This report aims at providing a plan to support the development of the EPC market in the United Kingdom. The report focuses on actions needed to overcome market barriers identified in another work package of the Transparense project. Those barriers have been analysed and described in 20 country reports and one EU report on identified barriers and success factors for EPC project implementation. Section 4 presents the UK EPC market (size of the market, recent changes, legislative background, etc.). It also lists the main barriers faced by the UK EPC market as identified by previous work from the Transparense project. Finally, it describes the main stakeholders operating in the EPC market in the UK, classifying them by level of interest and level of power. Section 5, finally, presents an action plan for the development of the EPC market. Based on the findings of Section 4, it presents 9 suggested actions. For each action, a short description, the stakeholders involved and a potential timeframe are listed, along with the barrier(s) that it may help solving.
Saving energy costs without capital costs Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) – an unexploited possibility Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) has the potential to provide substantial energy savings by enabling building owners to finance the upgrading of ageing and inefficient facilities. The basic principle is that energy efficiency improvement investments are financed directly from saved energy costs. But while the EPC business model makes these investments much more feasible, the number and size of projects is still limited. The EU project Transparense, aiming at supporting the development of the EPC market, has found that lack of trust in the industry, the complexity of the EPC concept, regulatory barriers and lack of governmental support are key reasons.
