Pilot projects

It is expected that by adhering to the EPC core values and to the principles of the European Code of Conduct for EPC, ESCOs and clients will develop a solid foundation for a working partnership based on trust and confidence. These expectations have been tested by applying the Code of Conduct in 37 Transparense EPC pilot projects. Overall, the Code was perceived as clearly defined, reflecting all key requirements on ESCOs and clients in EPC projects.

The major stakeholders (both on the client and provider side) in the pilot projects have been interviewed. Detailed questionnaires were used for this purpose and served as the main data source for the evaluation and feedback provided by the project partners in the country reports (to be found on the national subsites) for each of 20 Transparense countries. The key findings are summarised below based on the European summary report. Moreover, six pilot projects are presented in detail in the brochure Towards Transparent Energy Performance Contracting Markets as best practice examples of EPC. The best practices have become also a part of the EESI2020 Best practice database.
