Process of preparation and execution of EPC

This is a simplified process (step by step) of the the preparation and execution of EPC.

1. The decision to modernize buildings using EPC

- focus on assessing the current technical condition of the building, the necessary extent of such modernization

2. Procurement of an independent professional advisor

- to complete the complex building assessment (professional expertise needed)

3. Preparation of materials for public procurement for ESCO

- the materials for public procurement shall include the EPC template contract
- Appropriate eligibility conditions and evaluation criteria

4. Public procurement for ESCO

- the public entity procures the achievement of energy savings, meaning it procedures an outcome (i.e. a service) and not a specific technical solution that is to achieve such outcome

5. Signature of contract, realization + operation and monitoring


For illustration, the MoF has prepared the EPC case study, which is a simple description of the use of a Template contract (the case is focused on municipality interested in renewal its building using EPC model).
