Improving energy efficiency in Europe has become key to tackling climate change. In 2012, the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) was established as a set of measuresto promote energy efficiency within the Unionand to achieve a sustainable and long-lastingEnergy Union.
Launched in September 2020, streamSAVE aims to streamline energy savings calculations under Article 3 and 7 of the EED, facilitate the implementation of the EED across Member States, and ensure the replicability of streamSAVE methodologies and guidelines all over Europe.
streamSAVE will foster transnational knowledge exchange and dialogue focused on each Priority Action between public authorities, technology experts, and market actors. Finally, these key stakeholders will have improved their energy savings calculation skills.
Priority Actions (PAs) are technical solutions with high energy savings potential. The streamSAVE project will initially target a set of five PAs and engage key stakeholders via diverse activities centred around each one.
Building automation & control systems
Work Package 1 consists of coordinating the technical, legal, financial and administrative aspects of the project as well as monitoring and managing risk.
Work Package 2 will offer templates and guidance to Member States, centered around each Priority Action, to help them streamline and improve their estimations on energy savings and cost effectiveness. The research will start from current practices within Member States and will be shared via the streamSAVE platform.
Work Package 3 aims to develop capacity building among Member States by fostering experience sharing and knowledge exchange through peer-to-peer dialogues centered around each Priority Action. An online forum will be integrated on the streamSAVE platform mirroring the dialogues so that stakeholders can interact according to their needs and preferences.
CAPACITY SUPPORT FACILITY
In Work Package 4, demand-led and direct technical support will be provided on energy savings estimations to the 10 partner Member States. To maximise the replication potential towards all European Member States, the support facility will offer training on the streamSAVE platform to non-partner countries.
COMMUNICATION & STREAMSAVE PLATFORM
Work Package 5 is dedicated to all the communication and dissemination activities, plus the development of the streamSAVE platform.
