In the EU-MERCI project, in order to identify and select the "Good Practices", it has been necessary to understand the specificities of the different industrial processes and of the different sectors in the represented Countries. This has been done by preparing two types of documents:
- Technical analyses, in which, for each sector, the main process are described in detail and analysed in terms of energy intensity;
- Country analyses, in which, for each Country, the main economic results of the selected sectors are presented, together with an assessment on the energy use and costs in the Country.
In this section, the statistics parameters characterizing the economic performances of the different sectors in the Countries involved in the project are presented. For most of the Countries, a full overview of all sectors is available. For others, where there are only partners specialized in Food and Beverage sector, only this sector is available.
