Im Rahmen des ECO-Build EU-Projekts beschäftigte sich die TSB mit Möglichkeiten zur Steigerung der Energieeffizienz des Gebäudebestandes durch Energy Performance Contracting. In einem eigenständigen Papier wurden alle Erkenntnisse zum Thema Energy Contracting sowie zum "Pay As You Save" als mögliches Finanzierungsmodell in einem Papier zusammengefasst. Es bietet einen Überblick über die aktuellen Lage sowie Vorschläge - in erster Linie an die EU, aber auch an andere Akteure gerichtet - um das Potential von Energy Performance Contracting auszuschöpfen.

The IEE USE Efficiency project intends to create a common stream for energy efficiency systems in university buildings. Universities and students are proposed as shining examples both for energy efficiency solutions and for energy efficiency behaviour. The Project involves 10 EU countries (9 Universities and 4 market players), and has the aim to improve energy efficiency in university buildings and to establish training programs for students.

Energieeffizienzprojekte entlasten die öffentlichen Kassen und schaffen Handlungsspielräume für Kommunen. Möglichkeiten zum Energiesparen gibt es viele, von der Neustrukturierung des öffentlichen Nahverkehrs über die Schulung von Hausmeistern zu Energiemanagern bis zur energetischen Sanierung von Verwaltungsgebäuden. Kommunen können mit ihrem Engagement für Energieeffizienz und Klimaschutz eine wichtige Vorbildfunktion einnehmen, für andere Städte- und Gemeindeverwaltungen genauso wie für Unternehmen und Bürger.
