Energy savings companies offer “performance contracting” - i.e. assuming the risk of delivering the energy saving measures proposed to a client, which can serve as a useful model for companies that have identified energy saving opportunities but lack the financial resources to implement action, the report said.

EcoVis has provided engineering consultancy services to dozens of organisations in the UAE, including hotels, factories and government buildings. The Yellow Door Energy project for Novotel Fujairah is its first  shared savings contract.
