Exploring Smart Energy Management

This was a project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union in the field of vocational education and training (KA202).

Starting date: 01-10-2018 and ending date: 30-08-2021





















MAIN OBJECTIVE: Enhance technological skills of VET students and their teachers about using digital tools in energy management


The new-generation information technologies such as the Internet of Things, robotics, and smart connected objects open new horizons for industry and the energy markets. The experiences of the VET partners involved in the projects points to the fact that the VET providers have to get in line with the new technical competencies required by the smart energy sector and, specifically, the area of energy management. Furthermore, with the experience of homeschooling under the Pandemic, the need for developing high-quality digital learning tools and virtual mobility for VET learners became more importance.

  • Training VET teachers/providers in ECVET principles
  • Definition of a SEM Qualification description

  • Organization of a VET student competition
  • Development of a teachers’ Handbook for implementing PBL inside the classroom



  • 200 VET students from 6 VET schools
  • 90 VET teachers
