The ICCEE project (2019-2022) facilitated the food and beverage sector cold chains to undertake energy efficiency measures after carrying out supply chain energy assessments / audits. Why focus on the cold chains of the sector? Because of its significant stages (refrigerated transport, processing and storage) with large energy saving potential.
The project followed a holistic approach, shifting from a single company perspective to the chain assessment, which led to increased opportunities for energy efficiency measures.
Through expert analytical tools and dedicated stakeholder capacity building programmes, the project accelerated turning energy efficiency opportunities into actual investments, with a special focus on supply chains involving European small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
E-learning platform - industrial energy efficiency
Interested in rising your skills on industrial refrigeration energy efficiency by e-learning? ICCEE aimed at turning energy efficiency opportunities of food and beverage companies into actual investments and finding out opportunities to improve the overall cold chain steps. With this aim, a full capacity building program dedicated to improving the energy performance through direct training and e-learning has been designed and created by a team of experts coming from both the private and public sector. ICCEE invites you to participate in our e-learning training course on energy efficiency in food and beverage cold supply chains designed for experts and non-experts in this field. The course is accessible by anyone, free of charge and prepared for self-studying, with an estimate duration of 6 to 20 hours depending on the current background. The topics include:
Energy efficiency in the food and beverage sector
Energy performance indicators
Energy Management System based on ISO50001 and Measurement and Verification (IPMVP)
Energy saving opportunities and best practices
Financial analysis and funding opportunities
LCA and LCC
Non-Energy Benefits (NEBs) and behavioural aspects
ICCEE tool introduction (optional, in some countries available)
The e-learning courses are available in English, French, German, Dutch, Romanian, Italian, Spanish, Latvian and Greek.
