SUPPORT FOR ESCO STUDIES

Growing concerns with climate change, the limits of the planet’s resources, and citizens’ growing awareness have put pressure on the main players in the energy chain, on governments and on their regulatory bodies, to create broad-spectrum measures to improve the sustainability of our planet. This movement, which gained momentum at the beginning of the new millennium, resulted in the creation of a legal and regulatory framework that has prompted the emergence of a real “energy efficiency” market where energy service companies often take a leading role.

OPERATING MODEL

The current ESCO concept, which in Europe is based on Directive 2006/32/EC of the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union, defines an energy service company as a natural or legal person that delivers energy services or other energy efficiency improvement measures, and faces some degree of economic risk in doing so. The payment for the services delivered is based (either wholly or in part) on the energy savings generated and on compliance with the criteria agreed to with the beneficiary of the service.

This framework enables the implementation of different contractual models. The main one involves taking full responsibility for financing the project and sharing benefits with the client. Currently, this model is one of the most common means of obtaining energy efficiency services in the public sector, and has been one of the major tools that cities around the world have used to renew their supply of street lighting luminaires.

ARQUILED SERVICES

An energy performance contract is always preceded by a diagnosis of the existing lighting system in order to ascertain its state of operation and establish the energy consumption baseline that will be the benchmark used to assess future savings.

Arquiled is present throughout the lighting value chain from manufacturing to marketing, including energy efficiency consulting, projects and studies. We work in close partnership with energy efficiency companies to design the solution that best serves the investor’s return.

Shared savings model:

  • Replaces the infrastructure with a more efficient one
  • Guarantees a minimum savings amount for the customer and takes on that risk
  • Maintenance and upgrades are included (with extra shared savings)
  • Maintenance and upgrades are included (with extra shared savings)
  • Fixed percentage of energy savings
  • Fixed percentage of energy savings
  • Typical application: medium to large-scale projects
