ESCo

An ESCo is therefore a company capable of providing all the technical, commercial and financial services necessary to carry out an energy efficiency intervention, assuming the costs of the investment and the risk of no savings, against the stipulation of a contract in which their profits are established. It therefore does not limit itself to simply providing the financial resources with which the entrepreneur will carry out the investment independently because they must in fact possess, on their own or through related groups, the adequate technical skills and the financial resources necessary to achieve what has been commissioned to them, also offering flexibility based on the needs of whoever who requested the related services.

The ESCo meet the requirements outlined in the reference standard UNI CEI 11352-2014 .
