Increasing energy efficiency in industrial/manufacturing water processes across the EU and supporting the industry with capacity building tools

Energy Water logo

This mission driven project aims to increase the uptake of energy efficiency in industrial/manufacturing water processes across the EU and support the industry through the provision of capacity building tools. The project will do this by increasing available information about potential energy savings and developing skilled experts that can support implementation of such savings. The EnergyWater project targets manufacturing companies and energy efficiency specialists in the EU. The project is funded by the European Commission (EASME) and will run through to January 2019. The project leverages expertise from across Europe with 10 consortium partners representing the UK, Ireland, Italy, France, Spain, Greece, Belgium and Cyprus.

The objectives of the project are to:

  • Reduce energy costs in industrial water processes by 20%
  • Generate a total reduction of 26 GWh/year at the end of the project
  • Upskill 200 energy managers and auditors
  • Influence energy efficiency regulation through the involvement of public authorities.

The EnergyWater project will provide support through the development of two unique and innovative approaches to meet its objectives: The Energy Management Self-Assessment (EMSA) website and the Energy Angels Network.

Energy Management Self-Assessment (EMSA) web tool

The Energy Management Self-Assessment (EMSA) website is a free tool for companies to self-asses the efficiency of their water processes and receive recommendations to improve energy performance. The EMSA tool is anonymous and will also allow companies to benchmark themselves against similar European companies.

Apply for free support

As EMSA Lite has been launched, we are looking for applicant companies to benefit from free support from Carbon Trust energy professionals. The energy professionals will help input data into the EMSA tool for quick benchmarking results and general recommendations for water systems. There will then be an opportunity for a free expert consultation over the telephone for further advice. If you are interested in this support then please apply below.

Energy Angel

Energy Angels Network

The Energy Angels network will improve the availability of skilled energy auditors and energy managers as well as suppliers and funders. The network is a platform for companies or individual professionals working in the field of energy efficiency (ESCOs, research centres, energy auditors, technology suppliers, etc.) to support and implement energy efficiency improvements in water processes. The Energy Angels will also help companies apply the EMSA web tool, understand its results, and thereafter suggest recommendations and offer implementation support.

If you are interested in joining the Energy Angels Network, sign up to join. We will contact interested applicants with further details and training for use of the EMSA web tool.


The EnergyWater project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 696112.
