A lecture about Energy Performance Contracting at the University of Fribourg on the 26th of March 2019, was given by Greenwatt.

The lecture was used as a practical case for the students in a “Strategic Niche Management” module including a group work. Greenwatt explained them the importance of this type of financing tool to accelerate the refurbishment rate of buildings and explain them that this is a hot topic which is part of current research within RECO2ST.

The presentation of the students results was very impressive, every group thoroughly investigated their market, challenges, difficulties and opportunities. The students were very motivated by the topic and we were impressed by the quality of their work! We could really take a couple of interesting ideas and/or recommendation that we might actually implement or take into account in our work within RECO2ST.
