About The European Code of Conduct for Energy Performance Contracting

Download the EPC (Energy Performance Contracting) European Code of Conduct.

The European Code of Conduct for Energy Performance Contracting (the “EPC Code of Conduct”) is a set of values and principles that are considered fundamental for the successful, professional and transparent implementation of Energy Performance Contracting (“EPC”) projects in European countries.

The EPC Code of Conduct defines the principles of the behaviour primarily of the EPC providers. At the same time, the EPC Code of Conduct is an EPC quality indicator for clients on what they should expect and require from EnPC providers and which principles they themselves should adhere to in order to achieve expected energy savings and related benefits.

Those European associations representing the ESCOs at a European level which also took part in Transparense are the following: the European Federation of Efficiency Services and Energy Intelligence (EFIEES) and the European Association of Energy Efficiency Service Companies (eu.esco) signed the EPC Code of Conduct and became the joint European administrators of the Code of Conduct from 1 September 2015.

For further details please contact your national administrator of the EPC Code of Conduct in your own country or the joint European administrators of the CPE Code of Conduct:

eu.esco | Simone Alessandri |

Status on June 2020: 240 signatories in Europe: 154 EPC suppliers, 15 EPC suppliers’ national associations, 1 European associations and 70 other bodies* which are active within the EPC market.
