Trust EPC South
Trust EPC South is a European project (co-funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme) aimed at promoting the use of EPC (Energy Performance Contracting) in energy efficiency investments in the tertiary sectors of Southern European countries.
Trust EPC South aims to unleash the tertiary sector market potential for private energy efficiency investments in Southern Europe by developing a new financial assessment instrument backed by an established building rating methodology (Green Rating™). Such instrument shall support energy service companies (EPC providers and faciliators), financing institutions and tertiary market actors thanks to the application of a standardised methodology to the investment assessment and decision processes, ultimately allowing to redeuce barriers to energy efficiency investments.
Trust EPC South poses itself the ambitious objective to support companies that operate in the energy services sector in Croatia, France, Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain. The project consortium, led by the Spanish firm CREARA, is composed by 9 interdisciplinary experts representing the 6 participating countries and by the international non-profit organisation Green Rating Alliance; the partners are united by the common intent to stimulate investments in the target markets, which are offering great opportunities for energy efficiency as well as energy performance contracting.
