The EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) took place on 25-29 October 2021 under the theme: ‘Towards 2030: Reshaping the European Energy System’.
The event comprised a 3-day digital Policy Conference, the EUSEW Awards, the second European Youth Energy Day as well as 1:1 video meetings, virtual stands and other networking activities. Participants also had access to online side events and Sustainable Energy Days, digital events taking place all over Europe.
Jointly with 7 sister projects E2DRIVER held a session “Towards a decarbonized Europe: Increasin enery efficiency in SMEs for a clean energy transition”
Building on the results of 7 EU-funded projects*, this session provides guidelines and good practice to implement energy efficiency solutions and to facilitate the energy transition. SMEs have a high untapped energy saving potential which can be unlocked by overcoming structural, market and financial barriers. Industry stakeholders, policy makers, financial institutions, ESCOs, academia/research, energy professionals and other attendees will therefore hear about available services, tools and policies that can unlock considerable amounts of energy/cost savings and assist in achieving emission targets. This session focuses on three key aspects of energy efficiency improvements in SMEs around Europe:
- Barriers and opportunities in implementing energy efficiency solutions,
- Best practices and case studies, such as trainings, tools, services etc.,
- Policies to enhance the implementation of energy efficiency measures in SMEs in the upcoming years.
