About Energy Efficiency Specialists (EUREM)

The "Oil Age" is coming to an end; energy costs are skyrocketing and breaking one record after another. There appears to be no change in sight since energy consumption is increasing rapidly in newly industrialized countries. One further megatrend is the protection of climate and environment. It is certain that human beings have significantly contributed to the greenhouse effect. Therefore, every effort has to be done to reduce damaging greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide (CO2).This idea of environmental protection and the high energy costs drive more and more enterprises to reduce their energy consumption and to improve their energy efficiency.

Increasing energy efficiency is precisely the task of the Energy Efficiency Specialists (EUREM): They promote company-wide energy savings and hence contribute to climate protection. The energy concepts of more than 2,000 trained energy specialists resulted in energy savings of 1,500,000 MWh, cost savings of €60 million per year, a CO2 reduction of 400,000 tonnes per year and investments of

€200 million.

The goals of the EUREM project








The EUREM project aims to:

  • train and qualify specialists
  • build up a network of experts
  • intensify the transfer of knowledge and technology
  • share information and experience
  • improve the competitiveness of companies
  • support energy efficiency technologies and export activities
  • promote environmental and climate protection world-wide

EUREM is not only a continuing education programme, but also a global networking community of energy efficiency experts. The participants and graduates regularly meet on conferences, workshops and online platforms to exchange experiences, get information on current energy topics and help each other with various tasks.
