The European Commission, in partnership with the UN Environment Finance Initiative, organised a webinar on the new Practitioner's Guide on Energy Performance Contracts on 04 July 2018, from 11.00 to 13.00 Central European Time.
Eurostat, the Statistical Office of the European Commission, and the European Investment Bank (EIB) launched a new Practitioner's Guide on the Statistical Treatment of Energy Performance Contracts on the 8th of May. The Guide explains in detail how these contracts work and gives a clear overview of the potential impact on government finances. This will assist public authorities in taking better-informed decisions when preparing and procuring EPCs.
Speakers included Adrien Bullier from EASME who moderated the webinar and presented the EU policy in support to energy efficiency investments, Robert Pernetta and Julia Kennedy from the European Investment Bank as well as Erika Honnay, director of the Renowatt project, who offered an overview of the local authorities perspective.
This webinar was organised by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) as part of the Sustainable Energy Investment Forums initiative, funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union.
