Social Housing operators and ESCOs from Bulgaria, France, Italy and the united Kingdom participate in the project.
Four pilot sites have been identified. FRESH will work out the technical and monitoring measures, along with the many contractual, legal and financial issues of EPC. The results will be monitored on the long run and dissemination activities will raise awareness about the opportunities but also pitfalls lying in EPC for comprehensive refurbishment programmes.
Specific results expected from the project are:
- Tested implementation of energy performance contracts for comprehensive refurbishments in the social housing sector in France, UK, Italy and Bulgaria.
- Concrete tools which social housing organisations and energy service companies can use to implement energy performance contracts.
- Informed stakeholders and professional branches at national and European level, involved continuously throughout the project.
Planned completion date for the project is 31/05/2012.
