Companies participating in STEEEP benefited from tailored training and guidance on effective energy management tools and practices provided by an established network of intelligent energy advisors of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (CCIs) from 10 different countries. The companies learnt to measure and consequently control energy costs more efficiently.

An experienced academic partner scientifically evaluated their potential for energy savings and carried out the benchmarking.

Additionally, 9 pilot projects will be implemented in 7 European countries, setting up Local Energy Communities, to show the energy savings potential of collective action.

STEEEP contributes to the EU’s goal of increasing energy efficiency by 2020, while at the same time provided European SMEs with an opportunity to make substantial savings and increase their competitiveness.
