Congratulations to the Sustainable Skills Training Hub for taking out the top ACT Sustainable Cities Award for 2011.

According to the media release on 19 July 2011, the skills training hub is the perfect example of how partnerships at all levels can achieve sustainable outcomes in the area of carbon reduction and education.

The new building demonstrates the design and use of almost every conceivable sustainable option in a building, from various types of mechanical, electrical and hydraulic systems including micro turbines, solar and Bluegen fuel cells, to chilled beams and geothermal loops.

The purpose built facility provides hands-on green skills training for students, whilst also addressing ‘higher skills’ shortages for scientists and engineers in the area of emerging sustainable technologies.

Students will be trained in the installation, testing, commissioning, and maintenance of these technologies so they will gain the skills required to assess and employ the latest in green building applications, materials and new products.
