The QualitEE project, has recently published the results of a 15-country survey, which will be shaping the formation of quality criteria and assurance schemes for energy efficiency services.
The extensive market research, undertaken by the QualitEE consortium, resulted from detailed surveys of 109 providers of energy efficiency services and 79 facilitators. The survey focussed on understanding the current state of the market for the key energy efficiency services of energy performance contracting (EPC) and energy supply contracting (ESC), and in particular the financing and quality aspects.
The QualitEE project builds upon a previous initiative, Transparense, which established the European Code of Conduct for Energy Performance Contracting in 2014. These new results allow for trend analysis via comparison with previous Transparense surveys conducted in 2013 and 2015. The full results can be explored through an interactive online navigation tool on the project website.
