EBENTO: Energy efficiency building enhancement through performance guarantee tools
EBENTO, which stands for “Energy efficiency building enhancement through performance guarantee tools”, aims at developing an integrated platform for all actors involved in building and renovation sector to provide one-stop-shop platform to better coordinate and manage Energy Performance Contracting (EPC), bringing together the needs from all actors involved in enhancing the building stock.
EBENTO focuses on the citizens as key players of the energy transition, helping them in their decision-making to invest in energy efficiency. Both public institutions and energy communities, supported by SMEs and Energy Service Companies, will be able to identify potential energy efficiency improvements in residential housing stock, reduce the administrative procedures and making possible public-private partnerships to attract investment and reduce upfront costs.
Thanks to this platform, new business models for optimizing the financial resources available will be validated. In this sense, the best financing and collaboration schemes to set up energy services will be explored but also it will study how to enhance current EPCs for Demand Side Mechanism services and what kind of investment options will increase the amount of energy efficiency projects in the city/region.
