Energy-as-a-service various contract models and technical combinations (so-called hybrid systems) are a rising trend in terms of energy efficiency improvement and major repairing of residential properties – both in housing companies/associations and in publicly owned residential properties.

Examples of real estate company-level energy system business models are the ESCO, EPC and Leasing models. The general idea of these models is that the customer who acquired the system (housing company, municipal rental company) does not pay the price of the investment at the time of commissioning, but pays off in parts during the contract period. A common factor in all these models is that the system vendor and the investment funder (usually a different organization) share the responsibility for the project. Energy-as-a-service business models have gradually begun to be applied both in public sector places (eg schools, kindergartens) and in private housing.

One of the focuses of #Cata3Pult project is energy- and ecoefficiency of housing stock.
