Many energy efficiency opportunities are profitable, and private investment plays a key role in energy efficiency implementation. It requires technical expertise to identify and assess energy efficiency opportunities and design actions and projects. Perceived risks and lack of access to finance is another barrier to energy efficiency investment. Energy performance contracting (EPC) is one of the tested business models for effectively addressing the financial and technical barriers to energy efficiency actions. This webinar will offer an overview about the energy performance contracting in different parts of the world, the different variations, and good practices for supporting the development of EPC market and energy service companies (ESCOs).
