To encourage the energy efficiency market potential in the service sector through the innovation of EPC contracts and to facilitate energy efficiency investment and renewable sources energy production: this is the objective of the European project EPC Trust South, implemented by the Horizon 2020 framework Programme. Together with Officinae Verdi, ten parteners of six different countries (Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Croatia and Greece) are part of this project.

In Italy energy efficiency can play a key role in the alignment of the country to the European CO2 reduction targets established by the Climate Package in 2030, for an estimated turnover of 5 billion and 200 million euro/year. However, legislation and administrative uncertainties in Italy have quite an impact on the growth path traced by UE.

South Trust EPC has as main purpose to facilitate the investment in energy efficiency of the service sector and to build trust in the market for EPC contracts. Among the initiatives, there is the development of a platform for discussion and coordination involving financial institutions and service sector companies, political and legal authorities, experts, stakeholders and energy service companies (ESCOs) in order to find financial solutions to overcome the main obstacles in each country. Moreover, it aims to define methods of intervention based on the solutions developed and that will be used also in otehr market segments.
