“Training on energy audits as an Energy Efficiency DRIVER for the automotive sector“
Energy efficency is a key priority for the EU’s sustainable growth strategy. Despite wide-ranging energy efficiency measures, SMEs still suffer from a knowledge gap and the difficulties to face the necessary investment expenditures.
The automotive sector is one of the most energy consuming industries. Despite rising energy prices that mainly impact supplier SMEs of this sector, energy costs receive little attention in these companies.
The project is structured into 6 work packages, all of which work in synthesis with one another to achieve the objectives of E2DRIVER.
12 project partners from 5 countries are part of the E2DRIVER project. They come from Spain, Germany, Italy, France and Belgium.
How it works?
E2DRIVER teaches firms in the automotive industry how to conduct energy audits, increase their energy efficiency and reduce energy-related costs. Through a people-centred approach, the training methodology is adapted to each trainee’s needs and ambitions. An innovative learning platform developed in the project facilitates the application of the training, containing training materials, tools and lessons. The platform’s strength also lies in the fact that it serves as a hub where trainees can exchange new skills and insights among themselves to collaboratively bridge the knowledge gap on energy audits and energy efficiency.
