In this article, attempt has been made to identify the energy efficiency gap in SME (Small Scale Enterprises) and LME (Large Scale Enterprises) in France and the various models involved in overcoming this barrier. These models involve implementing several techniques like Energy Audit or contracting energy management to a third-party organization. This paper also discusses the motivating factors behind top-level management for implementing energy efficient practices in an energy intensive organization. Finally, this article also discusses the importance of energy management technology and the use of implementing them in real world.
