The tasks of IREES in this project were the initiation and support of 10 pilot networks, further development of the LEEN management system comprising the complete procedure for the networks and of monitoring, the training of consulting engineers and moderators for this work, and part of the accompanying scientific research (e.g. regarding the transaction costs for the implementation of efficiency measures within the framework of the network).
In addition, three partners of the consortium developed a large number of electronic investment calculation tools for energy efficiency investments and investment opportunities in renewable energy. Here IREES had the task of carrying out practical tests and supporting tool development, including a common user interface. These tools are available to every consulting engineer upon payment of a nominal fee.
The progress of the project was reported via the Internet, a semi-annual newsletter and annual and regional conferences.
