Energy Efficiency Policies: Increasing SME Sustainability

LEAP4SME Final Event

LEAP4SME is organising a high-level energy efficiency conference at the European Parliament, hosted by MEP Patrizia Toia, Vice-President of the Industry, Research, and Energy (ITRE) Committee.

The event will bring together policy-makers, national energy agencies, business associations and other key stakeholders in discussion about creating and implementing more effective energy efficiency policies for SMEs.

It will be an opportunity to gather information from EU policy makers on the latest developments of the EED Recast and to better understand the role of industry, businesses and SMEs in the updated Directive.

The morning policy session will be followed by a session in the LEAP4SME International Observatory series, focused on energy efficiency and sustainable policies and initiatives for SMEs. The afternoon session will include:

  • the results of national observatories on energy efficiency in SMEs in Austria, Croatia, Greece. Italy, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, and United Kingdom
  • the opportunities arising from the new European Commission Covenant of Companies for Climate and Energy;
  • the role of energy audits and energy management systems in SMEs in policy implementation in Europe and beyond.
