New survey: Barriers to energy audits and energy efficiency in SMEs

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) make up 99% of companies in Europe, making both the environmental and economic impact of increased energy efficiency vital to the continent’s green recovery. To this end, the project’s first survey aims to gain valuable insights on barriers to energy efficiency for SMEs from across Europe.

The survey is divided into two sections: the first focuses on organisations, from national agencies and business associations, to ministries, NGOs and industrial associations. The second reaches out to SMEs to learn more about the individual barriers facing European businesses to get access to energy audits and to support in becoming more energy efficient.

We need your help

The more responses we receive, the more accurately we can identify the barriers to energy efficiency and energy audits in the EU. Below are links to each survey, with both available in nine languages. Each survey takes just 10 minutes to complete and will help provide the project with important information as we look to enhance our recommendations to policymakers over the next 18 months.

The survey is available in English, Croatian, German, Greek, Italian, Maltese, Polish, Portuguese and Slovak.
