A new European Project “EINSTEIN - II”, co-funded within the Programme Intelligent Energy Europe, began on the 1st July 2010, with a duration of 2 years until June 2012.

Within this IEE project, trainings on EINSTEIN (in spring 2011) and thermal energy audits in industry and in the tertiary sector will be performed in Austria, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Slovakia, Spain and UK.

A version 2.0 of the EINSTEIN software tool and methodology will be developed, which will include the possibility to check non-industrial buildings of the tertiary sector, and – an important improvement – to analyse the cooling and air conditioning loads.

Moreover EINSTEIN-II will strive to contribute with its energy audit methodology to the standardisation activities ongoing on energy auditing and energy management  at European level.

The project Partners of the new project EINSTEIN-II are:

  • energyXperts.NET, Spain (coordinator)
  • AEE INTEC – Institute for Sustainable Technologies, Austria
  • Austrian Energy Agency, Austria

The EINSTEIN Expert-System Software Tool

The EINSTEIN methodology is supported by an expert system software tool that guides the user through the whole auditing procedure spanning from data acquisition, processing and estimation to the design and quantitative (energetic and economic) evaluation of alternative solutions.


Training and certification

A standard training programme on the EINSTEIN methodology has been developed. This training programme consists of introductory and advanced training courses, together with the possibility for trainees to carry out a project work and obtain certification as an EINSTEIN energy auditor.
