Hi, and welcome to my personal homesite. I am an engineer with a passion for sustainable development, especially in the fields of energy and climate change. I am also an aspiring photographer. Read more
I work as an energy and climate adviser in north Skåne in Sweden. I work with industry, private home owners and organizations. I have a MoS in engineering physics my from Lund's University of Technology (LTH). I have specialized in environmental technology which has given me broad knowledge in environmental and energy systems, renewable energy, climate change and other areas. For more info about me I suggest you take a look at the About Me section
I have been writing my master thesis at Schneider Electric. I have looked into an assortment of energy contracting models on the Swedish and German energy service markets. The thesis can be downloaded here:
There are many energy contracting models being used on the energy service markets today. They have different approaches to energy efficiency and they can also work differently on different markets. This thesis looks deeper into a number of energy contracting models and assesses how they function as well as looking into their strengths and weaknesses. Furthermore, these contracting models will be analyzed on the Swedish and German markets, looking into trends, opportunities and threats. The energy contracting models that have been investigated include: Energy Performance Contracting, Energy Supply Contracting, Integrated Energy Contracting, Chauffage and Facility Management. Some of these business models have been used on the market for longer periods of time while others have recently been developed or are starting to gain market shares. The Swedish and German energy service markets are both considered mature. There are however some interesting differences which affect what types of energy contracts are common and how they are used. The different approaches to energy efficiency that the investigated business models present together with the assessment of how they can work on different markets can give insights into the current market situation and how it can develop in the future. There is a constant need to develop both existing and new business models to meet the customer needs. Hopefully, this thesis can serve as a basis for further discussions on introducing new, or developing existing business models on different types of markets.
