Work with Residents


This document is the most important outcome with the Energy Services Inventory.
The Service Inventory contains around 140 examples of Energy Services in all European member states. The manuals are brief descriptions of the Energy Services, obstacles and drivers for Energy Services, methodologies to develop Energy Services, practical examples of the development of this services and - last but not least - strategies for the implementation of Energy Services.


The manual is a collection of practical implementation of a kind of Energy Service.


The energy services manual will be published in several languages (English, German, French, Spanish and Dutch version) and is based on a broad information database about energy services in Europe (Energy Services Inventory).                                                   
At this stage of the project - that will end in May 2010 - the document analysed is a draft document and not the Manual that will be available in some months.
