Delivering services to buildings based on an Active building Energy Performance Contracting (AEPC) model provides an interesting new opportunity to Energy Service Companies (ESCOs and Grid operators) aiming to generate new business or improve existing ones, while lowering GHG emissions.

In fact, ESCOs can play an important role as aggregators of implicit Demand Response in buildings, as electrification (in combination with active control) based on demand response to variable pricing seems to be the key to a successful business case.

Having in mind the flexibility potential in buildings – that can be valorized even more when dynamic prices become available -, AmBIENCe has released a new deliverable that provides information on the actors, roles and business models related to extended EPC business models and the use of flexibility at the demand-side from buildings.
