Energy Innovation Center Teslianum said it started a project entitled Energy Efficiency Network in Western Balkans with LEEN GmbH as a strategic partner, and with the support of the State Government of Baden-Württemberg of Germany and its Ministry for International Cooperation. Project’s main goal is to identify and establish Learning Energy Efficiency Networks (LEEN). Financed by the European funds through the Danube strategy, the project is to be implemented in Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Albania.

The project provides foundation for initiating three types of networks. LEEN for industrial companies, those with annual energy costs over EUR 350,000, has a four-year approach. The network for small and medium enterprises, with annual costs below EUR 350,000, has a one-year approach, and one for municipalities with 20,000–200,000 inhabitants is set for 3.5 years.

During the project, a group of local experienced and non-experienced engineers will be trained and certified and provided with calculation tools and a group of moderators for every entity, the press release said.
