The Energy Performance Contract (EPC) is a multi-year contract through which Alperia Bartucci makes the financial and technological commitment involved in an energy efficiency project and is remunerated according to the savings generated by the project.
Using this contractual method, companies may implement a more efficient system by taking advantage of the best technology available on the market, while, most importantly, not requiring them to make any outlay for initial investments.
The EPC contract stipulates:
A variable duration of time, from 5 to 15 years, depending on the technology and application
Financial costs of the project entirely borne by Alperia Bartucci
All risks related to the technology shall be borne by Alperia Bartucci
A breakdown shall be provided of the energy savings actually obtained and measured out between Alperia Bartucci and the client
Possible early technology transfer options
When an energy performance contract is drawn up, the client does not directly purchase the energy efficiency system that will be implemented at their facility, but does get to enjoy the real benefits. All work carried out during the project is entirely the responsibility of Alperia Bartucci, which, along with the client, will receive a percentage of the savings generated.
There are many advantages to this contract:
No use of the client’s own economic resources
No financial risk or danger of altering market value of securities for the client
No risk related to the energy performance of the installed technology
Net and immediate economic benefits for the client in terms of the reduction of energy consumption
Energy savings that are completely for the benefit of the client in the long term
Immediate technological innovation

ENERGY AMBASSADOR This is an innovative energy saving service obtained through the establishment of company “energy ambassadors” and the development of actions to improve organisational-behavioural energy efficiency with the support of an “energy efficiency coach” from Alperia Bartucci. There are 4 stages involved in this process:
Energy consumption analysis
The creation of working groups for the establishment of energy ambassadors that share and analyse existing operational energy management practices to define an inventory of actions to be taken in order to improve energy efficiency
The selection and implementation of the best actions for organisational-behavioural improvement
Monitoring the performance deriving from these improvement actions and sharing the savings with Alperia Bartucci
