The transformation of the sector is key considering the importance of food and beverage in energy consumption and CO2 emissions and energy efficiency is one of the answers. Deger Saygin reminds the project complexity, with many different processes, and varying energy demand for different food products.
A survey and first interviews were conducted, resulting in 75% of the food sector participants (over 60 participants across Europe) saying that they see benefits besides lower energy bills when thinking about energy efficiency measures.
Now in development: LCA and LCC tools / model as well as an e-learning module. The first capacity building programme actions are planned. Stay tuned!
