Original_vilnius_panorama_2

Target audience

Stakeholders in a Lithuanian EPC market: National and local authorities; potential public and private clients; potential ESCO providers, suppliers and facilitators; financing institutions; research institutes.

Overview:

In Lithuania, Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) has not received any practical implementation yet due to a range of major barriers, making many potential clients and providers reluctant to enter into such arrangements. However, at the same time various forms of public private partnerships have been developed in Lithuania's energy sector such as e.g. middle-term contracts of management of buildings.

In this light the event will aim at support and discuss the uptake of the EPC concept in Lithuania by:

‣ Presenting good international practice of EPC in the public and residential sectors

‣ Exchange experience, opinions and ideas on

      • ∙ the needs for EPC in Lithuania
      • ∙ how to stimulate the EPC market in Lithuania
      • ∙ how to implement and support the new EU project “Transparense” , including implementation of a Lithuanian EPC pilot project (Intelligent Energy Europe)

‣ Define and discuss further steps ahead to improve framework conditions for EPC development in Lithuania and seen in light of the activities in the Transparense project.

The event is organized in a joint effort between the Lithuanian Ministry of Environment, EU ManagEnergy Initiative and the EU Transparense project (Lithuanian Energy Institute).
