The main objective of the European Project SPEEDIER is to encourage the carrying out of energy audits and the implementation of energy saving measures in SMEs. It has a budget of €2.1M and is co-financed by the EU's H2020 programme
SPEEDIER includes 4 pilot areas for its execution and it is based on the self-financing by SMEs of both the energy audit and the implementation of energy saving measures. To do this, it will be outsourced to an energy administrator, to which SMEs can access when they need it.
This project is a highly innovative one-stop-shop solution that applies an integrated approach to energy management, providing information, advice, capacity building, energy auditing, financing, implementation of energy efficiency solutions and monitoring of impacts.
SPEEDIER is expected to contribute to energy saving with approximately 8 GWh/year and 1,280 tCO2/year. Within the lifetime of the project, SPEEDIER will train more than 650 staff members in the best practices of energy saving and build capacity as well among 50 SPEEDIER experts.
