1. What are EPCs?

Energy Performance Contracts (EPCs) are a particular type of contract used in energy retrofit projects. EPCs are different from standard contracts in that they link the payments to the contractors with savings achieved through the implementation of the EPC. The cost of investment into the energy efficiency project is paid back through the generated saving. Watch the presentation below for an overview of EPCs.

"The key advantage of Energy Performance Contracts is they allow municipalities to move from pilot scale implementation of energy efficiency to large scale, municipal wide, implementation"
