The PROMETHEUS project has got the objective of helping enterprises (especially SMEs - Small and Medium Enterprises) to strengthen their position in the market of energy services. It will give instruments and support to all European SMEs that are providing or wish to provide their customers, both private citizens and other SMEs, with energy services (installation of small scale RES, energy audits, energy certification of buildings, production and supply of RES and Energy Efficient products, etc.). By setting quality standards and guarantee systems for energy services, this project will contribute to reduce the confusion and lack of trust that are currently stopping final customers from purchasing energy services. PROMETHEUS will also define organisation methods (and possibly replicable models) and give recommendations to be used by SMEs trade associations and other decision makers in order to provide sound and transparent energy services to customers. Thanks to this project SMEs will get deeper participation in the political process, augmented transparency of services and trust by costumers, and opportunity to join in SME energy clusters.
