To start a new company or a new business is at the same time challengingand exciting. The ChangeBest project has supported the development of newenergy efficiency services (EES) by ESCOs, building technology providers,energy companies and other companies.
In ChangeBest 38 companies across Europe have been supported. In total48 new EES have been developed and field tested. This support included astrategic guideline, advice by email, telephone and face-to-face meetings aswell as information exchange between EES providers at national andEuropean workshops.
Most of the new EES were successful and serve as good practice exampleswhile others EES were not successful. In both cases there were importantlesson learned for EES providers.
ChangeBest gives a detailed assessment of the EES markets withconclusions and recommendations for the policy strategy to support EESdevelopment, both in the European Union (EU) and in the Member States.
