In Spain, the partner responsible for implementing the INDUCE Methodology in the 5 Spanish pilot companies is CIRCE (Research Centre for Energy Resources and Consumption), with the support of the consortium partner FIAB (the Spanish Food and Drink Industries).
The training activities in the pilot companies were planned regarding different previous assessments that analysed the respective needs and expectations of each company in terms of energy, energy efficiency and an in relation to an Energy Management System. The situation of each of the five pilot companies in Spain was completely different, although their interest in energy was quite similar. In the case of this country, taking into account the Spanish regulations on Energy Audits (RD 56/2016), some of the companies, due to the fact that these regulations apply to them, were familiar with the framework of an Energy Audit, including the usefulness of ISO 50001, instead of the others where it did not apply to them and therefore had to be considered in the training. For this reason, not only was the method used in each company different, but also the topics to be covered were adapted to each circumstance.
