In its activities and plans, SCOoPE project involved directly energy-intense agro-food industries to implement cross-cutting and collaborative energy management systems addressed to reduce their energy consumption, and spread the gained knowledge to technicians, businesses managers, and energy and agro-food institutions. Project objective was to reduce energy consumption at a short term in a range between 10% and 15% directly in 81 businesses belonging to the agro-food target sectors as defined in the project itself. This reduction must be achieved without any decrease in the production capacity of the companies and maintaining correct socioeconomic and environmental conditions. Project pursued larger savings in the medium term with new affordable energy solutions, specifically by developing the concept of “Collaborative Energy Management Systems”. Pilot industrial clusters was run in order to prove the improvements of total energy consumptions and its associated costs, achieved by using common procedures based on ISO 50.001, and to encourage target groups to reduce their energy consumption, following the example of the directly involved companies.
