Dossier number: 785061
Programme: Horizon 2020
Budget (€): 274.276,00
Duration: 2018-2021
Description: The aim of ESI Europe is to replicate the successful Energy Savings Insurance (ESI) model in the three highest potential countries in Europe: Italy, Portugal and Spain, train key market stakeholders, and deliver an ESI Europe Toolkit alongside a longterm business model to enable the broader roll out of the ESI Europe model in other European countries. The ESI model, consists of financial and non-financial mechanisms designed to work together to improve the risk-return profile of EE investments and overcome the associated barriers. As a result of the project, GoSafe with ESI is developed, an integral solution, which guarantees the energy savings committed in the project, in such a way to minimize the risks of investments in energy efficiency and provide security, trust and credibility to companies.
