Transparense at EU Sustainable Energy Week Policy Conference on 18 June in Brussels
30. 06. 2015
Transparense project organised a session "Increasing quality and trust to make Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) markets flourish across Europe" on 18 June 2015 in Brussels, as part of the 2015 EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) Policy Conference.The session was led by the project coordinator, SEVEn - The Energy Efficiency Centre.
The Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) model offers the opportunity to make a significant contribution in meeting the EU's ambitious 2020 carbon and energy targets, yet very little of its potential has been harnessed when compared to advanced markets in the USA and Canada. This session will explore the barriers that have been holding back EPC business in Europe and will set out key strategies to accelerate its uptake.
The Transparense project, funded by the European Union's Intelligent Energy Europe programme, has been supporting the development of transparent EPC markets by establishing the European Code of Conduct for EPC and promoting its application to increase the quality of EPC.
We were delighted to have speakers from the two European associations of energy service providers, EFIEES and eu.ESCO, as well as the EESI2020 and ICP Europe projects. The session was moderated by Jaroslav Marousek, Chairman of the Board of SEVEn o.p.s., The Energy Efficiency Center.
