"Resource scout" training model for apprentices
The Mittelstandsinitiative Energiewende und Klimaschutz wants to support small and medium businesses in identifying potential ways to reduce energy consumption and implement measures that increase efficiency. To achieve this, they are offering training measures that are meant to increase the awareness of apprentices as "EnergyScouts" for energy and power efficiency. As of 2017, the Mittelstandsinitiative offers another training module about resource efficiency. Together with the VDI Center for Resource Efficiency the IZT developed the curriculum "An introduction to resource efficiency". The trainees should become qualified "ResourceScouts" and should recognize opportunities for resource conservation and efficiency in their companies, then move to document and try to improve them.
