De-risking Energy Efficiency Platform (DEEP) 

As part of the work of the Energy Efficiency Financing Institutions Group (EEFIG), DEEP was developed to store information on energy efficiency projects across Europe and across sectors. It was designed to help up-scale investment into energy efficiency in Europe through improved transparency and analysis of energy efficiency projects in industry and buildings. DEEP was launched on 30th November 2016 with initial data on 7,877 projects with a total combined investment of €1.5 billion. The initial data was provided by 25 large companies, ESCOs and financial institutions. It is the largest pan-European, open-source evidence base for energy efficiency investments. 

The DEEP platform offers the following services:

  • The Key Figures page provides a quick overview of the Buildings and Industry projects in the DEEP
  • The Data Overview page provides a more comprehensive (but still aggregated) overview of the energy efficiency projects in the DEEP
  • The View Charts functionality allows the user to view and filter a number of predefined charts for Buildings / Industry energy efficiency projects
  • Add and Manage Projects presents the list of the current added projects connected to the users profile
  • The Analysis Toolbox allows the creation of charts in a dynamic and highly customisable manner
  • The Benchmark Service allows to benchmark the projects of the user against the projects of the Deep Platform database

As of 15 december 2017, the database included 5,014 industry projects and 5,152 buildings projects.
