Cost savings through improved energy efficiency
Finland has committed to a significant reduction in its carbon dioxide emissions during the forthcoming decades as outlined in the EU’s decision. The decision implementation is controlled nationally with, for example, climate and energy strategy measure programs and legislation. Finland’s emission reductions also require the implementation of voluntary energy efficiency agreements and energy audits. However, the official energy audits are laborious and costly especially for micro and small-sized companies. Therefore, many smaller companies have been left out of the work in promoting energy efficiency. They will also lose out on significant cost savings potential.
1) Light energy review model for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)

5) Communication and project results
New service business possibilities
The project will create an adoptable, easy to use model to promote energy efficiency that may be tailored to different types of small and medium-sized enterprises. The adoptable model will enable reviews that will established current energy efficiency, and enable measures needed to achieve possible energy savings. The project will promote energy efficiency in the local businesses, increase the awareness of renewable energies, as well as, create new type of business opportunities in South Savo (Finland) area.
