The IMEAS project, which addresses the policy silo problem in regards to integrated and multilevel energy planning, has entered the second half of its duration. For developed tools and guidelines IMEAS partners prepared an internal Train the Trainers session.

The objective of the Train the Trainers workshop is to equip the project partners with the necessary skills and knowledge on the IMEAS deliverables of guidelines and tools in order for them, in turn, to adequately train the respective target groups in their countries and regions. Main topics of the training were data modelling and how to get familiar with decision making tools for investments in renewable sources. These tools are scenario based with the aim to find results as regards the optimum cost benefit and life cycle costs analyses of current and future RES technologies. The main benefit of using tools is to avoid mistakes in energy planning.

Another important aspect in achieving a low carbon future is to find the best implemented solution in similar environments or territories. Thus, IMEAS developed the IMEAS Stakeholder Network Model (ISNM) which can find lighthouse practices by actor similarity. This tool is still in its development phase and will be presented to general public in the coming months. Other important topics covered by the Train the Trainers session addressed data collection, calculation of baseline emission inventories, integrated solutions in local, territorial and regional action plans and linkages between different policy levels.  All participants are looking forward to the upcoming IMEAS web platform where all tools and guidelines will be available together with the state of the art stakeholder alliance mechanism and where we will establish relations between and within different silos.
