The European industry and SMEs play a crucial role in meeting the 2030 climate and energy policy objectives. They support the implementation of policies to achieve the set targets and drive technology progress in low-carbon, clean and energy efficient product development worldwide.

SFEM analyses the main standardization needs of relevant stakeholders along the supply chain. Simple, Transparent and Standardized are the keywords driving the whole energy efficiency process from value generation (energy audit) to value capturing (Measurement & Verification, M&V).


CEN and CENELEC are working with industry partners, the European Commission and other stakeholders to develop standards that facilitate the transition to a low-carbon economy. These standards guarantee the spread of best practices and provide energy users with the necessary tools to analyse and adapt their energy consumption patterns.

The CEN and CENELEC Sector Forum Energy Management (SFEM) organized a one-day seminar on energy efficiency and management. The seminar engaged stakeholders and SMEs in the development of framework guidelines and processes integrating energy management with finance to increase benefits and reduce the risk of energy efficiency projects.


Recommendations were formulated in order to enable SMEs and other interested stakeholders benefit from the implementation of energy efficiency measures and the adoption of an energy management system.
