Change Best

The ChangeBest project with its 20 project partners and at least 45 partners from practice aims at supporting the implementation of the EU Energy Service Directive, as well as at contributing to a further development of the energy efficiency service market.

A main objective of the Energy Service Directive is to stimulate the market for energy services. In order to achieve this objective, the Directive gives a special role to energy distributors and retail energy sales companies.
At this point, the ChangeBest project comes into play. Its main targets are to
  • assist energy companies and energy service companies in entering the B2B and B2C market for energy efficiency services;
  • contribute to the development of the energy efficiency service market as part of the implementation of the Energy Service Directive; and
  • demonstrate good practice in implementing the Energy Service Directive.
  • To achieve these targets, following main actions will be carried out:
  • The energy efficiency service market and the respective economic and policy framework will be empirically analysed.
  • A large bundle of promising energy efficiency service business cases and strategies will be implemented in a “field test”.
Expected and/or achieved results
  • At least 35 promising Energy Efficiency Service business cases and strategies will be implemented in a ‘field test’ by partners from practice.
  • At least 5 new energy (efficiency) services will be developed in co-operation with partners from practice (B2B and B2C), that ease companies to enter into the Energy Efficiency Service market or to expand their Energy Efficiency Service business.
  • At least 20 Energy Efficiency Service contracts will be sold by the partners from practice to the B2B market and 150 contracts will be sold to the B2C market.
  • A platform for collecting results on the Energy Efficiency Service market development in the course of the implementation of the Energy Service Directive and beyond will be established.
