EESI 2020 at OPEN DAYS – 11th European Week of Regions and Cities in Brussels
As part of the OPEN DAYS at the 11th European Week of Regions and Cities in Brussels, the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation (EACI) of the European Commission organized a workshop on Energy Performance Contracting (EPC).
EPC is a perfect example of how the private sector can be involved in the field of energy saving in public buildings. Timothée Noël of EACI said that the obligations as set out in the Energy Efficiency Directive would encourage local and regional authorities, to increasingly implement EPC. Sabine Piller of the Berlin Energy Agency (BEA), EESI 2020 project coordinator, introduced to BEA´s extensive experience with EPC in the public sector . “Without EPC, Berlin would never have retrofitted so many buildings.”
