On the 26th of February, EFIEES answered to the Commission’s public consultation on unlocking private financing for energy efficiency projects. Among others, Energy Performance Contracts (EnPCs) are a key tool to initiate and manage projects, even though it is not a financing instrument as such. It plays the crucial role of an aggregator of tasks, investments and financing, by ensuring guaranteed energy performance, securing investments and cash flows/energy savings. This is why the Commission’s recommendations to Member States to unlock energy efficiency financing must consider the development of EnPCs as a priority.

EFIEES recommends to:

Develop a conducive environment for projects

Use public support as a lever to private financing

Embrace the role of energy management solutions

Embrace the role of ESCOs

Develop well balanced enabling national frameworks
