With the energy transition and the advent of digitalisation, electrical contracting becomes more challenging. Contractors need to be highly qualified and have master multiple skills. The young generation has a key role to play to guarantee the future electrical value chain. AIE is an associated member of and cooperates with WorldSkills Europe and joins the organisation of the biennial Europe-wide trades competition with the single trade competition called ‘Electrical Installations’ for young electricians between 18 and 25 years old. We also promote the acquisition of all needed new skills by participating in an EU co-funded project called SMARTEL.





Every European household should be equipped with a safe electrical installation. Yet, as the White Paper 'Residential Electrical Safety: How to Ensure Progress' shows, progress needs to be made to achieve this objective. AIE works with all relevant stakeholder organisations to raise awareness about this issue and to improve safety in Europe. Notably, we are member of the so-called “Forum for European Electrical Domestic Safety (FEEDS)”





Electrical installations in buildings must keep pace with the evolving electricity, heating and transport sectors. These sectors are becoming greener, digitalised, interconnected and decentralised. AIE works with other organisations in the building sector on Building Automation and Control Systems (BACS) and on Building Information Modeling (BIM) to maximise the benefits and optimise the use of digital solutions. EU legislation is key in driving and accompanying the transformation of the electricity, heating and transport sectors - here are our position papers on:
