Long Term Training Strategy on Energy Efficiency Assessment Skills Reports

Date

In 2009, the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism coordinated a large energy-efficiency skills research project on Australia’s highest energy-using companies: the Long-term Training Strategy on Energy Efficiency Assessment Skills. This identified skills gaps and shortages that may be limiting their ability to fully realise their energy efficiency potential. Skills gaps and shortages were found within the trades sector, as well as in key professions such as engineering, accounting, business and management.

Energy Efficiency and Engineering Education - consultation

Date

In 2011, Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism commissioned the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) to conduct a small project to identify attributes and associated learning outcomes required by engineering graduates to work effectively on energy efficiency. RET then commissioned QUT, with in-kind support from Engineers Australia, to conduct consultation to obtain industry perspectives on the findings of its previous work. This document reports on that consultation process, which:
