The tool will be based on a set of parameters such as EPC data, number of certified installers, governmental schemes running, etc. By providing a rating for deep renovation opportunities , whether for private establishments or for public buildings :
"The Energy Performance Contract between ESCO and building owner usually contains guarantees for energy (cost) savings and regulates allocation of financial and technical risks for implementation and operation during the entire project duration of typically 5 to 5 years. Since there are various European model contracts and different approaches for EPC the EESI project defines not ONE European model contract but the main distinguishing features of Energy Performance Contracts and makes different proven model documents available.
"Energy data is crucial for identifying trends in the economic priority sectors to target energy policies and to ensure energy efficiency improvements and increased renewable energy deployment. These measures can then be built in to sustainable energy policies and plans, and their national and local implementation progress can be monitored periodically.

Urban energy planning
The MEU project has as objective to develop and test a web tool that precisely meets the needs of planners of urban energy systems. This project helped put together the academic partners, as well as four Swiss cities.
Implemented by: Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur
LEAP (Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning System)- software tool for energy policy analysis and climate change mitigation assessment. LEAP is an integrated, scenario-based modeling tool that can be used to track energy consumption, production and resource extraction in all sectors of an economy.
