DEESME joins forces with other projects, discover them!

We are glad to start a partnership with key projects working, like DEESME partners, on energy efficiency in SMEs, energy audits and management systems and providing solutions to policymakers.

Let’s introduce them briefly here.


The IMPAWATT project is identifying and addressing these barriers. For this purpose the project aims at creating a staff training and capacity building platform to enhance corporate policy towards energy efficiency, energy culture and sustainable supply-chain initiatives.


Through a people-centred approach, the training methodology is adapted to each trainee’s needs and ambitions. An innovative learning platform developed in the project facilitates the application of the training, containing training materials, tools and lessons.


SPEEDIER is a highly innovative one-stop-shop solution that applies an integrated approach to energy management, providing information, advice, capacity building, energy auditing, financing, implementation of energy efficiency solutions and monitoring of impacts.

Triple A

Enhancing at an Early Stage the Investment Value Chain of Energy Efficiency Projects” (Triple-A) has a practical result-oriented approach, seeking to identify which investments can be considered as Triple-A investments, fostering sustainable growth, while also having an extremely strong capacity to meet their commitments, already from the first stages of investments generation and preselection/pre-evaluation.


European SMEs are exempt of the obligation to carry out energy audits, nevertheless energy transition is a joint task. Innoveas enhances the willingness to invest in energy efficiency improvements in industrial processes. The project intends to address the issues regarding the low uptake of energy auditing practices by European Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs).


SMEmPOWER aims to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) carry out energy audits and take action to increase their energy efficiency. The objective is to increase the capacity of European SMEs to undergo energy audits and implement standard and innovative energy saving measures using the variety of available financing tools and options.


ICCEE (2019-2022) will make it easier for the food and beverage cold chain sector to accelerate the implementation of energy efficiency measures across the entire supply chain, also arising from energy audits, with a strong engagement of companies and other stakeholders. It will help to turn energy efficiency opportunities into actual investments and create a clear understanding of the economic and environmental impacts of improving energy efficiency.


LAUNCH is a EU H2020-funded project that aims to accelerate deal closure and pipeline growth for Sustainable Energy Assets through standardised material. This includes investor-grade Energy Performance Contracts, standardised risk assessment protocols for investors, a roadmap for project developers to access growth capital, and market-tested value propositions for project developers’ end-clients.
