EINSTEIN in Madrid

Companies in Madrid very interested in the new introductory course to EINSTEIN

Due to the success of EINSTEIN in Madrid training courses have been agreed for a new introductory EINSTEIN course to be delivered on the 20-22 June 2012 in the IFE, Institute for Business Training of Madrid Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

It is the last opportunity for the community of energy professionals, auditors, engineers and technicians to learn how this advanced toolkit of audits has positioned itself as the leader for thermal audits in Europe.

Although promotion of the course has not yet begun formally there has already been significant interest with 10 professional expressing an interest in attending the MAdrid course. We are sure that like the 5 previous courses offered under the project EINSTEIN I and II and the ETEREA project this course will be a success too

EINSTEIN in Newcastle, Uganda and Macedonia

Besides the finalization of the audits one main task of AEE  INTEC within the remaining course of the project are additional trainings. There has been introductory training in Newcastle from the 27th to the 29th of March 2012 organized by AEE  INTEC and WMES supported by Newcastle University. The target audiences were energy consultants and advisors as well as students from the University.

Furthermore there were two trainings in Uganda (17th to the 19th of April 2012) and Macedonia (24th to the 26th of April 2012) organized within the UNIDO project “Low carbon production in the agro-industry”. The project is focused on the development of methodology and approaches, training of national service providers and the implementation of resource efficient and cleaner production assessments.

The aim is to develop a low carbon module and training concept, significant enterprise level improvements particularly in regard to reduced carbon dioxide emissions, the strengthening of national capacity to provide low carbon services, and the launching of a national service provider network and a business network to secure further collaboration in this area. The training will include parts of the introductory as well as the advanced training in order to provide a wide range of information on the EINSTEIN software and methodology. Within this project EINSTEIN will be spread in more countries and hopefully, the EINSTEIN community will be extended.

CEN-CENELEC Workshop Agreement planned for EINSTEIN II

One of the goals of EINSTEIN II is to develop a CEN-CENELEC Workshop Agreement on Good Practice for an Integrated Approach on Thermal Energy Audits. The Agreement is planned to be developed within the framework of a CEN-CENELEC Workshop to be installed in the near future.

A CEN-CENELEC Workshop offers a unique opportunity to develop documents fast and flexibly, is open to participation for anyone with an interest in the development of the agreement.

The CEN-CENELEC Workshop is to be a place where project members, developers and any other person interested in energy audits can bring their standardization and specification requirements and are given the opportunity to find a solution in an environment 'tailor-made' for their needs. The Workshop concept provides a unique opportunity for any party faced with a challenge to find others in a similar situation, and to develop a result by consensus, validated in an open arena.

The procedures for setting up and operating the workshop are deliberately kept to a minimum and all the decision-making powers rest with the interested parties themselves - the members of the Workshop. These include all market players (industry, service providers, administrations, users and consumers) and can come from any part of the globe. They are responsible for the direction of the Workshop and for the approval of the deliverables.

The business plan for the Workshop should be published soon at

Anyone can comment on the business plan, directing their comments to the address indicated on the website. The kick-off date for the Workshop will also be announced on the same site as well as on and Everyone interested in energy audits is encouraged to register and to follow the activities of the Workshop.
