LEAP4SME aims to support policy makers build the effective policies necessary to facilitate energy efficiency in SMEs. How? Through the assessment and development of proper schemes for energy audits. By understanding the key energy needs of SMEs and the existing barriers that block the path to energy efficiency, LEAP4SME will provide effective, relevant advice to national bodies. The result? Energy audit policies that are good for the environment and great for business.

The industrial heat requirement is responsible for about 28% of the overall end energy requirement in Europe; the heat requirement for rooms adds another 27%. Despite the energy efficiency having been improved all over Europe during the past decade, there is a great unexploited potential for reducing the thermal energy requirements of industrial and non-industrial users, by intelligently combining existing technologies.
The project’s objective was to prepare a wide implementation of energy management systems according to the standard EN 16001 (now: ISO 50001) in Austrian companies. Proposals for a certification system were also made and variations for political measures checked for wide-spread implementation.
