Building capacities in the utilities sector of North Macedonia for the more resilient, inclusive and sustainable provision of services for citizens
In December 2020 and February 2021, a total of 33 representatives from North Macedonian public utility companies and municipalities were trained on energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy in their sector. Acting as multipliers, they then shared their know-how with 40 operational and municipal staff members. The aim of the project was to improve the quality of services provided to citizens at municipal level with special attention being paid to communities with a large Roma presence.
Objectives and results
The objectives of the action were met through the holding of two trainings with 33 representatives from North Macedonian public utility companies and municipalities. The trainings provided the latest know-how on renewable energy and energy efficiency and were tailored to the local market in order to ensure easy application. The trainings will strengthen local capacities in implementing policies contributing to EU accession, the meeting of the SDGs and the country's national and regional strategy goals.
