:: Success story 3: “Capacity building on EPC”

Due to the complexity of Energy Performance Contracting, information and specialized capacitation are necessary for its successful implementation.

The European Energy Service Initiative offered these through trainings, workshops and seminars. These were very successful and highly demanded: more than 2000 participants took part of the capacitation offered by EESI, surpassing its target of 500 participants.

Besides the knowledge-transfer and capacity-building a fair number of project initiatives were the result of the EESI-trainings. Part of them has been dealt with in feasibility studies and some are already in deeper discussion of project development. However, the journey has only just begun and capacity building activities should continue.
