Energy Performance Contract e Incentives

FUND YOUR INVESTMENT

ENTRUST US WITH THE FUNDING OF YOUR INVESTMENT!

Energika, in fact, is capable of funding the investment required to realize the energy efficiency project your company needs. The cost of funding will then be repaid by the project’s benefits, bearing in mind the savings made on your energy bills and the possibility of being awarded White Certificates.

The energy performance contract is a contractual agreement whereby an ESCO undertakes to provide a series of services and perform a series of operations aimed at upgrading and improving the efficiency of an energy system owned by another person (the beneficiary), whereby the payments for the investment made in the aforesaid measure, are made on the basis of the degree of improvement in energy efficiency established by contract.

The uniqueness of this contractual mechanism consists in the fact that the ESCO is remunerated on the basis of the actual results achieved by the customer through the utilization and modernization of existing technology, plants and structures.

In regard to the distribution of risks, to the coverage of the funding, and to the ESCO’s remuneration, energy performance measures may give rise to different types of energy performance contract.

Energika, in its capacity as an ESCO, offers to evaluate contracts of this kind that aid the implementation of improved efficiency measures by its customers, in a manner to be established on the basis of the analysed projects and of the requirements of the companies or public administrations in question.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY CERTIFICATES

Energy savings incentives include “Energy Efficiency Certificates” (Titoli di Efficienza Energetica – TEE), otherwise known as White Certificates, which are issued to distributors and ESCOs for energy savings obtained through the adoption of efficient systems and technology.

These White Certificates are tradable on the market, and they constitute an important instrument with which to reduce the time it takes to recover investments made to improve energy efficiency.

Energika is capable of evaluating and proposing actions eligible for incentives in favour of companies’ energy savings. This mechanism can help companies at each stage of the process, as follows:

  • Evaluation of the regulatory framework and the market situation within which the action is to be performed;
  • Analysis of obtainable White Certificates, of the cost-benefit ratio, and of the method to be used in requesting provision (Standard Forms, Detailed Forms or Final Projects);
  • Appraisal and submission of the paperwork to the GSE;
  • Realization of the project and of the required monitoring system;
  • Submission of applications for the assessment and certification of energy savings;
  • Sale of recognized White Certificates.

Through involvement in this virtuous mechanism, companies directly benefit in terms of the reduction in their energy spending, and of the financial incentives they are given for an average period of 5 years from realization of the project, and they also contribute towards the achievement of national Energy Efficiency targets.

During the course of 2014 and 2015, on the occasion of the F.I.R.E. Prize “White Certificates for an energy efficient industry”, Energika won the prize for the best project submitted by an ESCO representing an exemplary case of how a qualified external company can assist an industrial firm in identifying effective solutions designed to take advantage of locally-sourced energy.
