Set up by the city of Stuttgart (Germany) in 1995, Internal Contracting (Intracting) has already allowed the municipality to implement over 350 energy efficiency measures in public buildings, equipment and facilities generating financial savings of EUR 22 million. Intracting enables the municipality to finance multiple investments aimed at energy savings without being bound to an external contractor. In this process a technical department or a municipally-owned company (‘the client’) submits an energy-saving project.
