Download the Transparense project final brochure (October 2015) "Towards Transparent Energy Performance Contracting Markets" with a summary of the project's results. Learn about the uptake of the European Code of Conduct for EPC and the latest market developments.
The European Code of Conduct for Energy Performance Contracting (EPC Code of Conduct) 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 has been developed within the Intelligent Energy Europe project Transparense in cooperation with inter alia EPC providers, clients and European ESCO associations. The two organisations representing ESCOs at the European level - European Association of Energy Service Companies (eu.esco) and European Federation of Intelligent Energy Efficiency Services (EFIEES) endorse the European Code of Conduct for EPC and support its use when implementing EPC projects.
The EPC Code of Conduct will expectantly serve as a harmonized European quality standard of EPC projects, raise potential clients' confidence in the business model and thus lead to higher demand for the EPC projects. The list of the EPC Code signatories is available online and promoted within eu.esco and EFIEES activities (press releases, articles, national and international events).
EPC providers who become signatories of the EPC Code undertake to conduct EPC projects in compliance with the EPC Code of Conduct. It is a voluntary commitment of the EPC providers and is not legally binding.

Status on 1st of September 2015: 161 signatories in Europe (118 EPC providers, 12 associations of EPC providers and 31 other entities operating on the EPC market).
