About us

Ylem Group has identified a need within the ESCO / EPC market for an SME contractor that is client-centric and offers long-term relationships that are mutually beneficial to both client and contractor.

It has formed a new company, Ylem EPC, with the express purpose of providing ESCOs and EPCs.

Ylem EPC benefits from the experience already gained by the Ylem Group in this sector combined with the expertise it has attracted into the company. Its team members have been delivering EPCs for over a decade.

What we do

We are a provider of Energy Services Contracts (ESCos) and the more specialist Energy Performance Contracts (EPCs). We don’t get distracted and are completely dedicated to each project. For you, our partner, this translates into the kind of personalised attention you need and a guarantee that Ylem will deliver.

We provide expert services in the following areas: energy consultancy, site surveys, Investment Grade Audits (IGAs), installation and maintenance, energy saving guarantees, turnkey energy performance contracts and energy funding solutions.

What is an ESCo?

An Energy Services Contract (ESCo) is an energy-related contract where the supplier (Ylem) provides energy services within a long-term project. This could be heat for a community or a district heating network, for example. The supplier will operate and maintain the services for the lifetime of the contract. Often the design, supply, install and finance of the services are included in the contract.

What is an EPC?

An Energy Performance Contract (EPC) is a specific type of ESCO. The supplier (Ylem) implements and maintains measures on your site(s) to reduce your energy, water and / or maintenance costs, similar to a standard ESCO. The difference with an EPC is that the supplier guarantees the savings from the saving measures for the duration of the contract.

Richard put forward a solution that provided energy savings while meeting the Trust’s needs to replace aged plant. He was involved at all stages of the contract forming a good long term working relationship with the Estates Team. Richard was always professional in his approach and proactive in relation to energy savings at the Trust and we would be happy to work with Richard again in the future.
