Abstract

All available studies show that investment in energy efficiency within the European Community is not occurring at the optimum rate, because of numerous barriers in the market place. One such barrier is lack of finance, or as common, unwillingness to spend available finance on energy efficiency objectives, investments which have very attractive rates of return. This barrier, and others such as lack of technical knowledge or lack of credibility for energy saving technologies, can be overcome by the use of third party financing. This approach can assist in ensuring that the Community's ambitious energy efficiency target, as proposed by the European Commission (an improvement of 25% in energy efficiency by 1995) is met.
