The LiCEA project will boost the energy savings of Slovak SMEs
The new LiCEA project will be implemented in Slovakia. It will focus on SMEs in plastic industrial sector. The principle of project lies in determination, implementation and long-term usage of Life Cycle Energy Audit. Relevant SMEs can participate and catch the benefits of energy saving opportunities.
Thanks to LiCEA Slovak SMEs will be able to identify their energy use and save at least 5% of energy inputs. The project is co-funded by the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme co-financed by the ERDF.
Nowadays is a big competitive advantage to understand how the energy flows within the company´s processes influence overall economic situation. The project called LiCEA (Life Cycle Energy Audit) focuses on the development and implementation of SMART tools in order to discover unexploited energy savings opportunities inside manufacturing process.
As a result Slovak SMEs will be able to identify their energy use and save at least 5% of energy inputs. Moreover the project has a Life Cycle Analysis approach, so there are foreseen long-term outputs of the project. All Slovak SMEs working in plastic industrial sector are welcomed to participate in the project and catch the benefits from that.
In the beginning of the project, there will be defined guidelines for application of an energy audit in a life cycle perspective towards Slovak SMEs. LiCEA will be tested and demonstrated on the Slovak SMEs during second half of 2014. In the end of the testing phase the feedback in direction to the project partners will enable adjustment and improvement of SMART tools for more exact energy analysis and its dissemination through the Local Energy Agencies operating in Slovakia.
This project is implemented through the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme co-financed by the ERDF.
