Totally 15 buildings have been renovated according to the ESCO model. It means all the buildings have been renovated at our own expense, but flat owners don’t contribute in any form. We take all the technical and financial risk of the renovation whilst guaranteeing a certain level of comfort to the building residents, as well as responsibility for energy efficiency measures in renovated buildings for a 20-year period. All renovation costs are financed by our company based on the value of future energy savings. As a result of renovations our company uses achieved final energy savings for earning the investments back as well as ensuring profits for our work and commercial risks. The ESCO concept originates from the 1980’s. It started in the United Stated after the oil-crisis of the 70’s and is currently mainly applied in industry and manufacturing sectors. The idea is based on cooperation between a large energy consumer and an innovative engineering company in order to reduce the amount of energy or raw materials used in a production process, thus saving costs.
Definition: ESCO is an investment company that invests in energy saving measures, implements these measures and earns the investments back from the achieved final energy savings over a longer period of time (typically 20 years).
