Energy Efficiency Audit
Following the EU Acquis Audit and the EU Solvency Audit activities, a third “service” by the name of Energy Efficiency is developed in the TEBD project. The objective of this activity is to develop capacity and knowledge within Turkish Chambers and Commodity Exchanges, which will allow them to advise SMEs/members on how they can reduce their energy consumption, and thus become more competitive and raise the awareness on Energy Efficiency.
The Energy Efficiency activity took place Online in May 2021, hosting 35 Turkish representatives from 29 Turkish Chambers of Commerce and/or Industry, and Commodity Exchanges. The trainings were divided into two sessions; the first one took place between 4-5 May 2021 and the second one between 25-26 May 2021. During the trainings, the EU Experts explained how to use the Energy Efficiency Toolkit they previously developed (an overview of the Energy Efficiency, Questionnaire, Checklists, etc). Experts from the Turkish Ministry of Energy intervened also in the second training to explain the overview of the existing and upcoming legislation, as well as update on available grants in the frame of the Energy Efficiency in Turkey. Some Turkish Chambers and Commodity Exchanges also shared their experiences, and best practices in the field.
Following these trainings, each participant committed to carry out 10 Energy Efficiency visits to member companies and draft a report with comprehensive overview of the potential for further Energy Efficiency actions within these Turkish companies.
