The Energy Efficiency Management Programme (EEMP), started by the CDE in 2007, has a double objective.
First, it aims at enhancing SMEs’ competitiveness by mainstreaming best practices in energy management, with direct impact on the overall production process costs and productivity increase. Second, it aims at contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions which lead to environmental degradation.
With this in mind, the CDE has developed the EEMP tool for assistance to SMEs in 4 steps:
- Selection of SMEs with development potential
- Energy audit
- Technical assistance
- Implementation support
To illustrate and disseminate this approach for a wider outreach, the CDE has produced a guide on Energy Efficiency Management for SMEs.
