STEP up! aims at reducing electricity consumption by promoting electricity-related measures across technologies, actors and sectors (open tender). In closed tenders, the project will also address specific sectors with known large potential and constraints. As a competitive tendering scheme, STEP up! awards the funding to bids for measures with the most economic cost-benefit ratio (euro per saved kWh).
