1 Looking into different approaches for ESCO Dr. Daniel Hesse Berliner Energieagentur GmbH Bucharest, 8 May 2015

2 BEA Facts and Figures Established in 1992 as Public-Private Partnership Shareholders Federal State of Berlin Vattenfall Europe GASAG KfW Banking Group Disposes of 2.5 million of capital stock Company divisions Contracting Consulting International Know-how Transfer Based in Französische Straße Berlin Phone: (030) Internet: Annual Turn-Over 12.9 million 1.0 million Company earnings (EBIT) Know-how 58 members of staff

3 3 Different approaches for ESCO Agenda Energy Services in general Energy Supply Contracting (ESC) Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) Facilitators

4 4 Different approaches for ESCO Agenda Energy Services in general Energy Supply Contracting (ESC) Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) Facilitators

5 Benefits of energy efficient technologies or systems (for energy consumers) Reduction of operational cost Improved profits Tap potentials to (co-)finance investments Reduced dependency on volatile or rising energy prices Improved system performance, e.g., Reduced number of failures/down times Reduced exposure to black-outs Improved comfort/performance levels Increased asset value Reduced environmental foot-print 5

6 Motivation for energy services Barriers to implementation of energy efficiency measures: Lack of capacities Lack of information Lack of motivation (energy not core business) High upfront investment costs Solution: Energy Services 6

7 Energy Services A simple definition Energy Services Application of energy efficiency know-how by third party + Performance related remuneration and/or risk transfer Energy Service Company (ESCO) = Provider of Energy Services 7

8 8 Different approaches for ESCO Agenda Energy Services in general Energy Supply Contracting (ESC) Main principle Project examples Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) Facilitators

9 Typical energy supply situation without Energy Services 9

10 Energy Supply Contracting (ESC) General Project Scheme 10

11 11 Different approaches for ESCO Agenda Energy Services in general Energy Supply Contracting (ESC) Main principles Project examples Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) Facilitators

12 ESC Best Practice Combined Heat and Power City Carré / Commerzbank, Commercial Complex, Berlin Heated floor space approx. 36,000 m² Shopping mall, offices and hotel CHP unit in existing heating system Start of supply: 2006 Technical data: CHP unit with 50 kw el and 97 kw th Environmental effects: Amount of energy savings 548 MWh/a Reduction of CO 2 emissions: 200 t/a 12

13 13 Different approaches for ESCO ESC Best Practice CHP + PV + Solar Thermal Energy Residential complex Meller Bogen Largest solar thermal plant in combination with boiler Object: multi-family house (563 units) Collector surface: 600 m2 Type of use: room heating and hot water heating Solar yield: 205,000 kwh/a

14 14 Different approaches for ESCO Agenda Energy Services in general Energy Supply Contracting (ESC) Energy Performance Contacting (EPC) Main principles Project examples Facilitators

15 Typical energy supply situation without Energy Services 15

16 Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) General Project Scheme 16

17 Guaranteed savings Different approaches for ESCO Energy Saving Guarantee Contract: Remuneration to the ESCO /year Energy costs before implementation of EE measures Energy costs after implementation of EE measures Performance-based remuneration to the ESCO (share of guaranteed savings) Budget relief to the client (share of guaranteed savings) Real reduction in energy costs (to the full benefit of the client after end of contract) Baseline year Implementation of measures End of contract 17

18 General financing options for energy services Financing through client Renumeration of services and investment Financing through ESCO (credit) Services Services & Investment & Financing through ESCO (forfaiting) Sale of receivables Cash Advance Renumeration of ESCO investment Services & Investment 18

19 Agenda Energy Services in general Energy Supply Contracting (ESC) Energy Performance Contacting (EPC) Main principles Project examples Facilitators 19

20 Best Practice Wenckebach Hospital Berlin Building: public-owned hospital with 438 beds Baseline: 808,359 /a Guaranteed savings: 39.6 % = 320,000 /a Invest: 2.44 m CO 2 reduction : 1,789 t/a Duration of contract: 12 years (start in 2011) Measures: modernisation of heat distribution, cooling and ventilation system, installation of CHP unit, webbased energy management system, user trainings Special feature: insulation of top storey ceilings 20

21 EPC model variations EPC light in Pankow, Berlin Goal: To reduce energy consumption by mid-2012 in schools and administration buildings through light measures Number of buildings: 15 Baseline: /a Guaranteed savings: 10.2 % ( /y) ESCO payment: /y CO 2 -reduction: t/a Duration of contract: 2 years Elementary School, Kollwitzplatz in Pankow Measures: Energy management, system optimization and continuous monitoring 21

22 Agenda Energy Services in general Energy Supply Contracting (ESC) Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) Facilitators 22

23 Energy services Involved stakeholders Energy supplier e.g., Energy utility Customer e.g., Public institution Company Facilitator e.g., Energy agency Consultant Financing institution e.g., Bank Public fund Private investor ESCO e.g., Energy utility Engineering company Energy agency Institutions setting legal framework e.g., Parliament Energy authority 23 Subcontractors, suppliers etc. e.g. Builders Suppliers Insurances

24 EPC facilitators support client in an EPC project by Support in building/facility identification and pooling Baseline elaboration Tender preparation (incl. Contract) and evaluation Management of the procurement process Support in the annual evaluation of savings and assessment of changes in use Moderation between client and ESCO 24

25 EU funded project: EESI 2020 Regional support to 9 large cities and metropolitan regions to establish EPC Integration of EPC in long-lasting energy and climate plans EPC task forces > 20 pilot projects Focus on the demand side EPC Best practice database Marketing material Focus on EPC project facilitation Facilitator guidelines (in national language) ca. 30 Training events/workshops Promotion of EPC, e.g. through Energy Service Award Website with useful documents:

26 EBRD Project: Market development of EPC in Romania Romania: GEF Opening the Market for Private ESCOs Project Implementation Support Objective: Supporting market development of energy performance contracting (EPC) for public buildings and street lighting in Romania Target groups: Municipalities (as potential EPC clients), energy service companies, political and economic decision-makers Consortium: BEA (Team leader); partners from Romania: Tractebel Engineering (technical expert), TUD consulting (financial expert), Tuca Zbarcea (legal expert) Contents: Implementation of pilot projects, development of model contracts and tender documents, capacity building, adaptation of regulatory framework Period: 5/2013 5/2016
