Sweden - Pillar I

The large contribution expected from the building sector to the 2020 energy and climate change objectives calls for many efforts. One important effort is to increase the number of highly-qualified on-site ‘blue collar’ workers through further education/training to increase their skills in building nearly zero energy building using renewable energy and low energy renovations of buildings. The objectives are to analyse the national status quo, determine the necessary skills and associated barriers, develop a roadmap and platform, and to endorse the activities. Added value will be created at the European level through targeted exchange activities. The status quo will comprise the current situation regarding continuing education/training in the building sector, the current status of the building sector, current and planned policies and strategies for education/training and energy. The main characteristics/problems with low energy buildings and low energy renovation, skills required on-site and how to overcome associated barriers will be determined. The platform is already established by a strong consortium and strong reference group.

The project has now published the final draft of the Swedish Roadmap. Below you can find the Roadmap in Swedish and English. You can read more about the roadmap on the project’s national homepage.

SWEBUILD - Pillar II

The BUILD UP Skills SWEBUILD project is the first step in strengthening qualifications for an adequately educated building workforce in Sweden regarding energy efficiency and renewable energy. Targeting craftsmen, construction workers and installers, the project will:

  1. Create conditions for the efficient rollout of large-scale trainings in energy efficient building techniques and techniques for use of renewable energy in buildings,
  2. Identify and prepare quality assured curriculums and training materials of high international standards, and
  3. Train trainers which will deliver fit for purpose on-site training for craftsmen.
