  • - pre-defined price from service providers for necessary thermal energy for heating produced from biomass (10 years period) - 41% lower price for thermal energy than the average price of thermal energy from the fuel oil, which was paid in period 2011 - 2014

  • Most of the schools in Karlovac County are using fuel oil for heating which causes high heating costs. In order to achieve energy savings, Karlovac county in cooperation with REGEA successfully implemented a Energy Performance Contracting model. The term Energy Performance Contracting (or EPC) is a business model in which a site owner outsources energy services to a third party for a defined period. This means that energy is supplied and/or comprehensive energy saving measures are implemented by an energy contractor, rather than by the owner. The energy contractor is a specialist service company that takes on all of the tasks (e.g. planning, construction, financing and operational management of a heating plant) as well as the risks associated with the energy service.
