ABOUT THE DEESME PROJECT
Conducting energy audits and implementing energy management systems can be a source of multiple benefits for companies if they tap into their wide potential: reduced operating costs, increased productivity, improved working environment, and much more. As such, DEESME aims to enable companies, especially small and medium enterprises (SMEs), to engage in the energy transition by taking profit of multiple benefits from energy management and energy audit approaches, as well as provide national authorities with guidelines and recommendations to strengthen their national schemes/policies.

ABOUT THE REFEREE PROJECT
The REFEREE project – Real ValuE oF EneRgy EfficiEncyConducting – will analyse and assess the direct and indirect non-energy effects of energy efficiency investments and develop user-friendly tools to support policymakers at the local, regional and national levels. The project will allow households, companies, financing institutions and other stakeholders to assess the multiple effects of their energy efficiency decisions and include the assessment of energy efficiency investments in diverse ecosystems, including low-income regions and socially imbalanced societies.

ABOUT THE newTRENDs PROJECT
New societal trends empowered by digitalisation such as shared economy, autonomous driving and low-carbon circular economy could lead to an increase in energy demand if they are not countered by measures with a strong focus on saving energy. The goal of the newTRENDs project is to identify and quantify how new societal trends may affect energy demand. To achieve its goal, it will combine qualitative and quantitative cross-sectoral modelling and explore how energy demand models can be improved to represent new societal trends.

ABOUT THE WHY PROJECT
Energy System Models (ESMs) are tools that help energy experts and policy makers to rationally describe energy systems and systematically evaluate the impacts of long-term energy scenarios. Current ESMs lack accuracy required for proper capture of the use of energy in households. As such, the WHY project is developing a new Causal Model combined with an innovative profiling approach to analyse human decision making in energy consumption and human reactions to energy policy changes. WHY will also create innovative methodologies for short and long term load forecasting.

ABOUT THE M-Benefits PROJECT
The M-Benefits project – Valuing and Communicating Multiple Benefits of Energy-Efficiency Measures – aimed to include the Multiple Benefits (MB) of energy efficiency in investment decisions of companies and thereby substantially increasing the deployment of cost-effective energy saving potentials. It delivered best-practice examples, tools and trainings on the importance of MBs for investment decisions in companies, thereby addressing all relevant decision-makers.

ABOUT THE EERAdata PROJECT
The EERAdata project – Data-Driven Decision-Support To Increase Energy Efficiency Through Renovation In European Building Stock – aims to develop a decision-support tool to help local administrations in collecting and processing their building data towards assessing the impact of energy efficiency measures and prioritising them in planning, renovating and constructing buildings. The project takes a holistic approach which assesses ecological and socio-economic benefits of energy efficiency measures and targets important players in the local administration and policy space.

ABOUT THE ODYSSEE-MURE PROJECT
The general objective of the ODYSSEE-MURE project was to provide a comprehensive monitoring of energy consumption and efficiency trends as well as an evaluation of energy efficiency policy measures by sector for EU countries, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. It evaluated and compared energy efficiency progress by sector, and related this progress to the observed trends in energy consumption. In addition, it contributed to the evaluation of national energy efficiency policy measures and analysed their dynamics of implementation. To provide results in an interactive and attractive way to decision makers and actors involved in energy efficiency, the project developed specific data and policy tools.

ABOUT THE EENVEST PROJECT
To support investor decision-making, the EENVEST project will convert buildings’ energy-efficiency technical requirements into economic indicators for use in assessing financial risks related to deep renovation investment. Through a search and match investment evaluation web-based platform, the finance industry will be able to match energy efficiency investment demand and offer for Italy and Spain’s commercial office buildings. In addition to evaluation methods for linking technical and financial risk, the project will identify, quantify and mitigate technical risks connected with such investments and lower lenders’ credit cost via tailored risk reduction activities.
