What is an Energy Performance Contract (EnPC)?
An Energy Savings Company guarantees the financial savings made by a particular energy efficiency program through an EnPC, and loans the capital to invest in technology. The savings in energy costs are used to pay back the capital investment of the project over a five- to twenty-year period. In all cases, the saving is guaranteed to exceed the cost of the technology.
How the Financing Works
An Energy Performance Contract transfers risk away from traditional financing routes, by guaranteeing baseline energy savings and enabling the Energy Savings Company to earn their fee from a proportion of additional savings delivered, if appropriate.
Dalen has been working under the Green Deal initiative to secure agreements allowing existing utility supply arrangements to be used as the mechanism to pay back energy efficiency lending.
