Development of guidelines to enhance implementation of Energy Efficiency in municipal buildings through energy service companies

Urban Earth was contract by the South African Cities Network to develop guidelines to enhance the implementation of energy efficiency in municipal buildings throughout South Africa. The aim of the energy efficiency in municipal buildings programme was to build the capacity of municipalities in South Africa to use energy performance contracting as tool to implement the roll-out of energy efficiency projects in the building sector. Urban Earth's role in the project was to conduct research and develop guidelines (though the website www.energycontractsupport.org) on performance contracting best practice in South Africa.
