Energy education for companies and municipal environmental and health protection offices
The project has been carried out in corporation between several actors in the county of Västmanland. The aim of the project was to raise the competence amongst corporations in the areas of energy use and efficiency. In longer terms this will lead to higher profit and lower use of energy among companies.
Mälardalen Energy Agency, together with the County Administrative Board in Västmanland, was granted financial support from the Swedish Energy Agency for the implementation of the project “Energy education for companies and municipal environmental and health protection offices”. During the project, 20 business visits were conducted, 20 environmental inspectors were trained, and a seminar with 30 visiting companies was held. All municipalities in Västmanland County were given the opportunity to participate in the project which lasted from 2009 to 2010.
