Project summary

The North-West Europe (NWE) region is key to reach the EU’s target of an increased overall energy efficiency of 32,5% until 2030. The industry in NWE is the largest consumer of fossil energy and needs to take considerable steps in order to reach the objectives. A set of best practices, called Sustainable Asset Management (AM), will help industrial companies to improve energy efficiency and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 

Sustainable AM is contributing to this goal through the consistent application of practical Maintenance, Overhaul, Repair & Engineering (MORE) activities, like equipment isolation, low energy lighting, high-efficiency HVAC, equipment electrification, condition monitoring, preventive maintenance, waste heat capturing, energy management systems, etc. Unfortunately only few companies in NWE are aware of this potential and have actually started with Sustainable Asset Management.

The project MORE4Sustainability aims to promote energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in NWE industry through developing and implementing a training program on Sustainable AM for the target audience of asset managers (technical managers, maintenance managers, engineers, operational managers,etc.). The project will be executed in Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Germany, covering over 80% of the industry in NWE. We focus on manufacturing industries. 

Thanks to the transnational cooperation, we gain a sufficient critical mass to identify best practices and their impact being applied at still a limited number of front runners in the industries, and include them in the training material. The project will enable for the first time to identify the early adopters, document their best practices and the impact on reaching the energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction goals, and, based on these findings, train technical managers in industrial companies throughout NWE to implement Sustainable Asset Management.
