The Model Energy Performance Contract has been produced under Article 18 of the Energy Efficiency Directive and is an approach designed to assist public sector organisations retrofit their buildings by installing energy conservation measures to reduce carbon emissions and achieve substantial guaranteed annual cost savings.
The improvements are installed by Energy Service Companies that design and implement the energy conservation measures and guarantee the energy savings.
The accompanying contract guidance notes provide organisations with help on understanding the structure and specific areas of the contract.
The best practices guide has been designed to help users identify points for consideration when using the contract, and is based on experience from similar successful projects.
