Energy Efficiency in Industrial Processes (EEIP) is a free, neutral, and open, business & policy multi-lingual platform for energy transition. At its core is the idea that the energy transition requires more than technical solutions but sound business cases, and that market growth can be accelerated through information and best practice exchange. In practice, EEIP network users are coming from organisations of all sizes (from SMEs to multinationals), all sectors (e.g. users, technology and services providers, finance, IT, consultancies, policy) and covering the entire value chain, in other words supply and demand side.
Launched at the European Commission in April 2011, EEIP is set up as a not-for-profit in order to facilitate open and inclusive dialogue within market participants and between market participants and EU policymakers. EEIP is financing its operations through platform services such as content marketing or externally funded projects.
The key to EEIPs success is its neutrality and innovative “Go-Where-People-Are” approach.
Set-up as a decentralized platform, everybody can connect to EEIP wherever and however they want: from website to social media, from newsletter to magazines, from conferences to webinars. Currently, EEIP has 150.000 network users. Being established as a trusted partner by organisations such as the European Commission, the International Energy Agency or the G20 via the IPEEC G20 Energy Efficiency Finance Task Group, EEIP operates a global network as well as executes market analysis, business modelling, communication and dissemination activities for EU projects and international initiatives, EEIP perfectly fits the role of support to actions in communication, dissemination and engagement of stakeholders.
EEIP uses communications, engagement and ‘best practice’ exchange to contribute to the goal of achieving functioning energy transition markets.
