Introduction to the IEC-SME project

Intelligent energy IEC-SME project.

The municipal enterprise PEMSA participates in the IEC-SME project, co-financed through the Project Intelligent Energy for Europe of the European Commission (call for projects 2005) of the Intelligent Energy Executive Agency (IEEA), being aimed at elaborating a standard procedure to improve energetic competition in SMEs, which has to be simple, efficient, transnational and non-profit.

IEC-SME is a transnational initiative of public (provinces, chambers of commerce, universities, energy agencies) and private (SME, consultancy centres, agency clusters) entities from across the European Union. The objective of this project is to optimize the use of energy in order to improve the competitiveness of SMEs in the industrial areas of Moncada. Initiated on the 29th of December 2006, the project is scheduled to be completed in June 2009, being allocated a global budget for all project partners of EUR 1,642,000, of which 50% is co-financed by the European Commission.

The IEC-SME project aims to create an integrated knowledge chain intended to increase energetic competition of SMEs among specialty knowledge providers such as universities, educational centres, energy agencies and chambers of commerce and organizations with business interests providing support services to companies. The aim of this project is to increase the awareness of SMEs on energy saving, increasing its efficiency and the use of renewable energy, reducing emissions, improving competitiveness and promoting the investment in working methods related to renewable energies and sustainable development.

Objectives of the Project:

  • Facilitate the provision by business support entities of advice on energy related issues to regional points of SMEs, with the aid of specialists in the field.

  • Implement benchmarking processes intended to help SMEs interpret their energetic yield and elaborate a draft of recommendations to improve their necessities.

  • Create a database containing specific information on the energetic yield of SMEs, such as the EPI. This database shall serve as a starting point for the monitoring process.

  • Help SMEs identify new opportunities to improve their energetic yield through benchmarking processes which shall be placed at their disposal.

  • Give greater visibility to good practices intended to improve the energetic yield of SMEs and to resulting benefits.
