This chapter suggests a new systematic approach to analyze the barriers and drivers of energy service contracting. In order to identify the key barriers, the proposed approach examines both direct and indirect causal relationships among barriers and allows a systematic analysis of the actors’ roles in influencing the market’s development. To justify the effectiveness and applicability of the proposed approach, a case is provided where the energy service contracting market in Turkey is examined.
