The Value of Energy Management Practices in the Business Sector

PARIS REINFORCE researchers participated in the The Value of Energy Management Practices in the Business Sector” online event, organised by INZEB and The Hellenic-Dutch Association of Commerce and Industry (HeDA), which took place on the 15th of October 2020. The event presented the developments and benefits of an effective Energy Management System (EnMS) within organisational structures. Participants had the opportunity to discuss the importance of improving energy efficiency, which not only reduces capital expenditure but offers a number of additional benefits including reduced risk to energy compliance failures, improved facilities performances, increased competitiveness, and ROI.

On behalf of PARIS REINFORCE, the project coordinator, Assoc. Prof. Haris Doukas, participated in the event and presented “Opportunities and Threats towards a Sustainable Transition of the Industrial Sector”. The presentation discussed findings on industrial low-carbon transition potential in the iron and steel, cement and chemicals sectors, from the recent PARIS REINFORCE open access publication “The UK and German Low-Carbon Industry Transitions from a Sectoral Innovation and System Failures Perspective” in the scientific journal Energies.
