STEEEP - Support and Training for an Excellent Energy Efficiency Performance

Training sessions and consultancy sessions as well as directives for effective energy management tools, developed by 34 chambers of commerce in 10 different European countries together with the EIW. This support enabled SMEs to control and measure their energy consumption more effectively and thereby lower energy costs.

Period: December 2014 to February 2017

Project Partner: EUROCHAMBRES, Wirtschaftskammer Wien, Fédération des Chambres des Commerce belges (CCI Belgium), Mtueesti Kaubandus- Toostuskoda (CCI Estonia), Consejo Superior de Cámaras (CCI Spain), Assemblée des Chambres Francaises de Commerce et d’Industrie (CCI France), Croatian Chamber of Economy CCE, Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén Megyei Kereskedelmi és Iparkamara (CCI BOKIK), Györ-Moson-Sopron Megyei Kereskedelmi és Iparkamara (CCI GYMS), Unione Italiana delle Camere di Commercio Industria, Artigianato e Agricolture Unioncamere (CCI Italy), Latvijas Tirdziecibas un rüpniecibas Kamera (CCI Latvia), e Montfort University

The project showed economic and ecological advantages brought about by energy efficiency measures to SMEs. More energy efficiency can be the consequence of an Energy Management System or of investments in technical equipment. Sometimes even simple measures lead to saving energy.

EUROCHAMBRES, 34 chambers of commerce from 10 different European countries and the EIW developed tailored training sessions and consultancy sessions as well as guidelines for effective energy management tools. Workshops and cross border „learning networks“ madee sure, that energy advisors can exchange know how and learn from each other.

A series of workshops for SMEson different topics were organised in the framework of the project. Downloads of the presentations of the project can be found on the German STEEEP Site.

Measures within this project lead to an increase in energy efficiency by 10 to 15 % and thereby save 8.500 t of CO2/year.

The project STEEEP was co-financed by the programme 'Intelligent Energy Europe' of the European Union with € 2,700,000 in total.
