The objective of the paper is to create a methodological format regarding energy management within SMEs and to support the implementation of the best proposals in the renewable energy sector. During a major energy crisis, we found that there are very few small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the private sector that have so far undertaken energy management reviews to have a timetable by which they can act for implementation. of energy saving criteria. Lack of funding programs as well as expertise in the green sector is an extremely low priority for energy management within SMEs. The methodological format that I want to develop removes barriers and could encourage SMEs to implement energy management analyzes and the implementation of energy efficiency measures recommended following the analysis. This review of energy management first presents an overview of all systems and technologies tested in the green sector and suggests technical recommendations that contribute to stimulating the adoption of energy management plans in SMEs.
