OUR SERVICES & SOLUTIONS
The Energy Efficiency Network Europe is a collaborative network of energy efficiency services companies providing effective and efficient services in the field of energy efficiency and related aspects.
Our consolidated resources and harmonised approach enable network partner to offer a broader range of high quality energy services:
Mandatory energy audit compliance support
As defined by art. 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive (EED), European member states have to make energy audits mandatory for all large enterprises. These energy audits should have been carried out by 5 December 2015 for the first time and this in an independent manner by qualified and/or accredited experts.
There are many differences in the qualification criteria, the routes to compliance, audit requirements and reporting obligations between member states. While a number of member states have fully transposed art. 8 of the EED in 2014 or 2015 others have transposed the directive very recently or/and are still in a phase to implement the national regulations in practice. This means that many multinational enterprises in Europe have not yet complied in all the EU member states where they are present.
Our services include support to understand the differences between EU member states and how to comply with specific national mandatory audit legislation.
Energy efficiency audits in each EU member state
With own teams of certified lead energy auditors in many EU countries and partners in other countries and energy efficiency experts in different domains (buildings, industrial installations, transport, datacentres, …), we provide a One Stop Shop solution for multinational enterprises to comply with mandatory energy efficiency audits in most European member states and are expanding our network to provide energy audit services in all European countries.
Measurement and Verification of energy savings
When end-users, investors or banks invest in energy efficiency they want to know how much they have saved and how long their savings will last. Monitoring and Verification of energy savings is also an important component in Energy Performance Contracts and a key element in third party financing of energy efficiency investments. The determination of energy savings requires a strong expertise in accurate measurement and the use of internationally recognized protocols.
Energy Efficiency Network Europe has among its partners a large number of Certified Measurement and Verification Professionals to support the measurement and verification of energy savings according to the International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol (IPMVP).
Implementation of energy monitoring systems
Energy monitoring systems give organisations the information about when and where energy is used and are a prerequisite for the identification of energy saving opportunities, well thought decision making and project management to maximize and sustain energy cost savings. Our experts help organisations to design, to purchase and to implement the most appropriate energy monitoring system.
Implementation of energy management systems (ISO 50001)
Our partners have been supporting organisations with the full implementation of the energy management systems in line with or in compliance with the ISO 50001 standard. The ISO 50001 standard was released in June 2011 and specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system.
Support in voluntary public private programmes and policy making.
Partners in the Energy Efficiency Network Europe have been supporting public authorities and private sector organisations with the design of effective voluntary programmes for enterprises and other policies to achieve significant energy savings. Our expertise in multi-actor and multi-criteria analysis, stakeholder management and policy development is sought by international agencies and national and regional authorities.
Energy performance contracting services
According to the European Energy Efficiency Directive ‘energy performance contracting’ means a contractual arrangement between the beneficiary and the provider of an energy efficiency improvement measure, verified and monitored during the whole term of the contract, where investments (work, supply or service) in that measure are paid for in relation to a contractually agreed level of energy efficiency improvement or other agreed energy performance criterion, such as financial savings.
Our top experts in energy performance contracting services have a track record in supporting organisation to design and implement Energy Performance Contracts.
Financing of energy efficiency investments
External financing of energy efficiency investments allow building owners to accomplish energy savings projects without up-front capital costs. One of the main objective of the Energy Efficiency Network Europe is to develop new concepts and innovative business models to facilitate and improve deal flows and to support public and private building owners to find the most appropriate financing.
The Energy Efficiency Network Europe is an ally of the Investor Confidence Project and supports the ICP Europe Protocols
The Investor Confidence Project is developing a best practice framework to standardize the process for predicting and measuring energy savings, enabling the acceleration of energy efficiency investments and the emergence of a robust and thriving commercial building sector.
The Energy Efficiency Network Europe fosters the Code of Conduct for Energy Performance Contracting
The European Code of Conduct for Energy Performance Contract services launched by the EU co-funded Transparense project defines the basic values and principles that are considered fundamental to the successful preparation and implementation of Energy Performance Contracting projects. The Code of Conduct objective is to bring confidence to the EPC market in Europe and to serve as a quality guarantee.
European Code of Conduct for Energy Performance Contracting
The European associations EFIEES and eu.ESCO have become the official European co-administrators of the Code of Conduct Apply here to become a signatory.
