Training Resource Efficiency and Energy Efficiency in the Building Sector - “Training EIP”
The project on “Qualification of Key Actors on Energy Efficiency in the Building Sector”, or simply KABEE project, aims to support China’s path towards a low carbon urban development by providing key actors in Chinese cities with German know-how and experiences through training. One of the training modules (Module 6) focuses on German experiences on energy efficiency gains in urban key sectors through eco-industrial parks.
Main features and components
The project helps familiarise leading policy-makers and administrators in local authorities as well as public and private sector organisations involved in the implementation of policies with knowledge of applications and measures in the area of building energy efficiency and climate change mitigation.
The project combines four approaches to ensure a successful and sustainable knowledge transfer for higher energy efficiency in Chinese cities: training for trainers, development of training courses and local training formats, study tours, and briefing on the inclusion of buildings in the carbon market. The training courses and local training formats consist of six modules. One of which, Module 6, focuses on German experiences on energy efficiency gains in urban key sectors through eco-industrial parks.
The training on German Experiences to obtain Energy Efficiency Gains in Cities through Eco-Industrial Park (EIP) Development contains:
- Industrial Parks – Motor of Industrial Development
- GIZ Proposed Criteria for Sustainable Industrial Areas
- Int. and German Practice of EIP/SIA
- Methodology to Introduce Energy and Resource Efficiency in Industrial Areas
- Factor of Success – The Multilevel Approach
- Changing Park Management towards Sustainability
- Introducing Networking for Energy and Resource Efficiency
- Implementing Measures on Company Level
- Available Knowhow and Support
Training needs in Chinese cities have been identified in thorough consultations between all partners. German and Chinese knowledge brokers have designed training curricula and formats. More than 2,000 people took part in various training occasions. Chinese trainers attended six seminars. They act as multipliers for transferring German expertise into Chinese cities.
