Guide on SMEs' Energy Efficiency Management


Green energy, a key factor of costs and competitiveness of SMEs, features amongst CDE’s priority sectors of intervention.

The Energy Efficiency Management Programme (EEMP), started by the CDE in
2007, aims as much at enhancing SMEs’ competitiveness by mainstreaming
best practices in energy management, with direct impact on the overall
production process costs and productivity increase, as to contributing
to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions which lead to environmental

With this in mind, the CDE has developed the EEMP tool for assistance to SMEs in 4 steps:

  1. Selection of SMEs with development potential
  2. Energy audit
  3. Technical assistance
  4. Implementation support

To illustrate and disseminate this approach for a wider outreach, the CDE has released a new guide on Energy Efficiency Management for SMEs.
