  • This paper provides an analysis of energy performance contracting approaches to learn from in the implementation of the Transition Zero programme. Energy performance contracting is a key element to make the net zero energy refurbishment commercially viable....

  • This paper provides a generic example of tender specifications for net zero energy (E=0) refurbishments, based on UK conditions. Within the Transition Zero project, work package 2 is about validating and tuning the business and delivery model for the UK and French markets, building on the earlier Energiesprong experience in the Netherlands....

  • As part of the Transition Zero project, the partners responsible for implementation have provided an update to the pre-proposal work plan, in order to refine their approach to its successful delivery. This paper, which forms Deliverable 1.1 of the project, explains the approach that is being taken, including the establishment of three national market delivery teams (MDTs) that will ensure that high quality technical reports are produced and widely disseminated....
