The Energy Smart Mediterranean Schools Network project (ESMES), is part of the ENI CBC Med Programme and focuses on the optimization of energy consumption in public schools through innovative, monitoring-based renewable energy and energy efficiency (REEE) pilot actions.
Focus on Lebanon’s Activities
Activity 1: Installation of Smart Energy Meters in Public Schools
As ESMES will focus on the optimization of energy consumption in public schools through innovative, monitoring based renewable energy and energy efficiency (REEE) pilot actions, Activity 1 is related to the installation of Energy Monitoring Equipment which includes all related hardware, infrastructure upgrade and software.
Electrical data will be collected from up to seven (7) schools in Lebanon and thirty-four (34) schools in total in the five (5) partner countries. The data will be automatically collected, stored, processed and published on an online platform that is being developed by GJU in Jordan.
