SETatWork Training for EU ETS Companies

SETatWork has an emphasis on helping to improve energy efficiency in companies covered by the European Union Emission Trading scheme.

One of the key activities related to this is the training of EU ETS companies. In order to help us identify the training needs of the relevant industries, in November 2008 we created an online Training Needs Assessment questionnaire.

On the basis of the results from the questionnaire, Training Packages are in the process of being created and handouts will be added to this page as they become available. The Training Package Slide Sets are available from your national SETatWork Partner on request and were used during the SETatWork Training Workshops.

Presentations from the Training Workshops can be found by clicking on the link below.

Upgrading energy management systems to EN16001
Denmark, Copenhagen
Scope: Introduction of EN16001 implies modification of management systems implemented in Danish industries who have used the national standard DS2403 to date.

Target Audience: Danish industries with certified energy management systems (i.e. All manufacturing industries included in EU-ETS).
SETatWork Logo15 December 2009
Energy management systems
Hedensted, Denmark
A Danish training event on Energy Management Systems took place on 15 December 2009. The training was a joint event with www.greennetwork.dk

A topic of great interest throughout European industry is the recently launched standard for certified energy management systems EN16001. The standard is the first of two outlining the framework for working systematically with energy improvements within an organisation (ISO50001 is scheduled to follow in 2011).

A training event on Energy Management Systems took place in December during the COP15 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Though Danish ETS member organisations have worked with certified energy management systems since the launch of the national Danish Standard in 2001, the event revealed a significant interest in the new framework from both ETS and non-ETS members.

Designed to fit into the design of the most recognized system for the management systems, as ISO14001 or ISO9001, the new framework for energy management systems may be introduced to most manufacturing organisations with limited costs. In turn, integrating a lean and efficient system for controlling energy costs and reducing consumption with existing systems in place is a profitable business.

The business case is attractive and relevant both for ETS members experiencing the future challenge for compliance as well as for any other industry that seeks a practical tool to keep on track for managing emissions and operating costs.

Energy efficiency measures for German ETS industries
KfW, Frankfurt, Germany


At the end of February 2010, a SETatWork training workshop, organised by KEWOG Städtebau GmbH in cooperation with KfW Bankengruppe, took place in Frankfurt. The workshop aimed at informing ETS companies about EU energy policies and latest developments in the carbon market on the one hand and at showing best practice of energy saving energy management systems and technologies on the other hand.

In the morning session, the Copenhagen Accord as well as the amended EU Emissions Trading Directive were analysed and discussed. In the afternoon session experts gave insights into innovative energy processes and technologies like heat recovery, combined heat and power, energy management systems and reduction potential of compressed air leakages.

The workshop was well attended by around 50 participants and provided the ETS industry a platform to learn and discuss about carbon markets as well as about innovative energy efficient technologies in industrial processes.

Energy Smart Business
Göteborg, Sweden
Scope: Energy efficiency in industry, mapping and control, and carbon markets

Target audience:
Municipal energy and climate advisors and representatives of regional energy agencies.

The overall ambition of the meeting was to give the municipal energy and climate advisors in west Sweden an understanding of how industries work with energy efficiency measures both technically and economically and thereby give them more communication tools in their meetings with small and mediumsized companies. SETatWork was presented as one of the "tools" that companies can utilize in their work with energy efficiency and reduction of climate impact.
