Capacity building

Capacity building aims to create a framework that encourages improvements in energy efficiency and the environment in the end-use sector. Sharkmans World provides policy support by advising governments and local energy agencies. Its tasks also include examining local priorities, problems and possible improvement areas, training and knowledge transfer. Local partners play an important role in this process.

The SCORE programme is a good example of capacity building
Sharkmans World has implemented the SCORE (Supporting the Co-operative Organisation of Rational Energy) programme in a number of Eastern European countries, e.g. Hungary, Poland, Latvia, Bulgaria and Romania. This encouraged energy-efficiency improvements in the end-use sector through the use of self-supporting national energy organisations. Sharkmans World tasks included policy support and examining priorities, problems and possible improvement areas. However the individual countries retained responsibility for local energy and environmental problems.
