    Unlocking investment in industrial energy efficiency projects – how to deliver high quality projects and safer returns.

    Lack of standardisation in the development of energy efficiency projects in industry is a major barrier to investment, despite potentially attractive financial returns. It is impeded by a number of barriers including a lack of confidence in energy savings and a lack of standardised processes and documentation. The Investor Confidence Project (ICP) unlocks access to financing for the building, industry, district energy and street lighting markets by standardising how energy efficiency projects are developed, documented and measured. ICP providers an international certification that ensures best practices, the right professionals and third-party validation are used to deliver high quality projects that can be banked on. Having focussed specifically on the buildings sector, ICP Europe is now extending its approach to energy efficiency projects in the industrial, district energy and street lighting sectors.
