The European Energy Performance in Buildings Directive (EPBD) defines the increase of energy efficiency (EE) in public buildings.
The European Energy Performance in Buildings Directive (EPBD) defines the increase of energy efficiency (EE) in public buildings as an important milestone for the achievement of the European energy savings and climate protection targets. In order to facilitate and finance EE improvements in public buildings, the EU promotes the concept of energy performance contracting (EPC) and other forms of ESC.
In due course of project implementation, more than 5,700 experts and decision makers on the demand side of the market for EPC in public buildings were reached and enabled as well as encouraged to make use of EPC business models for EE improvements in public buildings.
EnPC-INTRANS information and training materials are available for free download from the project website in 10 different languages.

Resources needed

Total cost: EUR 1 922 870,85
EU contribution(100%):EUR 1 922 870,10

Evidence of success

A group of 51 trainers was trained to provide information and training on EPC in public buildings to these target groups.They reached more than 3,500 stakeholders and experts. The trainees applied their newly acquired information and know-how in a number of new EPC projects triggering new EE investments in the total amount of at least 129 Million EURO and total energy savings of at least 87 GWh/year.One-third of these projects are already contracted, the other is in the tender preparation stage.

Difficulties encountered

-Deficits in information and expertise that prevent the market uptake of EPC in Slovenia.
-Lacks concrete information about EE and EPC measures.
- Lack trained personnel at all stages of EPC project development and implementation.

Potential for learning or transfer

Relevant EPC business models were specified and results published as the basis for further information and training activities. Training materials were developed and adapted to the target groups’ needs and intentions. Seminars, information events and online tutorials (webinars) were offered in the countries, flanked by an e-learning course offered for remote self-studies.
EnPC-INTRANS training materials are translated and available for free download from the project website in English and the nine partner languages: Croatian, German, Greek, Latvian, Romanian, Serbian, Slovakia, Slovenian and Ukrainian. The project website will be kept operational for at least two years beyond project duration.
