Contractual Issues

Part of the Green Energy and Technology book series (GREEN)


Once the retrofit measures have been identified, the remedial action should be implemented and energy performance must then be maintained. For the implementation of the measures and the management of building and facilities the owner/client can refer to external companies. A careful definition of contractual issues is a key element to promote the sustainable upgrading of a building in a transparent and efficient way. This chapter analyses aspects related to contractual issues within energy retrofit and energy management.
