Survey for SMEs

You can still take our project survey! Aiming to gain valuable insights on barriers to energy efficiency for SMEs from across Europe, the survey will stay available into the new year as we hope to gather as much information as we can. Your voice matters. The 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.
