EPC - Energy Performance Contracting

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

A project pipeline of over 30 buildings has been developed by the project of which five have been fully renovated. Like many other Eastern European countries, Latvia has a significant stock of multi-family buildings that were built between 1954 and the late 1980s, never fully renovated and bear huge energy saving potentials.

Delivering services to buildings based on an Active building Energy Performance Contracting (AEPC) model provides a new opportunity to Energy Service Companies (ESCOs and grid operators) aiming to generate new business or improve existing ones, while lowering GHG emissions.   ESCOs can play an important role as aggregators of implicit Demand Response in buildings, as electrification (in combination with active control) based on demand response to variable pricing seems to be the key to a successful business case.

Improving energy efficiency in public buildings is at the core of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) and Energy Performance Building Directive (EPBD).   The eCentral project aims to support key stakeholders in the energy renovation of public buildings, to promote the benefits of nZEBs – nearly zero energy buildings, and to deploy innovative financing schemes.

Given that new EU resources must ensure EU economic recovery while aligning investment with the objectives of the European Green Deal, now is the time to ensure short-term measures are put in place to facilitate immediate action, as well as long-term energy savings. Energy service companies (ESCOs) can play a key role in providing energy savings solutions to be paid back over long-term energy performance contracts (EnPCs).

Energy Performance Contracts (EPCs) are contractual arrangements typically between a building owner and an energy service company (‘ESCO’), where the ESCO invests in energy efficiency measures and guarantees energy savings over the duration of the contract. By linking compensation to the performance of the implemented projects, the client pays for actual savings and not for the investment.

The idea is that by cooperating with demand response aggregators, ESCOs can access both energy efficiency savings and revenues from offering the site’s flexibility to the grid, thus enabling faster repayment of the initial investments. An Enhanced Energy Performance Contract (EPC) will guarantee building owners a minimum level of energy savings and occupant comfort whilst ensuring that a maximum value can be extracted from the flexibility potential of on-site energy assets.
