Energy Transition Audits towards Decarbonization

Reference: LIFE21-CET-AUDITS-EnTRAINER/101076424 | Acronym: LIFE21-CET-AUDITS-EnTRAINER

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

BACKGROUND

EnTRAINER aims to introduce a paradigm shift from conventional energy audits to a new, holistic and complete methodology of "Energy Transition Audits" (ETA). With this new approach, the main focus is to provide a multi-benefit scheme and a complete action plan towards full decarbonization of the audited sites. EnTRAINER comprises partners with a long-standing cooperation and energy audit experts, and will focus on energy intensive industries in 4 South-East EU countries (EL, RO, IT, ES), which are lagging in the implementation of energy audits compared to other EU regions. The holistic methodology of EnTRAINER includes training elements, in the form of 2 accredited courses for energy auditors and energy experts and 1 course for company staff. It also includes a sophisticated web-portal, with 4 new and upgraded tools, freely offered to energy professionals, and a training platform and knowledge hub that will allow a continuous interaction and knowledge sharing between participants. A further element is the support provided to those industrial sites to actually implement the proposed audit measures, aiming to bring together top management and financing bodies and in addition to guide them to take advantage of existing and future funding opportunities. The project will provide preliminary energy scans in 80 energy intensive industries, and then based on certain maturity criteria, perform 40 detailed direct ETAs. The results from these ETAs will act as lighthouses for other industries of the same sector, by using the knowledge hub. EnTRAINER will train 240 Energy Auditors, and in this context, will trigger another 40 indirect ETAs through the interaction with external energy auditors. Moreover, it will train 240 energy experts that may become the future energy transition auditors, and 400 company staff including key decision makers. EnTRAINER actions will trigger 16 M € investments, 4.75 GWh primary energy savings and 5.16 GWh renewable energy generation in total
