Project Detail

"Moving to a greener economy creates the need for new skills and competencies profiles, requiring the development of strong alliances for the adjustment of current training and qualification frameworks. On the basis of a Quadruple Helix approach, this project aims to define and develop a training and accreditation scheme on green skills. This scheme will address, in an articulated way, professional, market and customer barriers that stand in the way for the consolidation of Energy Efficiency (EE), Renewable Energy Systems (RES) and nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB). It will be based on on-site and on-line training, transversally incorporating BIM and LEAN methodology. Specifically, the project will: *Improve skills of workers from the construction industry on EE, RES and nZEB, taking into account the entire value chain of the building. *Promote cooperation and understanding between the different trades and professional groups by incorporating to the training the quality paradigm known as LEAN Construction as well as BIM methodology. *Develop a new standard of sectoral competencies on EE, RES and nZEB following the methodology EQF (learning outcome approach) as well as ECVET and quality criteria EQUAVET. *Develop a new ""Energy Audit"" qualification. *Foster the specialization of SMEs in sustainable construction and its leadership in the market, allowing knowledge to be translated into innovative services to gain market share. *Certify skills by creating the accreditation ""Green tag"" to promote interaction and collaboration between stakeholders throughout mutual recognition. *Encourage innovation and improvement of work processes in regard to customer relations, workers and SMEs (guidance, needs detection and decision making on health, comfort and EE).

Project Value 2 Million
Project Detail

The Energy Efficiency Directive, in its art.8, requires Member States to develop programmes encouraging SMEs to undergo energy audits and implement the recommended energy-saving measures. However uptake of energy audits and implementation of energy conservation measures (ECM) among SMEs has been low to date. The barriers to uptake cited in the literature include lack of in-house expertise; lack of resource (time & money); perception that energy auditing is expensive; inability to act due to lack of control of services in the building they use; lack of willingness from landlords to act; inability to access finance due to the small nature of most projects. The SPEEDIER project will address these barriers by providing a self-financing outsourced energy management service to SMEs. By outsourcing the role of energy manager to SPEEDIER Experts, SMEs can access the expertise needed at the required time, leading to greater uptake of energy audits and implementation of energy efficiency measures. SPEEDIER will target groups of SMEs in 4 EU pilot regions: in Spain we will test a location based approach, engage with SMEs based at a single business park to demonstrate that advantages of clustering SMEs give them better access to the economies of large scale projects; in Ireland and Romania SMEs in the manufacturing and hospitality sectors respectively will be approached to test a sector based approach to service delivery; in Italy, a more general approach of accessing SMEs from any sector via ESCOs will be tested. The project is to be self-financing to remove any financial barriers to energy audit uptake and implementation of ECMs. The mechanism for making this work in practice follows an Energy Performance Contract model where the consultant delivering the support retains a share of the savings as payment for the duration of the contract. This ensures that the Service is also suitable for large enterprises. The project consists of 6 RTDs, 3 SMEs, 1 NGO from 5 Member States

Kosovo Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Additional Financing
Company Name Kosovo Energy Efficiency Agency
Funded By 106
Country Kosovo , Eastern Europe
Project Value 11 Million
Project Detail

Project Description 11. With the creation of the KEEF, the EC has agreed to contribute a €10 million grant from the EUInstrument for Pre-Accession (IPA) to be channeled through the World Bank as additional financing (AF via a recipient-executed trust fund - RETF) to the parent Project. No additional IDA funds are being proposed at this time. In parallel, the World Bank proposes to restructure the parent Project to include the KEEF as an implementing partner under Component 1B of the Project (Pilot Energy Efficiency Investment Program for Municipalities, US$5.6 million), extend the Closing Date and update the Project indicators. 12. Below is a summary of each component, its current status and the proposed changes. Component 1: Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Investments in Public Buildings 13. Description. This component includes the renovation of both central-owned government buildings (US$22 million) and municipal government buildings (US$4.5 million IDA, US$1.5 million Government counterpart funding) with the EE and RE measures. It also includes US$1.36 million for technical studies and supervision (e.g., energy audits, technical designs, construction supervision), and US$0.2 million for contractor training. 14. Status. The Project has financed renovation of 50 buildings, additional 7 buildings are under renovation, while contracts were signed for renovation of 30 more buildings, and has energy audits and designs underway for additional 20 buildings (or 107 out of the 140-building target). 15. Proposed changes. Several changes are proposed. a. Implementing arrangements. The KEEF will be delegated some implementation responsibilities under Component 1b (Pilot Energy Efficiency Investment Program for Municipalities) related to selection of subprojects, procurement of energy audits and technical designs, procurement and oversight of renovation works, contract management and commissioning and verification of energy savings. However, the financial management, disbursement and flow of funds arrangements under the IDA credit will remain under the responsibility of the MED/KEEA. Rather than require cofinancing for Component 1b, the KEEF would enter into energy service agreements, which will obligate participating municipalities to repay the cost or a portion of the cost of the investment plus fees from the generated energy cost savings resulting from investments. b. Municipal Subprojects. It is proposed that the Municipal Subproject definition be expanded to include municipal-owned and operated public lighting (in addition to public buildings). It is also proposed that US$1.1 million (or SDR 0.798 million) of the IDA credit be reallocated from Component 1a to Component 1b. The disbursement category for Component 1b will remain the same but the disbursement percentage will be increased from 75 to 100 percent. c. EU-IPA grant. An addition of €8.55 million grant (~US$10.0 million) from EU-IPA funds will be added as a Recipient-Executed Trust Fund (RETF) to support Components 1b (€7.55m for Pilot Energy Efficiency Investment Program for Municipalities) and 1c (€1m for Technical Studies and Supervision). The US$4.5 million in IDA funds and US$1.5 million of Government counterpart funding allocated under the parent Project for Component 1B will remain the same. 16. For the EU-IPA AF, the funds would be used to support: (a) Financing of building renovations (€7.55 million): Supporting the financing of renovation works for eligible buildings4 . About €0.55 million could be used to support partial investment grants to support renovation investments that would have payback periods greater than 15 years. (b) Technical studies related to investments (€1.0 million): Support and technical assistance for (i) awareness raising and marketing; (ii) detailed energy audits; (ii) technical designs and construction supervision; (iv) building commissioning and measurement and verification; (v) monitoring and evaluation; and (vi) future business planning. Component 2: Policy and Regulatory Support for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency 17. Description. This US$2.3 million component provides support to the Energy Regulatory Office (ERO) for EE and RE and support to the MED and the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP) for EE legislation and implementation. 18. Status. One major RE/EE technical assistance (TA) package has been completed (covering an update of the feed-in-tariff (FiT) scheme for biomass and biogas, a grid integration study (integration of wind power to the transmission system), RE barrier analysis, updating of district heating tariffs for Termokos) and another one for EE (pilot EE program for homeowners’ associations - HOAs) is nearing completion. This support to ERO, along with other donors/IFIs, has helped increase the installed RE capacity from about 35.8 MW at the beginning of the Project to about 254.8 MW today. Two additional technical assistance packages have been contracted and expected to be completed by May 2020. The first will cover support for ERO to determine a least cost planning for an optimal renewable energy mix and a grid integration study at the distribution level to incorporate distributed renewable energy generation. The second will cover EE and include scaling-up of EE in HOAs to add 12-15 buildings, secondary legislation for EE/ESCO procurement, and support for a KEEA public awareness campaign. 19. Proposed changes. None. This component will be completed by June 2020. Component 3: Project Implementation Support 20. Description. This US$0.64 million component provides funds to support the MED to effectively implement the project through the creation of a project implementation unit (PIU) under KEEA to carry out procurement, financial management, technical oversight, project monitoring and reporting, and financial audits. 21. Status. The PIU is staffed with a Project Manager, a Construction Engineer, a Civil Engineer (and Environmental Focal Point), a part-time Procurement Specialist, and an Office Assistant. A part-time Financial Management Specialist position was opened as the former Financial Management Specialist resigned in early September 2019. The PIU is performing their tasks satisfactorily and about half the funds allocated in this component have been disbursed to date. 22. Proposed changes. An additional €0.80 million from the EC grant would be added to cover additional KEEF operating costs for its first 4 years including salaries for the KEEF Managing Director and staff; office supplies/equipment, site visits, etc. Staff will continue to do marketing, investment screening, audit/design reviews, procurement, oversight, environmental and social safeguards, repayment collection, monitoring and reporting, etc.

Project Value 27 Million
Project Detail

Project Development Objective PDO Statement 21. The Project Development Objectives are to: (i) reduce energy consumption in the public sector; and (ii) support the development and implementation of a sustainable financing mechanism for energy efficiency in the public sector. PDO Level Indicators 22. Progress towards the PDO would be monitored according to the following indicators: (a) projected lifetime energy savings from EE investments in the public sector (MJ); and (b) establishment and operationalization of an EE Fund. B. Project Components 23. The Project would include three components: (i) energy efficiency investments in the public sector; (ii) technical assistance (TA) and project implementation support; and (iii) Initial capital for the proposed Energy Efficiency Fund. 24. Component 1. Energy efficiency investments in the public sector (€18 million IBRD). Under this Component, EE and some renewable energy (RE) investments (“subprojects”) would be undertaken in public facilities (covering municipal buildings, central government buildings and public lighting,). It is expected that these subprojects will generate demonstrable energy cost savings and social co-benefits, which would form the basis for developing a sustainable mechanism under the proposed EE Fund. This component would support preparation of the energy audits and technical designs, technical audits, construction supervision, final commissioning/energy performance certificates (all to be procured by the PIU), as well as renovation works for municipal buildings (procured by the municipalities) and renovation of central government buildings (health buildings) to be procured directly by PIU. Centralized preparation work will be important to ensure the preparation documents are consistently prepared and of high quality, given that many municipalities have limited expertise in reviewing such documents. (a) Component 1(a) EE Investments in Municipal Sector (Est. cost €10.5 million). Municipalities would apply for financing on a rolling basis with proposals for the renovation of building under their management and public lighting systems. Financing would be provided through sub-loan agreements currently utilized under the ongoing Municipal Services Improvement Project (MSIP). Sub-loans would generally be repaid over a 7-12-year period, with a 20% grant portion. The Project would seek to support costeffective renovations of eligible municipal buildings and municipal-managed public lighting6 . Proposed building eligibility criteria would include: (i) ownership by (or assigned to) the local government (excluding municipally-owned enterprises, private buildings with municipal tenants)7 ; (ii) must be structurally and seismically safe8 , not had a full EE renovation in the past 10 years, and be at least 5 years old; and (iii) no plans for office moves, closure, building demolition or privatization; and (iv) sufficient utilization rates (e.g., at least 60%9 of the designed capacity of the building is being used). The PIU needs to make sure that selected buildings meet the eligibility criteria and structural safety requirement before energy audits are contracted. Eligible municipalities must have sufficient debt capacity to borrow for the proposed subproject. Proposed eligible investments would include building envelope measures (roofs/wall insulation, windows, doors), heating/cooling systems, water heating, pumps/fans and lighting. Some RE applications (e.g., rooftop solar PV, biomass heating, solar water heating, geothermal or air sourced heat pumps) could also be considered if they meet the economic criteria and are primarily used to offset the building’s electricity/fuel use (rather than to generate power to sell to the grid). A limited amount of funds (e.g., 10%) could be allocated for non-EE measures (e.g., rewiring, minor structural repairs, painting, seismic safety, etc.) provided that the overall subproject could still have a simple payback period under 12-15 years. The Project would seek to ensure minimum technical performance of the renovated buildings (i.e., country’s Class C energy performance certificates or higher) and should include a minimum savings of 20%, an investment cost of at least €50,000 but not more than €750,000, and a maximum simple payback period of 12-15 years. Procedures will be detailed in the Project Operations Manual (POM) which is approved by the Bank. (b) Component 1b. EE Investments in Central Government Buildings (€5 million). Some of the public buildings that provide public services at the local level are managed by the central government, and this includes health centers and regional hospitals. Under this Component, energy efficiency and renewable energy investments would be undertaken in public buildings managed by the central government focusing on the health sector. The Project would support preparation of energy audits, technical design, renovation works, construction supervision and all services and works would be procured directly by the PIU. The Ministry of Health (MOH) has developed plans for the buildings to be renovated. It was agreed the component will focus on primary healthcare clinics (outpatient) with prioritization on those that are older, more dilapidated and have higher energy use. The MOH team also proposed to renovate the Institute for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in Skopje. A list of 36 primary health care clinics (health homes) has been identified and will be the focus of the first years of implementation. (c) Component 1c. Technical studies to support investments (€2.5 million). This subcomponent will support subproject screening, detailed energy audits, technical designs and technical specifications, and construction supervision for investments undertaken in Components 1a and 1b. It would also include technical assessments needed for adequate disposal of any hazardous materials from the renovations as well as their actual disposal. 25. Component 2. Technical assistance and implementation support (€1.94 million IBRD). The draft Energy Efficiency Law, which includes a provision for the establishment of the proposed EE Fund, was approved by the Government and submitted to Parliament on October 8. It is expected to be enacted before the end of 2019. This, along with various transposed EU directives and other secondary legislation and regulations provide a strong basis for EE in the public sector. However, additional efforts will be required to develop the supporting bylaws, additional strategies and plans, and the necessary bylaws or regulation to establish the proposed EE Fund and amendment of the Law of the Development Bank of North Macedonia. Specific proposed activities would include: a) Support to develop the EE Fund. Work under this activity would include: (i) the drafting of amendments to the legal framework required for the establishment of the EE Fund including the governance structure; (ii) develop the financing modalities (e.g., loans, energy service agreements, budget capture, debt financing, guarantees, partial grants, etc.), services to be provided, target markets, financial projections and fee structure of the Fund to ensure its sustainability; (iii) develop the detailed organizational structure, management and staffing plans; (iv) development of financing agreements and other legal documents/templates to support the EE Fund’s operation; (v) development of the administrative and operational procedures; (vi) develop a 3-5-year business plan; and (vi) a staffing recruitment plan including TORs for key positions. b) TA for additional secondary EE legislation. Provisions of TA will also be provided to MOE to support broader EE secondary legislation and support to further EE market development (to be determined once the EE Law has been adopted but may include updates of EE-related rulebooks for buildings and building performance certificates, support for homeowner association legislation to allow for commercial borrowing and signing of contracts, development of the long-term building renovation strategy (under the revised Energy Performance in Building Directive), regulations for net-metering for rooftop solar PV installations on public and residential buildings, etc.); c) Training of market actors. Support will be provided for targeted information campaigns and training of EE market actors (e.g., energy auditors, design firms, construction companies, commissioning inspectors) to ensure adequate demand for municipal applications, technical competencies and learning lessons from early projects as well as sensitizing of DBNM, commercial banks, ESCOs, etc.; and d) Project implementation support. Support for the implementation of the Project including costs of the PIU. 26. Component 3. Initial capital for the proposed EE Fund (€5 million). In order to ensure that the EE Fund is established within the lifetime of the Project, and to ensure that investment capital is available for the Fund once it is established, it was agreed that €5 million would be set aside to be used by the EE Fund once it is established. The funds would be used to support EE Fund staff, operating costs, marketing, initial audits/designs and investments. The funds would not be used until the EE Fund is legally established, a set of operating procedures (operations manual) have been adopted by the Fund’s Board of Directors and approved by the Bank, an investment and staffing plan have been approved by the Board and Bank, the Fund has a minimum number of staff to operate effectively and the Bank has conducted an assessment of the Fund’s technical, fiduciary and safeguards capacities. 27. It is expected that investments under Components 1 and 2 will help to stimulate the energy efficiency markets for public buildings and street lighting and demonstrate that the energy cost savings and improvements in service quality (i.e., improved heating, better lighting, increased safety) will enable the investment costs to be repaid under Component 1. In parallel, TA under Component 2 would work to establish the proposed EE Fund. Once the EE Fund is established, Component 3 would allow the Fund to initiate its operations to serve as the main implementing arm for public sector energy efficiency investments going forward. Transitional arrangement will be agreed with Government of North Macedonia if there are remaining funds under component 1a to ensure that municipal projects financed under MoF do not compete with the new financing mechanism provided by the fund. Typical trajectories of such funds show that the first 3-5 years would focus on ensuring the fund’s staffing, pipeline and financing modalities are successful; the subsequent period (i.e., 5-10 years) would seek to recapitalize the fund, scale-up and leveraging more commercial financing. The Fund could eventually serve other sectors not served by local commercial banks, such as multifamily apartment buildings, single-family homes and other market segments, on a more sustainable and scaled-up basis.

Open book EPC for Brussels’ condominiums
Company Name ENERGIRIS SCRL
Funded By 38
Country Belgium , Western Europe
Project Value 8,15,700
Project Detail

"The objective of easyCOPRO is to develop a fully-fledged renovation package for Brussels based condominiums. The package will include financial means and technical assistance which aims at significantly simplifying the decision-making process of co-owners and property managers to engage into heavy refurbishment procedures. Third party financing energy performance contracts will be signed with the beneficiaries. We call them ""open book EPC ""because they will be elaborated together with the beneficiaries in a fully transparent manner. The specific objective of easyCOPRPO is to retrofit an average of 20 condominiums between 2018 and 2022 worth a total investment of 10 million €. All the buildings will have been audited, technically and financially assessed and specifications will have been developed. The partners of this project have the technical expertise to develop all steps needed from the open book EPC to the energy audits and action plans. The consortium includes one third-party investor which has the capacity to finance the retrofit measures and thereby offers the possibility to overcome a significant upfront barrier. The standardised tools to be developed in this package will ensure a replicability on regional, national and EU level. easyCOPRO will develop, test and improve over four years a set of standardised tools (""tool box"") which can very easily be reused by other property managers, developers or third party investors to refurbish on large scale the Brussels pool of condominiums. The package proposal of easyCOPRO offers innovation in financial engineering, in overcoming administrative, legal and financial barriers and a high degree of replicability. These elements should unlock by 2022 additional investments in energy efficiency of 10 million € in the Brussels region.

4RinEU will define robust, cost-effective, tailorable deep renovation technology packages supported by usable methodologies, feeding into reliable business models. The project will minimize failures in design and implementation, manage different stages of the deep renovation process, from the preliminary audit up to the end-of-life, and provide information on energy, comfort, users’ impact, and investment performance. The 4RinEU deep renovation strategy is based on 3 pillars: (i) technology (driven by robustness) to decrease net primary energy use (60 to 70% compared to pre-renovation), allowing a reduction of life cycle costs over 30 years (15% compared to a typical renovation) (ii) methodology (driven by usability) to support the design and implementation of the technologies improving the information flow and knowledge sharing among stakeholders to sustain participative design, ensuring to halve the current renovation time (iii) business models (driven by reliability) to enhance the level of confidence of deep renovation investors, increasing the EU building stock transformation rate up to 3% by 2020. The 10 main results of 4RinEU will address the following objectives: Technology: to reduce demand (Prefab Multifunctional Façade, Comfort Ceiling Fan), to improve energy efficiency (Plug&Play Energy Hub, Objective-based RES Implementation), to improve building operations (Sensible Building Data Handler), and to reduce construction waste (Strategies for Components End-Of-Life). Methodology: to accurately understand renovation issues and potentials (Cost-Optimal Energy Audit), to ensure an effective and participated design (Investor and Building User-Oriented Design Tool and Method based on BIM), to reduce construction time and failures (Deep Renovation Implementation Management). Business model: to identify the level of risk of renovation process and to enable well-founded investments supported by tailor-made financial tools (Cost-effectiveness Rating System).

Improving Cold Chain Energy Efficiency
Company Name UNIVERSITA DEGLI STUDI DI BRESCIA
Funded By 38
Country Italy , Western Europe
Project Value 2 Million
Project Detail

The ICCEE (Improving Cold Chain Energy Efficiency) project will facilitate Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the cold chains of the food and beverage sector to undertake energy efficiency measures (EEMs) after carrying out supply chain energy audits. The focus on the cold chains of the sector is due to the significant energy requirements (refrigerated transport, processing and storage) with large potentials for savings. The implementation of the holistic approach, shifting from the single company perspective to the chain assessment, lead to increased opportunities for EEMs. To enable the update of EEMs, ICCEE will a) implement and apply an analytical energy efficiency tool to support and facilitate decision-making at different company organisational levels and b) launch a capacity building program towards staff and relevant stakeholders and a community dedicated to support a change in energy culture of the sector. The feasibility of EEMs will be evaluated by considering economic, environmental and social impacts encompassing their entire life cycle and the entire supply chain. Non-energy benefits and behavioural aspects will also be addressed and recommendations on financing schemes for SMEs will be assessed. The first part of the trainings will reach 300 companies through 20 national workshops thanks to the collaboration of associations in the consortium. 32 companies will be trained for the use of the tool in 4 EU workshops. At a final step, ICCEE will launch e-learning courses, which will be available also beyond the project’s lifetime reaching at least additional 64 companies. ICCEE will introduce primary energy savings (118 GWh/year), increase invested capital in sustainable energy (64 million €), and reduce GHG emissions (40,376 tonCO2/year). Capacity building activities allow to increase stakeholders’ knowledge and enhance their energy culture (2000 people). Outcomes from ICCEE will also support policymakers in defining tailored policies for the sector.

B. Project Components 16. The Project would include two components: (i) EE investments in central government buildings; and (ii) technical assistance (TA) and project implementation support. 17. Component 1. Energy efficiency investments in central government buildings (US$150 million IBRD, US$46.2 million concessional CTF loan). Under this component, MoEU will support the renovation of central government and central-government affiliated buildings (i.e., public buildings under central line ministries, such as schools and hospitals). It is expected that such subprojects will generate demonstrable energy cost savings and social co-benefits, which would form the basis for developing a national-level program for EE in public buildings. While there is no database of eligible buildings, a previous MENR study, supported under the IBRD/GEF SME Energy Efficiency Project estimated that there are about 175,280 public buildings in Turkey, of which at least 5% are likely to be central government or affiliated buildings, which would require about US$1.8 billion of investment. It is estimated the Project could renovate 500- 700 buildings, depending on the building sizes and measures undertaken. The PIU has identified an initial subproject pipeline consisting of 50 buildings for Year 1 and over 100 buildings for Year 2. a. Component 1(a): Conventional EE investments in central government buildings [US$155.2 million, including US$130 million IBRD, US$25.2 million CTF concessional loan]. Under this subcomponent, MoEU will renovate eligible buildings, based on periodic calls for proposals, to improve EE performance. Agreed building eligibility criteria include: (i) ownership by (or assigned to) the central government (excluding publicly-owned enterprises, private buildings with public agency tenants)7 ; (ii) must be structurally and seismically safe8 , with no high flood risk, not had a full EE renovation in the past 10 years and be at least 5 years old; and (iii) no plans for office moves, closure, building demolition or privatization. If Project applications exceed available annual investment thresholds, applicants will be ranked based on the existence of energy audits, energy performance certificates or a registration ID in MENR’s portal for monitoring energy consumption, higher annual energy consumption (kWh/m2 ), larger number of beneficiaries, and broad geographic coverage. Eligible investments9 have been agreed and are further elaborated in the Project Operations Manual (POM). The Project would seek to ensure minimum technical performance of the renovated buildings (i.e., Turkish Class C energy performance certificates or higher) and should include a minimum savings of 20%, an investment cost of at least US$50,000, but not more than US$1,000,000, and a maximum simple payback period of under 12 years for the combination of measures.
