Energy Performance Contracting (EPC)

Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) is an innovative financing mechanism designed to enhance the energy efficiency of buildings and facilities without the need for large upfront capital. Under an EPC agreement, an Energy Service Company (ESCO) conducts comprehensive energy audits to identify potential improvements. The ESCO then implements these energy-saving measures, promising to achieve a specified level of energy savings over a set period.

With EPC, the costs of the energy-efficient upgrades are typically paid for through the savings achieved on utility bills, essentially creating a self-financing model. This means that the energy savings generated from reduced consumption offset the cost of the project over time, minimizing financial risk and fostering sustainable practices.

Energy Performance Contracting is particularly valuable for public sector entities, commercial buildings, and industrial facilities seeking to reduce energy consumption, lower carbon footprints, and manage operational costs effectively. By partnering with an experienced ESCO, organizations can benefit from technical expertise, performance guarantees, and sustainable energy solutions tailored to their unique needs.
