Find out more about peer-to-peer learning methods for energy efficiency practices and the implementation of sustainable urban solutions in a new report.

The ‘Sustainable Energy Action Planning: learning from each other’ report gives examples of energy efficiency practices and the implementation of sustainable urban solutions, developed through different peer-to peer working methods.

This report gathers experience from five successful Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) projects – CASCADE, Conurbant, Covenant Capacity, eReNet and LEAP. These five projects have all tested peer-to-peer working methods, including: peer-to peer reviews, mentoring, and work shadowing. Each of these methods is a different approach to learning from peers: the peer-to-peer review focuses on peer evaluation and feedback; mentoring provides for a more experienced partner to guide a mentee; and work-shadowing allows a ‘learning’ partner to observe or participate in the work of a more experienced peer.

We contributed to the development of this publication by sharing our knowledge gained through the CASCADE project.

Read about these practices in the report, available here.
