During the last four years, the BundleUP project (aka Ponto Energia) aimed to create a best practice, at the Portuguese level, by implementing a pipeline of energy-efficiency based investments, with emphases in the public sector, through the bundling of small to medium-sized projects, providing them with the dimension needed for investment-readiness and investor interest. To achieve this goal we harmonized procurement documentation of energy efficiency and explored new types of funding for energy efficiency.
As a direct impact of the project, we helped fund 47 projects, worth over 34M€, with a considerable impact in energy waste reduction, enabling savings of about 14 221 tons of CO2/year, by cutting energy waste by 35,2 GWh/year, while increasing solar energy production by installing 2,8 MW of PV that has an annual green energy production of 4,2 GWh.
In this event we will share with a European wide audience the project implementation process, our final conclusions and its legacy expectations, transferable to other European stakeholders.
