INESC, particularly the research group UREPE within it, has a considerable experience in rational use of energy (RUE), energy management, load research and DSM activities, as exemplified in item 2.1. Cogeneration assessment was already the aim of a research done for the Portuguese electric utility (EDP), which included several short energy audits to most of the cogeneration plants in Portugal, to collect their power diagrams and other relevant information.

The research group UREPE have a large curriculum in dissemination actions, namely in co-operation with other institutions, in the fields of RUE and integrated resource planning (IRP), as for instance with universities, R&D institutes, energy agencies and professional associations, through seminars, conferences and short courses. Researchers within the group are also involved in lecturing activities at the University of Coimbra and several polytechnic institutes in Portugal, all in fields related to their research activities.
