The temporary consortium consisting of Energinvest and Esset have been awarded a contract to assist the POM Oost-Vlaanderen with expert input related to know-how transfer on ESCOs and Energy Performance Contracts (EPC) for SMEs, as part of the ESCO4Oost-Vlaanderen project.
This project is part of a broader program, called ESKIMO (ESCOs voor KMO’s) initiated by Flanders Innovation and Entrepreneurship (VLAIO), that aims to study the application of ESCO concepts and EPC contracts for Small and Medium sized Enterprises. The project will also include setting up pilot projects for EPC at SME premises.
The awarded contract includes the development of a number of master classes for project participants and stakeholders, a comprehensive strategic study on ESCO projects for SMEs, two expert workshops and the development of a comprehensive toolkit for initiating and managing SME projects.
Lieven Vanstraelen, Senior Partner at Energinvest : « The award of this contract, to Energinvest and our partner ESSET, confirms our pioneering role in the Flemish ESCO sector. Throughout this project, SMEs will be able to benefit from our proven track record and experience in the public sector. »
