Since the publication of the Eurostat guidance note on the conditions for accounting for off-balance sheet public energy performance contracts (EnPCs) in 2017, a number of Member States have developed or strengthened existing EnPC frameworks for the use of off-balance sheet contracts for the energy renovation of public buildings. These frameworks combine amendments of local regulatory barriers, development of Eurostat compliant model contracts and guidelines for users, the set-up of framework contracts for suppliers and project development assistance, specifications of targets or mandatory objectives for public authorities, and for the most advanced ones the set-up of dedicated EnPC financing instruments combining EU or national funds with private funds to support market development.
This webinar will give an overview on the development of off-government-balance sheet EnPC frameworks for the energy renovation of public buildings across different Member States and update on most recent development of EnPC financing models.
This event is organised as part of the Sustainable Energy Investment Forums contract, funded under the EU Horizon 2020 programme and managed by the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA).
