Energy Performance Contracting

Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) is provision of energy services with a guaranteed outcome. The key principle is that the investments are financed from the resulting savings.  It is a well-tested and successful tool that has been helping building owners reach their energy and climate targets more quickly than with traditional implementation of energy saving measures. Still there is potential for more use of EPC to reach unrealised saving potential in the public sector.

To promote the use of EPC a Guide to Energy Performance Contracting is developed. The guide introduces an improved implementation model based on the present market situation and experiences in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The main novelty aspect being contract-based partnership during the analysis phase of EPC projects.

The toolbox includes a description of adapted tender documents proposing new selection criteria better suited to the goals of public building owners, as well as contract templates, an EPC presentation and a step-by-step guideline for starting up an EPC project.

All the Toolbox elements can be downloaded below.
