The De-risking Energy Efficiency Platform (DEEP) is an open-source initiative to up-scale energy efficiency investments in Europe through the improved sharing and transparent analysis of existing projects in buildings and industry.
This database for energy efficiency investments performance monitoring and benchmarking was launched by the Energy Efficiency Financial Institutions Group (EEFIG) in the context of its De-risking project. DEEP is the largest pan-EU, open-source evidence-base containing over 7800 industrial and buildings-related energy efficiency projects from 25 data providers including large companies, public banks, private investment funds, financial institutions and ESCOs.
The platform provides detailed analysis and evidence on the performance of energy efficiency investments to support the assessment of the benefits and financial risks, including factsheets and case studies of financial institutions deploying capital into energy efficiency.
DEEP is a new source of operational risk management information, which will help project developers, financiers and investors better assess the risks and benefits of energy efficiency investments across Europe by increasing transparency, facilitating performance monitoring and benchmarking.
