Abstract

This report reviews and analyses the development and the current status of the ESCO industries in Europe. It builds on and summarises the first results of an on-going in-depth survey of ESCO businesses in Europe (EU-25, NACs and selected neighbouring countries) and analyses a selection of ESCO projects, both ongoing and completed. Based on the review and the analysis, areas of activity are identified and indication is given as to what action is likely to foster the further developments of ESCOs in Europe. The strategic actions indicated build on successful experience in Europe or in individual Member States and are proposed with an eye to existing and planned legislative measures, such as the proposed Energy Service Directive and the implementations of the Kyoto flexible mechanisms.
