Trust EPC South

Trust EPC South

A HORIZON 2020 project - the European Commission’s program for financing sustainable energy.

TRUST EPC South is all about developing Energy Performance Contracts (EPC) in Southern European countries to scale up investments in Energy Efficiency (EE) and other Sustainable Energy (SE).

The GRA, as a member of the consortium, is playing an important role in the success of the project by working closely with financing institutions and certification bodies to develop a robust investment assessment and benchmarking tool based on the existing Green RatingTM methodology.


A geographic focus on where improvement is needed most

Geographically, the project is being carried out in six countries: Croatia, Greece, France, Italy, Portugal and Spain.

The common climate characteristics of these countries allow for the implementation of similar sustainable energy and energy efficiency solutions for cooling and heating.

During the final phase, project results will be extended to the Balkans region , thanks to the collaboration with the Association of the Balkan Chambers.
