Energy institute HRVOJE POŽAR


A new cycle of the Young Energy Europe program has started

The Young Energy Europe (YEE) program announces the return of education for Energy Scouts. This unique initiative trains young professionals across Europe to identify and implement energy-efficient solutions in their communities and work environments.

Applications are open, and after the education held from October 22 to 24 in Zagreb, the participants will present their energy-saving project, after which they will receive the qualification of 'Energy Scout'. Researchers from EIHP, experts in energy efficiency and renewable energy sources, participate in the education as lecturers: Vesna Bukarica, PhD, Andro Bačan and Marko Bišćan.

The project offers a unique opportunity to acquire practical knowledge and skills in energy efficiency. Through a series of interactive workshops, participants learn how to identify energy-intensive processes, develop solutions to reduce energy consumption and implement sustainable practices that will benefit their companies and organizations directly. "This program is more than education - an investment in our future. We at the German-Croatian Chamber of Industry and Commerce have advocated sustainable development for many years. With this program, we want to encourage young experts to learn more about energy efficiency, renewable energy sources, energy management in companies, and climate and environmental protection," said project manager Daniela Buntak.

Companies and institutions participating in the program also have multiple benefits. The program enables detailed verification of resource and energy consumption, knowledge transfer, and concrete energy and cost savings through practical projects. Additionally, it allows comparison with other companies in terms of sustainable production, strengthening competitiveness and achieving CO2 neutrality.

Young Energy Europe projects often precisely meet the requirements for continuous improvement in accordance with ISO 50001 and 14001 standards, EMAS standards and customer requirements. In addition, the growing importance of sustainability and environmental aspects positively affects company image, marketing and employee loyalty, while the program measurably contributes to a cleaner industry. Companies can register up to five participants for this free training.

The project in Croatia is implemented by the German-Croatian Chamber of Industry and Commerce, and is financed as part of the European Climate Protection Initiative (EUKI) of the Federal Ministry of Economy and Climate Protection (BMWK).
