The BESS pilot web-based benchmark application makes it possible to benchmark energy performance against other European participating companies, in an anonymous and confidential way. Click here for more information on the benchmarking system. The application has options for adjustment regard external factors like climate (heating and cooling), capacity utilization, production mix and boiler efficiency. Click here for more information about the adjustment factors.
During the pilot phase the required data for the benchmarking system will be collected by the national-sector administrator. The participating companies can submit data into the web-based application after receiving a unique identification key from their national administrator. For some sectors additional pre-calculation is necessary and you find spreadsheets used for this purpose below.

All information that you input is confidential and cannot be viewed by others. Results will be available after your data are validated and stored into the BESS benchmark database.)
Note: The benchmarking results can be influenced by specific production procedures, the type of companies and other circumstances differing from country to country. Companies taking part in the benchmarking are in the optimum position to interpret their results best and to identify key opportunities to improve their own energy efficiency.
