International Energy Agency Launches Online Resource on Energy Service Companies around the World
The International Energy Agency (IEA) has launched a new web resource dedicated entirely to energy service companies (ESCOs). The IEA’s new ESCO resource, which builds on the comprehensive Global Exchange for Energy Efficiency, features in-depth pages for 30 countries, interactive charts, a resource browser and a wealth of information on the global ESCO market.
The ESCO pages are based in part on an in-depth survey of more than 25 national ESCO associations conducted by the IEA in 2018. The survey covered ESCO financing models, energy performance contracting, and related policy measures. Information is also available on the characteristics of various ESCO markets across the globe. The ESCO pages also highlight key changes or developments in specific markets.
