The project goEco, funded by the European programme “Intelligent Energy Europe”, had the goal to develop and to implement energy concepts and action plans in selected business parks in eight European countries.
Business parks (or business district areas) offer various opportunities and synergies for a rational use of energy and an expansion of efficient energy generation technologies (RES, CHP). Especially SMEs in such parks are often facing similar problems to implement cross-sectional (core) technologies for an efficient and sustainable generation and use of energy.
Cooperation between respective companies is a key to tap existing innovation potentials in these technologies. Therefore the main target of goEco was to apply a new co-operative approach to reduce energy consumption and CO2-emissions in existing business parks, i.e. the participative development and implementation of Integrated Energy Concepts for business parks in eight partner countries.
The goEco project was started in January 2013 and has ended in December 2015.
