TRUST PRESENTS A NEW RISK ASSESSMENT AND BENCHMARKING TOOL TO SCALE UP INVESTMENTS IN ENERGY PERFORMANCE CONTRACTING
Publication date: 25 January 2017
A new investment assessment and benchmarking tool, based on the existing Green Rating™ methodology developed by Bureau Veritas, is now available to support the development of EPC opportunities. Due to its standardised approach towards building representation and modelisation of over 40 technical energy saving and generation measures, the Green Rating™ investment assessment and benchmarking tool will foster common understanding of EPC project risks and benefits, thus improving transparency and trust in the potential returns among all investment stakeholders.
The tool can be used by real estate and tertiary sector actors to identify and prioritise energy savings as well as building renovation opportunities and therefore more easily access third party financing provided by diverse organisations such as banks, funds and utilities. In fact these organisations can leverage the tool to identify and assess risks, and to evaluate each technical measure and equipment involved in the investment. The tools’ value lies in its standardised approach and in the fact that its application is certified by an independent third party such as Bureau Veritas.
