Berlin has set itself the goal of becoming climate-neutral by 2045 at the latest, and the "Berlin Energy and Climate Protection Program" (BEK) with its numerous measures is the central implementation instrument of Berlin's energy and climate protection policy for achieving this goal. The lack of skilled installers has been identified as a key obstacle to the further expansion of climate-relevant technologies in Berlin's buildings and other infrastructure. This is where the feasibility study for a so-called "KlimaWerkstatt@Berlin" comes in, which ideas into energy is implementing together with the Berlin guilds for the electrical and plumbing trades and with funding from the Berlin Senate Administration. The study analyzes the technical and economic feasibility of a new vocational training center for the recruitment and qualification of installers on a site owned by the Berlin Electrical Guild.
