Press release

Berlin 24.01.2017

Europe’s cities grow. The efficient use of heat and power is an important prerequisite, if cities want to develop in a sustainable way in the future. In order to honouring European frontrunners in the field of energy efficiency, Berliner Energieagentur (BEA) bestows the „European Energy Service Award“ (EESA) for the tenth time within the EU-project “guarantEE”.

Many public and private buildings still bear high potentials for energy cost savings. Specialized energy service companies can help reducing energy costs, e.g. by installing or operating efficient building technology on their own financial risk. Nevertheless, more than 60 percent of the building experts in the European Union have no personal experience with energy services like Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) and are rather cautious and partly sceptical about such energy service models. This are the results of a market study conducted within the European project guarantEE that is coordinated by the Berliner Energieagentur (BEA).

Berlin 26.09.2016

Energy-wasting lighting, oversized heating systems, ventilation in permanent operation – in many of the roughly five million apartment and non-residential buildings in Germany energy is wasted day by day. This is also true for other European countries. The EU-project guarantEE - coordinated by the Berlin Energy Agency (BEA) - aims to make a difference. Within guarantEE, experienced partners from 14 countries will develop innovative solutions that will enhance business and financing models for energy saving contracting (ESCO).
