Energy Performance Contract (EPS and ESCO) Investment Models

A. ESCO Model

ESCO (Energy Service Company) basically designs and implements energy saving projects, guarantees the energy saving performance to be provided, provides/mediates the financing necessary for the implementation of the projects, and provides and implements the energy supply when necessary, in order to ensure more efficient use of energy in businesses. It is a business model in which risk management is carried out regarding projects.

ESCO Firms determine the legal framework of the project to be created to increase energy efficiency by making Energy Performance Agreements with their customers.

In the Energy Efficiency Law No. 5627, the “energy performance contract” is defined as follows: ‘A contract based on the principle of guaranteeing the energy savings to be achieved after the implementation project and paying the expenditures with the savings that will occur as a result of the implementation.
