EIEEP – European Industrial Energy Efficiency good Practices platform

The new section of the website is a useful tool for looking for investment opportunities

Rome, September 2017 – Foster the spread of “Good Practices” among businesses, with positive effects in terms of competitiveness, environment and social fallouts. These are the benefits that EU-MERCI promotes among the stakeholders in the industrial sector with the launch of EIEEP – the European Industrial Energy Efficiency good Practices platform (http://www.eumerci-portal.eu).

The EU-MERCI consortium analysed the existing “Best Practices” provided by different platforms and legislation around the world and developed both a Library, where it is possible to search for “Good Practices” for each phase of the process for the main industrial sectors, and a Database, where it is possible to make researches by field of interest (such as company size, country, implementation year, reference scheme, etc.).

EIEEP contains aggregated data from real implementation of thousands of real energy efficiency projects in several industrial sectors, provided by the EU-MERCI “Enablers”, i.e. partners with access to the database of the energy efficiency projects which have been implemented at national level (Austria, Italy, Poland and UK).

Thanks to EIEEP the most promising and effective projects in the field of energy efficiency can be identified and replicated by other enterprises. Such data, together with the information coming from the best practices suggested by the BREFs at EU level and by other international platform, are used to derive the “Good Practices”, which represent “a technique or methodology that, through experience and research, has been proven to reliably lead to a desired result in a sustainable way”.

For each “Good Practice” a file is available for download with the description of the adopted Energy Efficiency measuress and the various energy and economic indicators, useful to understand the opportunity to consider it for a given enterprise for each specific process. The “Good Practices” have been identified in the following sectors: Aluminium, Ammonia, Cement, Ceramic Coke & Petroleum, Copper, Food & Beverage, Glass, Iron & Steel, Machinery, Pulp & Paper.
