The Pilot Project will ensure optimal use of an E5P Investment Grant at local level by providing support and capacity development to the public actors:
- Technical preparation of projects: to assist public building owners (City and national level) to identify buildings for EnPC energy efficiency measures; analyse the commercially feasible energy saving potential; identify necessary energy efficiency investments and assess anticipated energy savings.
- Preparation of Contract and Tender documents: drafting of model EnPC contract and templates for public tendering; drafting of detailed guidelines for tender procedure.
- On-going Implementation Support: supporting the City in the implementation and monitoring of the EnPC energy efficiency projects.
- Regulatory Development through Policy Dialogue: support the city and engage with the central government in order to recommend appropriate regulations to facilitate broader and more flexible use of EnPC in the public sector in Ukraine.
- CO2 savings
The established Policy Dialogue intends to create an enabling legislative framework that makes the use of ESCOs/EnPC fully flexible and admissible in a more clear way. The policy dialogue refers primarily to clarifications via secondary legislation and ideally through a formally approved (secondary legislation) manual for the procurement and implementation of EnPC projects. Implementing the following recommendations (subject to a detailed legal due diligence) would allow a flexible use of EnPC and facilitate ESCO/EnPC market development in Ukraine.
