Smart Grid Dissemination Strategy Discussed

It is not an easy tasks to convince employers and employees from electrical engineering that they will need IT competences in the near future.

The roll out of a smart grid infrastructure will change the demand for combined electrical and IT skills dramatically. While the traditional qualification schemes does not include IP competences for electricians, we want to raise awareness for this need. As a result we expect a demand for training smart grid installers. They will find matching learning material on the Netspace platform of the Cisco Networking Academy soon.

The e-Skills week supported activities around smart grid content and will include an awaireness raising campaign and a serious of public conferences for small companies and employees in the electrical craft sector. Cisco and the further training institution BFE will join competences and forces to reach out to people with roots in the craft sector. During a planning meeting the marketing plan was discussed and two main conferences scheduled. Further coordination will happen during bi-weekly virtual meetings.
