The following tool has been developed in the frame of the ODYSSEE-MURE project which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme.
Standardised easy-to-use energy check tool (energy audit) for SMEs in five different crafts: Bulgarian carpenters, German bakers, Greek bricklayer/glass producer/ painter producer, Irish small food producers and Spanish meat producers.
ENSI-EAB (Energy Auditing of Buildings) software is a tool for calculating the energy performance of buildings. The software is suitable for energy auditing of new and existing buildings and for building certification but requiring a license. The EAB Software is calculating the total, annual energy use of the building, divided into seven budget items: Heating, Ventilation (heating), Domestic hot water, Cooling, Fans & pumps, Lighting, Various equipment.
Energy renovation of existing buildings is one of the priorities within the development of sustainable use of energy. Due to the importance and the size of the task, the Ministry of Infrastructure (MZI) in Slovenia established an Office for energy renovation of buildings in October of 2015. The office consists of experts from the fields of construction, engineering, law, and economics, which together manage all aspects of this measure.
The Energy Advisory Handbook was prepared as a starting point for future Energy Advisers, i.e. participants of the Energy Advisers Course. The manual contains all the information handled within the Course that provides basic knowledge of the thermal protection of buildings, energy consumption in heating, cooling, ventilation and domestic hot water, and electricity consumption for lighting and electrical appliances. Special chapters are dedicated to the application of renewable energy in households, as well as the economic assessment of energy efficiency projects.
The Handbook is conceived as a tool for the energy auditors while visiting the client’s premises, and during the analysis and diagnosis phases. The Handbook is focused on Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), which do not have an internal specialist for energy management and need an external support not only for the diagnostics but also for designing the main measures, selecting the necessary suppliers and supervise the implementation works.
