The EMSPI project aims to promote actions for increase the energy efficiency at European small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) of the Printing Industry by promoting the implementation of Energy Management System based on the global standard ISO 50001.
A specific adaptation of the global standard ISO 50001 for the energy management in printing SMEs and sector-specific implementation guidelines.
To enhance the awareness on the benefits of energy efficiency tools will be developed for the Printing Industry stakeholders in the European countries.
Goal is: awareness of 300 SME’s per participating country on energy efficiency and energy management.
An analysis and assessment of the current situation in the printing industry will be made in terms of Energy Management. According to Energy Management Systems’ standards (EN16001, ISO 50001), defining an energy baseline is the first step to take to implement such systems. Analyzing energy sources, equipment and tools used in the printing industry will help to define the baseline.
All the information analysed in the previous work package will be used to establish energy use parameters in the printing industry by means of producing Energy Indicators.
Gathered information regarding energy use and management, specific project materials to implement the Energy Management System will be developed. Standard materials will be created using as benchmark EN 16001 and ISO 50001 and will be used as guideline for Energy Management System adapted standard development.
Information and tools to maximize the benefits associated to the implementation of the Energy Standard including strategic and operational criteria (green marketing techniques, KPI environmental indicators, quality control and analysis of ESCOs’ involvement potential) will be developed.
An adapted Energy Management System for the printing industry will be implemented in 100 SMEs with the help of consultants/Energy Managers to enhance the awareness of industrial associations and SMEs in the European Printing Industry.
Awareness will be created trough communication and dissemination activities of the project in order to increase the external communication and visibility of the project activities and results.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT STANDARDIZATION IN PRINTING INDUSTRY
The project aims to promote actions to increase the energy efficiency at European small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) of the Printing Industry by promoting the implementation of Energy Management System based on the global standard ISO 50001.
In the short term the following results are expected:
- 100 SME’s with a fulfilled energy management system according to EN 16001 and/or ISO 50001 and potentials on energy efficiency improvement.
- 40000 GJ, 880 ton CO2 and 915.000 € of potential savings during the project lifetime
- Awareness of 300 SME’s per country on energy efficiency and energy management and how to use tools and project materials within the industry in each country, through direct and indirect dissemination activities.
In the longer run, the project create a “critical mass” or multiplier effect at industry level in order to expand the developed set of tools and specific communication materials
