Energy Savings with Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) Call

The Energy Savings with EPC Call supports projects aimed at reducing the energy performance of the company. The specificity of this call is the method of financing the savings, where it involves securing financing in the form of instalments from the resulting, contractually declared savings. The project and individual austerity measures are thus financed by future savings, which will be used to repay investment costs. Another condition is the EPC contract, which the applicant concludes with the so-called ESCO (Energy Service Company), which ensures the implementation of energy-saving measures. At the same time, energy savings are financially expressed and therefore, in the event of failure to achieve them, the ESCO will financially compensate these unattained savings to the applicant.

Activities such as the reconstruction and modernisation of self-consumption energy generation facilities, electricity, gas and heat distribution systems with the aim of increasing efficiency, modernising lighting systems for buildings and industrial sites, reducing the energy performance of production and technological processes, using waste energy in production processes or installing renewable energy sources or electricity storage are supported.
