E2DRIVER – Training on energy audits as an Energy Efficiency DRIVER for the automotive sector

E2Driver is a project financed by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme under the call for proposals EE-8-2018: Capacity building programmes to support the implementation of energy audits.


Mov’eo is a partner of the project coordinated by the Spanish research centre CIRCE

The cluster is playing a central role for the French stakeholders involved, notably SMEs and decision-makers. Engie is also involved and will bring his expertise.

E2Driver has started on the first of June 2019 and will last 36 months. 


The mission


E2DRIVER aims at developping a collaborative-cooperative training platform boosting the automotive supply industry collective intelligence on energy efficiency. The platform will provide access to training material, online lessons, guidelines, energy and financial tools, virtual reality modules and a community of key actors in the sector for SMEs to undergo energy audits and implement their recommendations. E2DRIVER training methodology will enable the development of specific training plan itineraries based on the company’s needs and trainees’ role in the company, which will increase the effectiveness of the training sessions and the awareness on energy issues among the staff.


The development of E2DRIVER platform will not be a static action resulting from the project execution but will enable a continuous update of the training material, best practices, benchmarking analysis and guidelines due to the implementation of an ontological flip teaching method, which enables trainees to generate their own knowledge and training materials to be shared through E2DRIVER cooperative networks.



The implementation

E2DRIVER platform will be tested and validated in 40 companies from the automotive supply industry in four  countries that represent over 50% of the EU employees in this sector: Spain, France, Italy and Germany. Moreover, a total of 60 trainers will be certified in E2DRIVER training methodology,

As one of the 4 European Clusters involved, Mov’eo will perform engagement activities and contribute to the dissemination of E2DRIVER. The main objective of Mov’eo activities will be to involve automotive companies in the project that could be interested in the training as well as a wide network of stakeholders that could provide their inputs and feedback to the project development and participate in E2DRIVER network. 


Already 3 SMEs have expressed their interest in E2DRIVER: Nanomakers, Manuplast and ACGB. Join them !



The project in the framework of Horizon 2020 Programme aims at enhancing the role and importance of energy efficiency in the companies: E2Driver is composed by

  • three well-known RTDs (CIRCE, FRAUNHOFER, POLITO)
  • four National Associations (SERNAUTO, AEN, MESAP, MOV’EO)
  • five enterprises with innovation capacities (EPROPLAN, SINERGIE, ENGIE, EPC, MERIT) from five different countries (Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Belgium).

This partnership structure provides the complementary and critical mass to accomplish the project goals successfully in terms of timing, quality and costs, ensuring that no partner is missing for the aimed activities.
