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.
