European Cooperation regarding energy-performance contracting EU-Project “EnPC-INTRANS” started successfully in nine countries
Extensive increase of capacity for performance contracting planned on municipal level Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) is an essential instrument for the efficient use of energy in municipal buildings and provides a solution to the challenge municipalities are facing: how to retrofit buildings when budgets are too scarce. This efficient instrument must achieve a more widespread application in the eastern part of the European Markets in Transition. This is an objective of “EnPC-Intrans”-project, which has been operational since March 2015.
“EnPC-INTRANS” means „Capacity Building on Energy Performance Contracting in European Markets in Transition“. The aim of the project is to increase the market acceptance of performance contracting in the participating countries and to enhance capacity building on the supply side, as well as to support the creation of demand. The EU supports the EnPC-INTRANS project with almost 2 Mio. Euro for two years, during which energy-savings of about 60 gigawatt hours/year should be achieved.
