EPC: how ESCOs can demonstrate real savings to their customers.

Energy performance contracting (EPC) is a mechanism to organise the energy efficiency financing. A profitable contract but with a very delicate point: the remuneration of the ESCO (Energy Service COmpany) depends on the achievement of the guaranteed savings. It is therefore key for the ESCO to be able to demonstrate the savings achieved throughout the project. In this article we talk about how an Esco can prove the savings achieved thanks to its intervention and the importance of using a software compliant with IPMVP® guidelines (International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol).

CO2 and energy efficiency : what is the scenario?

CO2= P (people) x S (services per person) x E (energy per service) x C (CO2 per unit energy). This equation is probably not new to you. But what is really behind it?

Let’s have a look at the first two data of the equation, People and Services : the current world population of 7.6 billion is expected to reach 8.6 billion in 2030, 9.8 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion in 2100, according to a new United Nations report. If we sum the higher life expectancy, the improved quality of life in emerging countries such as India, China, Brazil, the increase in energy demand is ineluctable. In other words, with People and Services increasing, we can expect CO2 emissions to follow the curb (source UN). Read more
