EDA launches third Defence Energy Management course
The European Defence Agency has launched the third Defence Energy Managers Course (DEMC), the agency announced on 24 May.
The courses aim to increase energy efficiency and reduce energy consumption in the military domain through the application of defence-specific Energy Management Systems based on the ISO 50001 standard.
The course will run until May 2020. Participants from eight Member States, including Cyprus, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Romania and Sweden will receive theoretical knowledge and practical guidance for using defence-specific and tailor-made energy management systems.
The course is split into three modules alternating with two periods of mentoring and on-the-job training, over 11 months in total. The course builds on the success of the pilot course and the two first ongoing DEMC editions.
