These projects aim to improve SMEs’ awareness of energy efficiency and support an effective decisionmaking-oriented approach to it. Drivers and barriers to energy efficiency improvements in European SMEs of various industrial sectors have been investigated by means of surveys, focused group discussions and interviews.
A meta-analysis of the results of the seven EU projects was carried out to discover trends related to energy efficiency in European SMEs.
