In 2013, the European Commission will be running an EPC Campaign targeting specific EU Member States. The Covenant of Mayors is involved in this campaign through the organisation of webinars that will focus on the barriers and solutions encountered by municipalities that have been using EPC. Priority countries for upcoming webinars are Italy, Spain, France, Greece, Germany, Poland, Belgium, Portugal and Romania. These webinars will be held in the national language of the countries covered.
Signatories willing to share their experience on EPC, suggest speakers to take part in future webinars, or raise any question about this topic are invited to do so by subscribing to the dedicated discussion list. To subscribe to the list, members of the Covenant of Mayors community are invited to login to their profile and tick the discussion list button under “My Account”> “My Profile”.
EPC is an alternative financing scheme for building renovation that is getting an increased visibility at the European level following the adoption of the Energy Efficiency Directive last October. In short, EPC means a contractual arrangement between a beneficiary (in this case the municipality) and the provider of an energy-efficient improvement (ESCO – energy service company). The investments are then repaid by a contractually agreed level of energy efficiency improvement and/or financial savings.
