Make energy contracting more attractive – “service provider network for energy-saving com-panions” in municipalities

Questionnaire

Energy saving contracting demands technical, economic and legal expertise. Often municipalities and organisations lack the time and/or experience/ know-how to carry out a contracting tender process. One solution would be a service provider network for energy saving advisors.

Would you welcome quality criteria for advisors? If yes, which criteria do you believe to be targeted and meaningful? Do you consider it useful to compile a list for advisors who meet the quality criteria?

Results


Graphic 1: How useful do you consider the role of advisors (market mediators) to be, who act as an interface between customers and energy efficiency service providers? (1- not useful; 10 very useful; n=15)

Two thirds of experts asked consider the introduction of “energy-saving companions” as an interface between customers and energy efficiency service providers to be (very) useful (see graphic 1).


Graphic 2: Do you consider it useful to create a list for advisors who reach the quality criteria? (n=15)

Two thirds of the experts asked think it is a good idea to put together a list of qualified (energy-saving) advisors (see graphic 2).

The suggestions for quality criteria for (energy-saving) advisors ranged from individual certificate-courses to proof of technical and economic competence in the areas of building, systems as well as monitoring and energy management (e.g. engineer, professional experience).
