Jointly developed by the World Bank Institute Climate Change (WBICC) Practice and the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP), this structured learning program is one component of the program “Climate Friendly Energy Efficiency Policies across South East Europe,” which is a capacity building program focusing on Energy Efficiency in South East Europe (SEE) funded by the Austrian government.

While the learning program responds to an articulated need from SEE countries, it can also be expanded to countries in other regions and assist various stakeholders in developing countries to gain a better understanding of the improved delivery of energy efficiency (EE) services to public buildings.

The Structured Learning Program for Energy Efficiency in Public Buildings equips different stakeholders with technical and program management skills, tools and knowledge on the “how” of identifying, developing and implementing EE programs in public buildings. This course consists of eight modules with multiple lessons in each, presenting key concepts and providing opportunities to apply and discuss them. All modules use multimedia presentations and offer selected readings. Quizzes, research exercises and case studies help to broaden participants’ understanding of the topics in a proactive way.

This learning product was developed thanks to the financial support of the governments of Spain and Switzerland through the CF-Assist Trust Fund.

Target Audience:
Staff from central administrations and municipalities involved in public buildings and energy; energy service providers (engineering/consulting firms, contractors) who bid and undertake EE improvement programs in public buildings; designated national authorities, which are responsible for promoting the development of Clean Development Mechanism projects; and researchers within NGOs and the academic community.
