Project START2ACT has been doing on-site capacity building activities for SMEs for more than one year. This summer the online activities for SMEs and startups called “energy saving platform” have been fully launched. The platform offers you a wide range of information and advices how to save the energy in your office and at home.
ON-SITE CAPACITY BUILDING ACTIVITIES for SMEs
The START2ACT on-site capacity building activities are free-of-charge consultancy sessions that are delivered by the project partners to young SMEs in the involved START2ACT countries. The aim of this programme is to assist the young SMEs in identifying and embracing measures for energy efficiency at their companies through a series of three visits by the consultants of the START2ACT partners. As simple and no-cost measures have the potential to lead to significant energy savings, START2ACT emphasises behavioural change towards energy efficiency of the entire workforce as a key message of the project.
