of this initial workshop is to better identify industry skills needs.
The workshop will be facilitated by Chris Chapman from the Change Exploratory.
