GOAL: Standardize the way energy efficiency projects are developed, documented and measured in order to facilitate private investments and enable project aggregation. The standardization methodology ICP has developed, which follows best practice and involves independent verification, is essential to increasing transparency, consistency and trustworthiness of energy efficiency projects and therefore builds investors' confidence in this market. These principles apply equally to publicly funded projects and programmes as well as to projects internally financed by all types of organisations.
ACTION: ICP has developed the Investor Ready Energy Efficiency™ Certification for energy efficiency projects which can be granted to projects that are developed following ICP Protocols and are independently verified by an ICP Quality Assurance professional. IREE™ is already available for building energy efficiency projects, industry and energy supply energy efficiency projects and street lighting upgrades.
ICP engages investors in Europe committed to energy efficiency through its Investor Network, representing 1.5bn euros in capital available to deploy, with some of them offering incentives to IREE projects.
OUR STORY: ICP was initiated in the United States in 2011 with support from the Environmental Defense Fund. In 2015, ICP was brought to Europe thanks to a grant from the European Commission's Horizon 2020 Research programme. In January 2017, ICP entered into a partnership with GBCI, which will ensure a global reach to the ICP System and IREE™ Certification.
