Clean Energy Transition CET – Uptake of energy audits recommendations for the energy transition of companies

Summary

The key objective of this topic is to increase in companies, using a holistic approach, the uptake of availability of energy audits and to ensure that large enterprises carry out regular energy audits or have an Energy Management System (EMS) in place.

Detailed Call Description

Proposals should implement tailor-made support activities covering the whole process from energy audit to implementation of measures, and potentially beyond, leading to a significant increase in the rate of concrete implementation of audit recommendations. Depending on the readiness level of the targeted companies, proposals may deliver operational support directly to companies as a service, or tailored capacity building and advisory to company staff (both at management and operational level), provided that activities lead to the actual implementation of the recommended measures.

The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of up to € 1 750 000 would allow the specific objectives to be addressed appropriately. The funding rate is 95%.
