“4 stages” towards guaranteed savings
eu.ESCO at European Energy Service Day in Brussels
Brussels, 16 September, 2010. – eu.ESCO, the European Association of Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) continues actively working for the development of effective, high-quality energy services in Europe. On 13th September in Brussels the association took part and contributed at the second edition of the European Energy Service Day.
The European Association of Energy Service Companies (eu.ESCO), completely involved in the initiative, was an active part in the event: Gunnar Liehr (Siemens) from eu.ESCO contributed with an outlook on the potential and future applications of Energy Services. He highlighted eu.ESCO’s know-how on the measurement of energy saving potentials and presented the “4 stages” process towards guaranteed savings.
Winner of Energy Service Media Award
eu.ESCO also sponsored, with a prize money of 3,000 Euros, the European Energy Service Media Award (EESMA), new category of the established European Energy Service Award that honors journalistic contributions on the subject of energy services (“Making energy services illustrative”). This year’s winner was Joachim Mahrholdt of the environmental editorial staff at ZDF – the second channel of German television broadcasting.
The European Energy Service Day - following the motto “Think European – Act Regional” – took place in Brussels on 13th-14th September 2010. The event, a European Energy Service Initiative (EESI), was organized by the Berliner Energieagentur in cooperation with FEDERANE (European Federation of Regional Energy and Environment Agencies). It was a combination of a high-level conference on energy services, the bestowal of the European Energy Service Award on outstanding organisations and projects, and a political debate on the importance of sustainable energy utilization in Europe, accompanied by the review of regional actions.
In order to meet to the European energy efficiency guidelines, EPBD, as well as customers’ requirements for theenergy efficiency of their buildings, leading international companies created the European Building Automationand Controls Association (eu.bac). The goal of the association is the standardisation, testing and certifying ofproducts, which are key to the energy-efficient control of building services installations.
eu-esco is the European Association of Energy Services Companies. It was founded by eu.bac – the EuropeanBuilding Automation and Controls Association – that has developed building standard procedures to determinethe EPC potentials. eu-esco accelerates and individualizes the communication on EPC benefits to better assistthe EU member states in achieving their energy efficiency targets. With particular emphasis on the modernizationof building automation in existing public buildings eu-esco contributes to the practical implementation of theEuropean Directives on energy performance in buildings, in particular the Energy Performance of BuildingsDirective (EPBD) and the End-user Energy Efficiency & Energy Services Directive (EEES).
