Overcoming Barriers Through Global Cooperation
Barriers and hurdles to implement a high quality EE programme can be addressed through global corporation and resources from other development partners. As such, the collaboration of the private sector and university administration is critical. For the development of such course, the private sector has to share its vision and goal toward sustainability and how through training of their employees these goals can be met. The private sector can highlight areas where they believe energy efficient processes and knowledge are essential and course developers can take all this into consideration while developing the course. This will allow the course to fulfil the needs of a wide range of industries when suggestions come from different private sector sources. Funds from the private sector can also be of great help in designing such course. Additionally, collaboration with local and international networks (such as in Mauritius, there is the Energy Management Office) and NGOs is an important step to strengthen EE education.
