Mise en œuvre des contrats de performance énergétique pour l'amélioration des installations de production frigorifique

Abstract : Energy performance contracting is a contract form for energy services in which providers take over the financing of projects for facilities improvement by paying themselves through the energy savings generated. The use of such contracts, which are deemed particularly effective, is highlighted in the contents of European and national public policies for demand-side management. As such, energy performance contracts are expected to take part of existing devices for energy efficiency improvement, particularly in the context of white certificates systems and public tools for the improvement of the national and local governments heritage. However, their implementation depends on the development of suitable protocols for assessing the energy performance of facilities, especially when their performance depend on various parameters such as the chilled water plants. After having highlighted the energy efficiency carried by energy performance contracting, this thesis analyzes the technical obstacles in the way of such contracts implementation. Then, a suitable protocol for assessing typical improvements of chilled water plants is proposed by coupling modeling tools and on-site measurement procedures. Finally, we propose some adjustments of this protocol in order to enable the integration of typical improvements of chilled water plants under the white certificates systems, which seem to consider only elementary and easily reproducible projects.
