Webinar on Energy Performance Contracting to take place on 13 November
Following the adoption of the Energy Efficiency Directive early October, the Covenant of Mayors Office is organizing a series of webinars on Energy Performance Contracting (EPC).

The first webinar will be on 13 November (from 3.00pm), with an introduction by Roman Doubrava from Directorate-General Energy who will present the recently launched EPC campaign.

The signatory municipality of Oskarshamn in Sweden will speak about its cooperation with Schneider Electric in the refurbishment of public buildings such as the city hall, schools and child care centres. The municipality will highlight how EPC works in practice and share the main challenges and opportunities of such collaboration. Schneider Electric will explain the process of EPC, stressing the cost-benefits for municipalities and the contractual process binding both parties.

Energy Performance Contracting can be a powerful tool for Covenant of Mayors Signatories willing to ensure that their public buildings do not waste energy and are equipped with the latest technology. With no need for upfront capital, the infrastructure refurbishment is financed by the energy services company (ESCO) responsible for the project. The investment is then repaid by the anticipated energy savings, reducing the financial risks for the municipality.

A link to join the webinar will be provided on the newsfeed/homepage of the Covenant of Mayors Extranet/My Covenant section, which Covenant Signatories, Coordinators and Supporters can access with their profile login information. An instruction document on how to take part in the webinar will also be available in this location. The webinar will be held in English, and participation is limited to an estimated 100 people.
