Abstract: This article explores the potential for energy performance contracting (EPC) to improve the energy consumption of existing buildings, using Australia as an example of a gradually maturing market. A review of EPC around the world is provided as the context and the question of the expansion of this activity into the non-commercial building sector is investigated. To determine the scope for expanded activities, a survey of energy efficiency organizations was carried out. It was found that some organizations were more prepared to extend beyond their current areas of activity and saw the potential of new markets, possibly by entering into partnerships with energy suppliers. Almost all the organizations surveyed were optimistic about growing their activity in the future. The article concludes by indicating considerable potential for action given changes to regulatory and market conditions.
