Moderators and consultant engineers

STM subcontracts moderators and consulting engineers who support the LEEN Brasov and its members. To ensure the high quality of services for the Energy Efficiency Network members, those experts are certified following to an intense training program and knowledge transfer from LEEN experts.

The consultant engineer carries out the energy review and the monitoring. Consultant engineers have sound experience in providing energy consultancy services for the industrial sector. The consultant engineer has a holistic approach to energy flows within a plant and names technically and economically evaluated optimization measures, from which the companies’ savings potentials are derived.

The moderator conducts the network meetings, prepares and follows them up, and informs the companies. The moderator is the contact partner for the companies and promotes the direct exchange of experiences among the network participants.

Members: contractual partners

The members cooperate actively in the Network and, in particular, share their experiences concerning energy efficiency measures already implemented and their economic efficiency.
