The LEAP4SME (Linking Energy Audit Policies to enhance and support SMEs towards energy efficiency) project aims to establish and improve national schemes for SMEs to undergo energy audits and implement the recommended, cost-effective energy saving measures.
Through the project, EWA shall identify current policy criticalities and bottlenecks, while exploring the most effective ways to address existing and innovative energy audit policies. The project shall assist EWA to develop a set of policy proposals and recommendations on energy auditing and energy saving measures targeted towards SMEs to realize both energy and non-energy benefits.
The project consortium consists of 9 energy agencies from Italy, Portugal, Austria, Greece, Slovakia, Croatia, Poland, United Kingdom and Malta as well as a communication’s partner. The LEAP4SME project started in September 2020 and is projected to be completed in September 2023.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
