    Outline

  • Intelligent Energy Europe Programme Intelligent Energy Europe Programme 3 CERtuS – Project Presentation08/12/2016

    1. Context and Motivation

     The sovereign debt crisis suffered by the Eurozone since 2007

     Effects of this crisis have been felt by all countries of Eurozone and was hit mainly the Southern European countries .

     In Greece, Portugal, Spain and Italy (and to a lesser extent to Ireland) demands are being made for cuts and reforms to be undertaken

     the current energy situation in Southern European Countries is characterized by:

     i/ a rapid increase in energy demand,

     ii/ a low energy efficiency,

     iii/the energy saving investments have been impeded in the public sector because the priorities now are different.

    energy policies do not appear to be sustainable and pose several risks to the prospects of socio-economic development of the Southern European Countries.

    The Context

  • Intelligent Energy Europe Programme Intelligent Energy Europe Programme

     The latest European Energy Efficiency Directive demands strict energy

    efficiency measures for the public sector. Many of the municipal buildings

    in Southern Europe require deep renovations to become nearly Zero

    Energy Buildings (nZEB)

     Compliance to this directive is difficult for the public sector because the

    required investments to renovate public buildings and achieve nearly zero

    energy consumption are capital intensive and some interventions have

    long payback times. So the interest of financing entities and ESCOs is

    small, especially when banks have limited resources.

    1. Context and Motivation

  • Intelligent Energy Europe Programme Intelligent Energy Europe Programme

     How to achieve nZEBs levels, when the needed deep renovation is costly

    and require high capital upfront???

    • It is necessary to identify financing mechanisms suitable for nZEB deep

    renovations that meet the needs of the Municipalities and of the

    financing entities and encourage the banks to adapt their strict conditions

    for financing to service energy efficiency schemes

    • CERtuS is an action aiming to help stakeholder gain confidence in such investments and initiate the growth of this energy service sector. Representative projects that could act as models for replication are needed.

    2. Objectives and general description

  • Intelligent Energy Europe Programme Intelligent Energy Europe Programme 8 CERtuS – Project Presentation08/12/2016

    • The expected economic situation in many EU countries till year 2020 will be

    such that nZEB will be difficult to attain because this will require costly deep

    renovations that entail high risks for the financing organisations. This is

    especially true in Southern European Member States where the economies are

    not expected to show a fast recovery till year 2020.

    • Eventually, municipalities will be in the difficult position to be obliged to

    renovate their buildings but they will lack the technical capability to pursue

    such projects and mostly the financial instruments. Moreover, the financing

    entities which will have limited financing abilities will consider these

    investments risky and thus of lower priority.

    • The main goal of CERtuS is to support nZEB renovations in municipalities in

    Southern Europe and help the stakeholders (i.e. municipalities, financing

    entities and third party contractors) gain confidence in such investments

    The CERtuS project in brief / Main goal

    2. Objectives and general description

  • Intelligent Energy Europe Programme Intelligent Energy Europe Programme

    • To prepare 12 representative projects of nZEB

    deep renovations in 4 Municipalities of

    Southern Europe (Italy, Greece, Spain and

    Portugal), which will act as model examples for

    the whole Southern Europe .

    • To adapt existing energy service models and

    procedures to meet the needs of Municipalities

    and nZEB under tight financial conditions

    • Energy Service models which will serve as

    examples will be prepared for the 4

    participating Municipalities.

    To prepare 12 representative projects.

    To adapt existing energy service models and procedures.

    Project Specific Objectives

    2. Objectives and general description

  • Intelligent Energy Europe Programme Intelligent Energy Europe Programme

    • Participating banks will work out these

    schemes by taking into account the risks

    implied by the cost of nZEB renovations, the

    long pay-back times and the expected

    economic environment.

    • To support replication by capacity building via

    training of employees of the Municipalities

    and regional governments of the participating

    member states.
