ESCos are companies that provide services aimed at achieving energy efficiency, by making the initial capital investment and handling all process steps – energy audit, implementation of the project, mainteinance. Thanks to the certification, Asja is allowed to:
- provide services in the energy efficiency market (energy audits and energy efficiency projects);

Asja obtained the ESCo certification following a project of energy efficiency improvement it carried out at Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. The intervention, which involved the replacement of inefficient lighting system in two rooms, will provide an energy saving of about 68%, for a reduction of 2 MWh/year.
