Applying Energy Efficiency provides a comprehensive overview of the technical and economic aspects of energy efficiency (EE) measures. This online training programme includes five courses that cover support mechanisms for industrial sector and built environment energy efficiency (EE) projects. Key attributes of energy efficiency (EE) measures are highlighted, such as savings potential and organisational aspects (e.g. energy management systems and energy audits).


  • Introduction to Energy Efficiency Projects
  • Support Mechanisms for Energy Efficiency Projects
  • Systematic Approaches to Energy Saving
  • Energy Efficiency in the Industry
  • Energy Efficient Buildings

Two live virtual classroom sessions:

  • Technological aspects of energy efficiency
  • Cross-sectional energy efficiency technologies

To supplement the learning experience, participants will have access to optional introductory courses on energy and electricity topics. These courses are not mandatory, do not contain assignments, and will not be covered in the exam. Participants new to these topics would benefit from reviewing the content in these courses.

Receive a reminder one week before the registration deadline.

After completing this programme, participants should be able to:

  • identify energy efficiency project drivers and barriers;
  • select the most suitable energy efficiency technologies for a project;
  • evaluate energy efficiency finance options; and
  • propose energy management systems and energy audits.

Upon successful finalisation of the programme, you will receive a RENAC Certificate.

This progamme will suit those who:

  • develop strategies for implementing energy efficiency projects;
  • assess the saving potential of cross-sectional technologies; or
  • are planning to set up energy management systems or energy audits.

Marta Stetsiv, RENAC

Current Position

Marta Stetsiv joined RENAC in 2023 as an expert in international energy efficiency training. As part of the Solar & Energy Efficiency Division, she conceptualises, plans, and manages international and national training programmes, materials, and projects for energy efficiency in buildings.  

Professional Experience

Before joining RENAC, Marta worked as a technical advisor at GIZ Ukraine for two IKI (Internationale Klimaschutzinitiative) projects focusing on energy efficiency in buildings. There she coordinated the planning and implementation of refurbishing multi-storey residential buildings, including construction. Marta also brings extensive experience as a team lead and engineer in the energy sector. She has an in-depth understanding of electricity supply networks and industries, markets and policies, and technical details of power grids and their components. 


Marta received her master’s degree in Electrical Engineering Systems of Energy Consumption from Lviv Polytechnic National University in Ukraine.


"Applying Energy Efficiency was one of the best programmes I have taken as a practising Civil Engineer. The presentations were short and easy to understand. As an Accommodation Category Expert at the United Nations (UN), the session on renewable energy was essential to me. It helped me consider the various energy inputs and output considerations in establishing the statement of requirements for an ongoing solicitation on the purchase of pre-engineered modular structures for the UN. "
Judith Nyangaga, Applying Energy Efficiency, 2022

"My overall experience with RENAC was a pleasant one. The material was provided in a cohesive manner on a platform that was easy to interact with. I was able to relate the material to my professional field. I will be able to use what I have learnt to improve the work that I do."
Quanley Marieatte, Applying Energy Efficiency, 2020
