Thank to the EPC simulation tool realized by STEPPING project ; 10 Investment plans were implemented in Regions from FR, GR, IT, PT, SP, SI.
The EPC Simulation Tool realized by STEPPING project is now published online. The main objective of this tool is to find different investment scenarios that would balance the public and private interest in making the investment.
The profitability of the investment is assessed by some economic parameters such as Profitability Index, Net Present Value, Internal Rate of Return. The variables that would make attractive the investment are:
Duration of contract;
Thermal energy saving rate;
Electric energy saving rate;
Fee on baseline cost.
Moreover the tool was specifically designed to assess an investment plan of a bundling of buildings. The outputs provided by the tool will be, thus, based on the bundle and not on the single building.
