Training on Energy Performance Contracts in Madrid
Publication date: 13 April 2016
On Thursday 7th of April, the first training on Energy Performance Contracts within the Trust EPC South Project took place at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Madrid, called “From obligations of RD 56/2016 to achieving savings through EPC “.
In the first part of the session, there was great interest about the practical applications of the recent law RD 56/2016, which transposes the European Directive on Energy Efficiency. In fact, assistants reached a consensus on the need to go beyond the legal requirements and perform quality energy audits that can become a starting point for energy renovation projects.
The second part of the presentation was eminently practical, as success stories of different types of facilities (hotels, hospitals and universities) were analysed. All the attendees agreed on a significant point: an EPC project needs a climate of trust and collaboration between the client and the provider of EPC services.
Finally, the assessment and funding of EPC projects part highlighted the importance of the upgrade of the Green Rating tool foreseen within Trust EPC South. This tool is based on a recognized building rating methodology. Various, complementary and mutually compatible financial alternatives were also discussed in the last part of the training session.Subscribe to Trust EPC South bimonthly newsletter
