The reasons why EU citizens cannot invest in energy efficiency investment opportunities with a good financial return are similar to the reasons why the ESCO market does not develop as fast as expected .
This is another market failure since citizens will be highly interested to earn a 10% interest rate while society needs these energy savings for a cost-effective energy transition.
Metering technology is advancing fast [4, 61], energy management systems are being put in place and solutions for peer-to-peer transactions are emerging. This gives hope that the future may significantly differ from the past.
