PROJECT DESCRIPTION

BACKGROUND

EENOVA will demonstrate that the uptake of energy audit results (at the company level) is supported and energy related solutions can be implemented through an independent and service-oriented caretaker. The EENOVA methodology leverages the regional context of value chains consisting of SMEs (and LEs) by identifying common steps for awareness-raising, cooperation and implementation between individual companies being part of the food processing value chain. This will be achieved through the inherent focus of EENOVA on individual and related value chain conditions reflecting the existing or perceived regional legislation/standardisation and business environment differences. EENOVA will validate its sector neutral methodology on 5 different regional food processing value chains (bakery, winery, brewery, meat and milk) in 5 different countries (AT, BG, LT, RO and SLO) and, building on their successes, derive a widely applicable replication model for other value chains in the same or other regions and sectors. The uptake of the replication model will be initiated through the involvement of relevant stakeholders such as sector associations, representatives from finance sector, etc.. The underlying replication roadmap will also involve the policy level to create mutual interest to replicate. The methodology encompasses 1. a trusted intermediary - that might need training on energy related topics but is not necessarily considered an energy expert 2. a value chain of companies – at least three companies 3. a structured process with several roundtables at 3 levels: single enterprise, regional value chain, consolidation towards general replicable solutions and policy learnings The expected energy-related impact of the intervention is estimated to result in primary energy savings of roughly 1.1 GWh/year and renewable energy generation of roughly 1.1 GWh/year by the end of project (and roughly 21 GWh/year PE savings and roughly 23 GWh/year RE triggered within 5 years.
