On November 9-10, Dan Stefanica, Head of EU Projects at the European Heat Pump Association attended the 16th SET Plan conference: Towards a new strategic energy technology plan In Prague, Czech Republic.
Dan spoke at the session on the green-digital twin transition. Highlighting that the green and digital transitions reinforce each other and that their relationship should be further discussed. Future-proof jobs and skills are one of the areas through which the European Green Deal is to improve the well-being and health of citizens and future generations. At the same time, insufficient workforce with adequate skills sets has been identified as a significant current bottleneck of the clean energy transition. The session aimed to explore how coordinated skills policy can help overcome these challenges. With HP4All being used as a best practice example.
