EPC Reducing 20% of SME’s Overall Consumption in Italy

SEA will present a significant case study based on a real EPC project carried on for Eurocarbo S.p.A., a worldwide leader sintered material company.

According to the contract, SEA is managing various energy efficiency measures in four different company sectors.

The entire cycle of an Energy Performance Contract has been respected. SEA finances the whole project and is responsible for the design, installation and O&M. Eurocarbo will get a 20% reduction of the overall consumption; thanks to the savings, the client will have the chance to use its capitals to invest in activities directly related to its core business.

Main economic facts:

  • Investment 330.000 €

  • O&M 27.400 €/year

  • Annual savings 105.000 €/year

80 Multifamily Residential Buildings Renovation Through Energy Performance Contracting

  • The SUNShINE mechanism: Developping a forfaiting fund, which will purchase receivables from future energy savings from the ESCOs to release their balance sheets and allow them to carry out more energy performance contracts. A stakeholder platform will be developed side by side to standardize the process and reduce transaction costs.

  • The expected investment is €30 million. This combination of transparent standardized financing mechanism will attract private sector financing.

  • Results and feedback from the owners and residents
