The paper at hand describes the need, methodologies and results of pilot training of urban planners in order them to become familiar with renewable energy systems (RES) and energy efficiency (EE). There is little tradition in the world to integrate energy and emissions to urban planning even though energy mainly used in housing and transportation is the main reason to Climate Change, and the urban planner is the first actor to decide how renewable energy and energy efficiency can or cannot be applied in the community to be planned. Therefore, pilot training of urban planners with energy skills has been carried out in five European countries to start filling the gap of the needed skills. The objective is that similar training be extended to other countries and universities both to continuing professional as well as master level training of urban planners. Thus, a training package of 3 000 slides and related explanatory texts have been made freely downloadable in 10 European languages.
