Energy Services (CT5)

The Energy Efficiency Directive widens the provisions to stimulate the development of the energy services market. The Directive asks Member States to remove regulatory and non-regulatory barriers (art. 18 and 19) and to promote and support the energy services market (art. 18). It also strengthens the necessary prerequisite of an energy service, the energy audit and underlines the importance of energy management systems (art. 8).

This theme addresses the interactions between the government, energy agencies, energy companies (e.g. energy distributors, distribution system operators, retail energy sale companies), energy services providers (e.g. energy service companies), local authorities and customers (including not SMEs enterprises, SMEs, down to households) in order to stimulate the growth of markets of energy services, energy audits and energy management systems in the Member States.

The discussion includes topics such as energy audits, model contracts, supporting frameworks and policies for energy services offered to big (industries and large buildings) and small (households and small and medium enterprises) customers. Other crucial topics of interest are energy management systems with particular attention to their implementation in smaller organizations.
