The European Union requires green production processes and ecological products, and without that there is no competition on the market. The Serbian economy will follow that path, and it will be facilitated by energy scouts who will enter our companies and factories. Their training is funded by the German government, and their task is to initiate energy savings and reduction of carbon dioxide emissions.

The task of energy scouts is to encourage their companies to work more energy efficiently, identifying places where the greatest energy savings can be made and carbon dioxide emissions reduced.

They are trained to find solutions not only for production processes, but also for heating and cooling the working space in order to replace dirty energy sources with clean ones, but also to raise the environmental awareness of employees.

– Tailored to companies, the program strengthens nature protection and reduces company costs, thus showing that the economy and environmental protection can go hand in hand. Funded by the German Ministry of the Environment, the energy scouts join the broad cooperation between Germany and Serbia as candidates for membership in the European Union – says Ana Kristin Piplica from the Department of Economy of the German Embassy in Belgrade.

Serbia has supported the “Green Agreement and the agenda of the Union”, so experts are expected to accelerate those affairs, because our economy consumes at least five times more energy than the European average.

– Serbia is on a good path to develop a new economic model, based on green growth through more intensive implementation of digitalization, circular economy, development of innovative approaches to decarbonisation and greater use of renewable sources – says Frank Aleter, director of the German-Serbian Chamber of Commerce.

– The opportunity they will get here, and that is the exchange of knowledge and experiences, which will become energy scouts. This is something that Serbia desperately needs and we are almost certain that we will be able to adequately apply their knowledge and experience that it will gain – points out Sandra Dokić, Assistant Minister of Environment of Serbia.

For the “Young Energy Europe” project, the German-Serbian Chamber of Commerce has published the first advertisement to which our companies can apply for training candidates. The program for energy scouts will last until 2024, and the first training will begin in October.
