The Italian and Spanish pilots of the E2DRIVER project are in progress

The E2DRIVER project, funded by the H2020 European program, is aimed at improving the automotive industry‘s knowledge of energy efficiency measures, a key priority for the EU’s sustainable growth strategy. Despite extensive energy efficiency measures, SMEs still suffer from a knowledge gap in this area and, in particular, are among the largest energy consumers in Europe.

Several companies, from various European countries, have decided to participate in the project precisely to increase their energy efficiency and thus contribute to the global effort to reduce carbon emissions.
The pilot actions in progress see in particular the participation of three Italian companies – our member F.O.M.T. S.p.A. and S.I.V.E. S.p.A., and Mollebalestra – and two Spanish companies – FAE and Grupo Mecacontrol.
Do you want to get to know the companies, understand their motivation for participating in the E2DRIVER project and, above all, their commitment to reducing energy consumption?

Starting from July we will activate the Call for Interest dedicated to companies interested in participating in the replication phase. For more information write to f.fallarini@mesap.it
