Energy Efficiency Challenges – Most organizations (building owners) do not have the initial capital to invest in energy efficiency measures; Depending on the extension and type of service agreed, they can take the form of: As you can already see, monitoring plays a central role in an energy service contract, in addition to typical issues related to the installation of the equipment, bearing in mind that the premise of installing new devices depends on the promise of future savings. The simplest PPP is the “big model” in which the generator resells all electricity suppliers to the grid. Most of the RES was implemented using this structure, where licences were auctioned to produce a certain amount of energy in exchange for a certain pre-defined tariff per MWh. Article 18 of the Energy Efficiency Directive stipulates, among other things, that all Member States promote energy services and access, including by disseminating clear and easily accessible information on `energy services` on: (i) available energy service contracts and clauses that should be included in these contracts to guarantee energy savings and the rights of final customers; (ii) financial instruments, incentives, subsidies and loans to support energy efficiency services projects; (i) the provision of standard contracts for the award of energy production contracts that include at least the points listed in Schedule XIII; As a general rule, most disputes relate to completion, or not that a particular service, has been performed in accordance with agreed terms, or generally disputes arise over clauses relating to the calculation of payments and savings if a particular service has been provided in a certain level of quality, if something needs to be repaired or replaced, which has an obligation to repair (and pay).. And so on. Keep in mind that energy data belongs to the company and that you can use to extract consumption patterns (as when a particular service is most used), you should consider the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Keep in mind that energy supply and energy efficiency are not equivalent. A certain amount of energy and final consumption is not the same. In addition to losses with secondary conversion, the first refers to a product (or a raw material that you buy to generate a certain production), the last until the final result. Changes (from the first assessment), the energy source, the supplier, etc. The owner, in this case the research campus, does not bear the costs in advance through this agreement, pays the developer an amount similar to his traditional supply bill and may consider the financial agreement as an off-balance sheet. Due to energy savings, the developer can then apply these monthly revenues to reimbursement and maintenance costs.
