PRESS RELEASE EFIEES and eu.esco become European co-administrators of the European Code of Conduct for Energy Performance Contracting

02. 09. 2015


The European Federation of Intelligent Energy Efficiency Services (EFIEES) and the European Association of Energy Service Companies (eu.esco) become official European co-administrators of the European Code of Conduct for Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) as of 1st September 2015.

The European Code of Conduct for EPC (EPC Code of Conduct) has been developed within the project Transparense1 co-funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Union. The EPC Code of Conduct is a voluntary commitment which defines the basic values and principles that are considered fundamental for the successful preparation and implementation of EPC projects within European countries.

The EPC Code of Conduct already has a significant number of signatories across Europe2 and is being put into practice. It has been successfully used to introduce clients to the EPC concept and has been seen as a unique selling proposition.

"The main role of the European Code of Conduct for EPC is to bring confidence to the EPC market in the EU, taking into account its variety across Member States," says Valérie Plainemaison, Secretary General of the European Federation of Intelligent Energy Efficiency Services (EFIEES).

"It is a positive sign towards the market and a resilient foundation for long-term business development," says Volker Dragon, Chairman of the European Association of Energy Service Companies (eu.esco).

As a proven energy service model, EPC offers the opportunity to make a significant contribution in meeting the EU's carbon and energy targets.
