Guiding Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and national authorities through the energy transition by taking profit of multiple benefits and energy management approaches
Conducting energy audits and implementing energy management systems can be a source of multiple benefits for companies if they tap into their wide potential: reduced operating costs, increased productivity, improved working environment, and much more.
DEESME is a 3-year Horizon 2020-funded project (2020-2023), built on a strong consortium of academics, research organisations, consultancies and government offices from Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Poland. The project aims to:
- Enable companies, especially small and medium enterprises (SMEs), to engage in the energy transition by taking profit of multiple benefits from energy management and energy audit approaches,
- Provide national authorities with guidelines and recommendations to strengthen their national schemes/policies,
- Enhance the adoption of the DEESME approach by National Authorities (NA) beyond the project timeline through the implementation of institutionalisation activities.
