The QualitEE survey has collected data surrounding the main drivers and barriers of business for ESCOs in Czech Republic. This is an excellent opportunity to compare the structural differences of ESCO markets to identify policies or mechanisms that account for such variance. Policies can then be built to complement existing drivers and overcome identified barriers.
