Training courses on: Local Sustainable Energy Planning; Design of renewable energy systems, including solar installations for hot water, geothermal stations, energy conversion of biomass, etc. The training has been organized as a combination of lectures and exercises (5 days) on site – i. e. full support on the part of our experts , during the initial development of the local plan and the respective energy studies and analysis for a period of 10 working days.
The training is based on a specially develop LSEP methodology (including municipal/regional EE program), whereas the user's guideline is provided to all the trainees on CD. The guideline is intended for a wide range of consumers. Following the recommendations, the stakeholders could easily develop their own energy plan and develop their municipal/regional EE program. Consulting services will be required only when specific renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies are selected.
The methodology is related with the application of software for detailed analysis of the economic potential and prognosis on the market penetration of the different types of technologies – computer model SAFIRE, developed by ESD Ltd. UK in cooperation with ESD-Bulgaria under EC funded project. The software is specially adjusted to the type of the preliminary information, which can be collected in the Bulgarian communities and provides opportunities the analysis to be based on actual and provisioned energy prices and costs.
LSEP (including the municipal/regional energy efficiency program) has been successfully applied in several Bulgarian municipalities: Kustendil, Sapareva Bania, Kocherinovo, Velingrad, Teteven and Silistra.
The newly adopted Energy Efficiency Law defines the responsibilities of the mayors for data collection and action plans in the sphere of energy (Art. 6). The suggested LSEP training provides you with the opportunity to turn this obligation into your advantage.
'ESD-Bulgaria' organizes LSEP training courses, providing the trainees with all the necessary documents and guidelines.
Certificates will be issued to the trainees who have successful passed the sustainable energy planning training course.
