Numbers, data, facts:

The considerable CO2, energy and cost savings, which are determined by the European energy managers with their project work, show that EUREM is the right way to implement energy efficiency in industrial practice and thus to achieve economic and ecological benefits.

Continuous evaluation of the EUREM project work (Energy Concepts) have revealed worldwide that each European EnergyManager achieved the following average savings with his/her project work develooped in the EUREM training:

  • Energy savings per energy manager: 750 MWh / yr

  • Cost savings per energy manager: ≥ 30,000 EUR / a

  • CO2 reduction per energy manager: ≥ 200 t / a


The majority of operational projects pay off in two to three years.
It is pleasing to note that on average more than 75 percent, i.e. three out of four, of the energy efficiency projects developed by the European EnergyManagers during the EUREM training are implemented at the end.

The energy saving potential identified by the European EnergyManagers in the EUREM courses is in the order of 2,250 million GWh/a. This corresponds to the energy consumption of 562,500 households or about one third of the annual electricity production of a nuclear power plant.

Therefore, EUREM is a tried and tested instrument for achieving the energy and climate policy targets of the European Union by 2020.
