Here, training took many forms:
- Programme messages – often as part of a larger Conference or Exhibition
- Launches of Energy Consumption Guides, Good Practice Guides and Case Studies, or findings from R&D projects supported by the programme,
- Formal 1-day training sessions for sectors or multiple sectors, for instance:
- Energy Management and Management techniques – including Policy, Metering, monitoring & targeting (MM&T), Employee awareness, motivation and empowerment,
- Financial appraisal techniques for EE investments
- Interactive training. For instance:
- Motors & drives – specific training, with break-out sessions plus a close-out quiz, aimed at maintenance operators in the Glass sector.
- Localized “road-shows” – including joint Energy & Environmental shows (combining the things-on-offer from both the Energy programme as well as its sister Envirowise programme; linking in with the Regional Foundry and Glass monthly events.
This out-reach was seen as an integral part of the job; it represented a cost effective means of out-reach to key people from the industry.
