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.

In 21 case studies, the EUKI project BEACON evaluated national climate policies in European countries. The Latvian Baltic Energy Efficiency Facility (LABEEF) is a company that was founded in 2016 to facilitate the deep renovation of the Latvian housing sector, which is dominated by prefabricated high-rise buildings erected between 1941 and 1992 during era of Soviet occupation.

The project is part of the 2014-2015 Programme of Energy Renovation of Public Sector Buildings, adopted by the Croatian Government in 2013. This Programme has generated 57 public procurement procedures for the provision of EPC, 21 signed contracts for 68 buildings (total floor area: 225.000 m2 ), and € 125 million of total investment, for 70 million kWh of expected energy savings.

The split incentives dilemma may be the single most significant challenge to the economisation of energy efficiency projects worldwide. The Triple Win approach can be a solution.
The split incentive dilemma is a problem that when a building owner invests in energy savings, the benefits are not enjoyed by the owner but the user, which results in a severe modernisation backlog.
