According to SEAI, Ireland has a €3 billion investment potential in Energy Efficiency – which will deliver a Net Present Value (NPV) – net savings – of €8 billion1. This is equivalent to nearly a quarter of primary energy demand in 2013 (nearly 35 TWh) – more than what is needed to fulfil Ireland’s 2020 carbon targets. While at the moment, Ireland is off course to meeting its carbon reduction goals by 2020, there is enormous commercial opportunity for energy efficiency providers – and the time to tap into this market potential has never been better.
The question remains – how can you tap into this potential and get projects off the ground? Which contract types work best for which types of projects (ex: according to technology type, payback time, investment size), where is the finance coming from, and how are deals actually structured? When is higher cost, off-balance sheet finance better than on balance sheet debt?
The IGBC in partnership with Joule Asset Europe is delighted to invite you to a new three-webinar series looking at contract types, sources of finance and actual finance available.
