Energy performance contracting is becoming an increasingly recognised solution to the challenges faced by public and private sector organisations in reducing their energy costs and achieving carbon targets. Moreover, these mechanisms introduce the necessary expertise, resource and capital funding by external means, while guaranteeing energy savings across a given period of time.

With the establishment of the RE:FIT framework in 2010, over 440 public sector buildings across 31 of the 33 London Boroughs, 25 NHS Organisations and 141 other organisations have been retrofitted under numerous Energy Performance Contracts.

However, these tools involve inherent mismatched incentives from the clients, to the contractors as well as incumbent facilities managers. The contracts are extremely complex for relatively low capital values and carry high risk for the contract providers.

Our panel will discuss the merits and opportunities of Energy Performance Contracts against the challenges they pose and their potential use as mechanisms for organisations to mitigate their own risk.
