Saving electricity, heat, and fuel with creative ideas. That's what it’s all about in our nationwide initiative “Energy Scouts”. Throughout Germany, the Chambers of Commerce and Industry (IHK) are organizing this further education program for apprentices from various companies. Beyond boy scouts and girl scouts, scouts are young people that take on responsibility in society and - in this case - in a company. The objective of this training is to convey to the apprentices the required knowledge around the topics energy efficiency, energy transition, and the saving of resources, which they, in turn, can implement in their own projects. Niedersachsen Ports has been participating for many years successfully in this measure. Thanks to the commitment of our apprentices, many exciting projects, from streamlining the lighting, saving electricity and heat energy, to the avoidance of waste, have already been implemented.
Our apprentices can grow their skills, we save costs for energy, and, at the same time, we live up to our responsibility towards society to help facilitate the energy transition, plus we give young people professional training.
