Energy Performance Contract of the Museum of Modern Art in Saint-Etienne Rhône-Alpes, France

Saint-Etienne Métropole has been engaged in a Climate Plan since 2008. To fulfill its commitment to this climate plan, the local authority opted to use the Energy Performance Contract (EPC) to renew the energy systems of the Museum of Modern Art. The first meeting on EPC between Saint-Etienne Métropole and SIEL took place in June 2009. The EPC focuses on a more efficient heating and cooling system while maintening a high level of requirements on performances (temperature, humidity,….) which is essential for the conservation of art works and for the welcoming quality of visitors and staff.
