- Quantification of synergies between Energy Efficiency first principle and renewable energy systems

As a response to the European Commission’s 2050 decarbonization goals, sEEnergies uniquely considers all aspects of the Energy Efficiency (EE) First Principle. By applying it in sectors and markets, country-by-country and grid-by-grid, and by combining temporal and spatial analyses, sEEnergies will develop an innovative, holistic and research-based EE-modelling approach.

The overall aim of sEEnergies is to quantify and operationalize the potentials for energy efficiency in buildings, transport, and industry. The project goes beyond state-of-the-art science-based knowledge and methods, as it combines sectorial bottom-up knowledge with hour-by-hour modeling of the energy systems and spatial analysis in the EU.

In the sEEnergies project, we contribute to the mapping and the quantification of energy efficiency potentials by location as well as to a better understanding of the local geographies of efficient energy systems.


The project aims at developing a regional heat atlas with a lean-data approach. It is being funded by EK.SH, the Energy and Climate research funding platform of Schleswig-Holstein with industrial partnership of Gottburg Energie- und Wärmetechnik GmbH & Co. KG.

Heat Roadmap Europe 4

HRE4 aims to develop low-carbon heating and cooling strategies, called Heat Roadmaps, by quantifying and implementing changes at the national level for 14 EU Member States. HRE4 is funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 695989, and addresses topic EE-14-2015 "Removing market barriers to the uptake of efficient heating and cooling solutions" of the Energy-efficiency Call. EEM contributes with a further development of Peta, including detailed mapping of demands and supply, extensive data input for energy systems analysis and an online mapping platform.


The STRATEGO project (2014-2016) was a European co-funded project developed in the framework of the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme. The purpose of the project was to provide tangible support in developing National Heating and Cooling Plans; assist local authorities in evaluating their Heating and Cooling potential; find their priority area for intervention; and identify concrete projects that should be implemented. EEM contributed to Stratego with Peta, the Pan-European Thermal Atlas.
