A big boost for small business energy audits
From a brief site inspection to an in-depth analysis of energy usage, energy audits help companies achieve cost-effective energy savings. But Europe’s SMEs, which represent a huge energy saving potential, are not obliged to undergo energy audits. Also, small business owners lack the information and resources to invest in energy efficiency. The EU-funded INNOVEAS project aims to reverse this trend and increase energy audit uptake among SMEs. It will start by building capacity in the field of energy auditing and related energy saving measures in SMEs. The goal is to promote an energy culture (motivations, behaviour change, mitigation of perceived risks and barriers) to encourage SMEs to undergo energy audits and implement the recommended energy-saving measures.
