EU-ASE workshop at C4E Forum 2018

Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) to unlock the energy saving potential of the public building stock in Central and Eastern Europe

Thursday (14 June) - 14.00-15.00 - room Odra



EPCs are a driver for deep staged renovations of the largely inefficient public building stock (which represents about 10% of the total EU building stock). This session, organized by the European Alliance to Save Energy, will aim to:

  • First, present two concrete EPCs projects to raise awareness on EPC, illustrate their functioning and demonstrate their impacts in terms of energy and cost savings and how they can drive deep (staged) renovation in public buildings
  • Second, inform about the new accounting rules for EPCs in public administrations. The possibility to record off-balance sheet investments carried out through EPCs to improve the energy performance of public buildings is expected to boost the EPCs and renovation market in the region. In Central and Eastern Europe the use of EU funds it has been and will be essential to kick start building renovation projects and stimulate private investments. As such, this part of the session will be also dedicated to clarify how to combine EPC and EU subsidies in respect of the new accounting rules.
