Capacity Building Workshop #2

Financial models for energy performance contracting: The STEPPING Tools

8 JUNE 2021 H. 14:00 - 16:00 CEST

STEPPING project aimed at promoting the preparation of energy efficiency investment in public buildings using Energy Performance Contracts (EPS). As this type of contracts are innovative and require specific know-how and skills, the project delivered two instruments that will be presented during this capacity building workshop.

  • The Simulation Tool for the evaluation of the financial sustainability of an EPC contract: This tool is designed for the bundling of projects and defines alternative scenarios aiming to find the financial conditions under which an Energy Service Company (ESCO) could be interested in investing into an investment program. Available language is EN.

  • MED EPC Guidelines  aim to provide step-by-step guidance for the energy retrofitting of public buildings in the MED area through the use of Energy Performance Contracts, taking into consideration the intrinsic characteristics of the region. The MEG target primarily public authorities, but also EPC facilitators, ESCOs, financing institutions and market actors. The guidelines are available in different languages (EN, FR, SI, ES, PT, IT, GR).

The two output will be further transferred thanks to the STEPPING Plus project.
