With over 250 million smart meters for electricity, gas, water expected to be installed in the EU by 2020, the work of construction site managers is already undergoing change, requiring appropriate up-skilling with combined, green and digital, competences, to supervise the commission, installation, and operation of smart metering solutions.
The new challenge for the traditional construction training sector is to further expand to the newly introduced field of modern environmental technologies. The current status of site managers’ skills development in relevance to smart metering is not sufficiently, comprehensively and consistently supported by VET programs in an EU level.
