Project description The overall objective of the GREENFOODS project is to lead the European food and beverage industry to high energy efficiency and reduction of fossil carbon emissions in order to ensure and foster the world wide competitiveness, improve the security of energy supply and guarantee the sustainable production in Europe. The GREENFOODS branch concept will guide the user to identify tailor-made solutions for “green production” for SMEs in the different subsectors in the food and beverage industry by combining technological expertise with knowledge on energy efficiency and renewable resources resulting in clear strategies for SMEs for process optimisation and energy supply towards a production without fossil carbon emissions. Furthermore, the GREENFOODS training module integrated as a sector-specific training module in existing energy management trainings such as the European Energy Manager as well as a stand-alone course will be established. Special funding schemes will be developed to facilitate the implementation of identified energy efficiency potentials in SMEs by comparing and analysing existing funding systems. Applying the GREENFOODS approach, 200 energy audits will be performed including 20 detailed audits and 5 selected SMEs for the implementation of the concepts. In the participating countries “virtual energy competence centres – VECC” will be installed and will work as one stop shop service centre.
