Webinar – Supporting EPC market development

Supporting EPC market development through EPC Facilitation Services – Key outputs from the Streetlight-EPC project

 

The Streetlight-EPC project has created demand and supply for Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) in 9 regions by setting up regional EPC facilitation services and supporting projects towards implementation. The facilitation services provided comprehensive support to municipalities (including members of the Covenant of Mayors) and (potential) ESCOs. In the frame of Streetlight-EPC, 30 projects have already been implemented using a variety of EPC models and 10 more with other financing or operational models. In total, 20.4 million Euro have been invested so far.

This webinar will present the project approach, key lessons learnt and conclusions as well examples of implemented projects. A keynote presentation from the European Commission will shed some light on how the “Clean Energy for all Europeans” package may influence the development of the EPC market. Book your place here.
