As a response to the European Commission’s 2050 decarbonization goals, sEEnergies uniquely considers all aspects of the Energy Efficiency (EE) First Principle. By applying it in sectors and markets, country-by-country and grid-by-grid, and by combining temporal and spatial analyses, sEEnergies will develop an innovative, holistic and research-based EE-modelling approach.

The overall aim of sEEnergies is to quantify and operationalize the potential for energy efficiency (EE) in buildings, transport and industry, by combining bottom-up knowledge with temporary and spatial analyzes to develop an innovative, holistic and research-based EE modeling strategy in addition to current scientific-based knowledge and methods.
