Saving public money: How the city of Kranj embraced energy performance contracting
The local authority of [Kranj (Slovenia)->http://www.covenantofmayors.eu/about/signatories_en.html?city_id=5788] joined the Covenant of Mayors initiative only recently in May 2013. However, as so many of its fellow signatory cities, it did so well prepared, and with a good track record of energy saving initiatives.
 
   

In 2007, the city undertook the renovation of the local olympic swimming pool, implementing this project via the Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) model. The private ESCO which was contracted for this purpose invested €780,000 in the project. Six years on, the results are promising : 50% reduction in heat consumption, 70% reduction in water consumption and 668.148 kg CO2 emission avoided on a yearly basis. Through this and other EPC projects implemented in public buildings, the city already managed to reduce its overall energy consumption by more than 22% and benefitted from 15.1% of cost savings in long-term maintenance.

In light of these encouraging results, Kranj is now planning to explore other EPC opportunities in street lighting and public buildings, in a bid to improve comfort while reducing energy and maintenance costs. More information on this case study can be found on the ManagEnergy website.
