The Dutch ESCO market has been assessed in terms of policy, financing and current and forecast market developments. A summary market research has been carried out for the United States ESCO market. This research leads to the conclusion that the Dutch ambitions in Energy Efficiency for the built environment and the legal framework that surrounds it hold opportunities for ESCOs to develop a viable business. The Dutch government and her subsidiaries are the greatest prospective client of energy services. If the Dutch government wants to fulfill their EU commitment of being a launching customer for energy services in The Netherlands, they should specifically include ESCOs in their energy efficiency improvement projects for their own building stock.
