Engaging SMEs in energy audits
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) represent 99 % of all businesses in the EU. They also represent significant energy saving potential. However, a lack of expertise, time and capital often hinders SMEs from implementing energy conservation measures. The EU-funded GEAR-at-SME project will substantiate the role of a local Trusted Partner who will work to bridge the gap between SMEs and suppliers of energy services by taking a local, collective approach based on multiple benefits. The project will reach out to 300 SMEs per location (Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Romania) and another 600 locations following the project’s lifetime. The overall goal of the project is to lead SMEs to become fully aware of the multiple benefits resulting from energy audits.
