EE MUSIC Train-the-Expert, Riga


The EE MUSIC Train-the-Expert Training in Rīga, Latvia is addressed to energy consultants and technical employees of small to medium sized clubs and event venues. The focus of this two-day training course will be on energy management and energy audit schemes for small to medium sized venues, including an introduction in the structure of the industry, an overview of energy efficient equipment for the event business and the analysis of structural measures – possible financing models for venues will also be dealt with. On the basis of the results gained by the Green Club Index in Germany and the research of Julie’s Bicycle in England, case studies of international top locations will be presented and successful measures and tools which were particularly effective in the energy management of these venues will be elaborated.


Participants of the two-day training course are offered the unique chance to gain insights about the energy management of internationally renowned locations and can receive practical knowledge for the new and expanding market for the energy management of event venues. The training is free of charge and will be held in English. Participants will receive a certificate.

Nina Hillekum is a Senior Project Manager at Berlin based Think-Do Tank THEMA1 specialized in accelerating the transition to a Low Carbon Society and responsible for EE MUSIC, the first pan- European project to reduce the music event industry’s energy consumption significantly.


EE MUSIC covers 27 European countries and is co- funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe programme. As an expert with a background in sustainability policy, she is also deeply involved in the work of the PEF World Forum, an international platform to discuss corporate best practices and emerging tools to support environmentally friendly consumption models. She has been already involved in the German PCF Pilot Project, the first project of its kind in Germany to assess a methodology to calculate PCF for products and service and to feed the results into international negotiations and national policy considerations. Further, she manages an event format called Dialogue Forum that gathers experts from politics, business and civil society to discuss topics such as the handling of Green energy within PCF/ PEF calculations. She also contributes to the Green Music Initiative, a NGO to kick off and support sustainability measures within the music and entertainment industry.
