Smart EPC

Smart EPC enables the transition of local public authorities towards smart sustainable cities.

Smart EPC

Smart EPC aims to integrate energy efficiency services with other energy services and non-energy benefits, whilst focusing on energy performance contracting and the creation of new revenue streams for local authorities.

The project will work to enable the transition of local public authorities towards smart sustainable cities by:

  • utilising existing energy efficiency services as a key for unlocking potentials of new technologies/services;
  • creating advanced and smart concepts for the modernisation of public lighting;
  • enabling large-scale energy efficiency programs;
  • strengthening the know-how of regional/national key stakeholders.

Specific objectives

  • develop an advanced Smart EPC concept and standardised documentation for integration of energy and non-energy services in EPC;
  • demonstrate replication potential of Smart EPC concept and documentation by piloting reconstruction of public lighting;
  • initiate capacity building, replication, and strong facilitation service of Smart EPC concept and standardised documentation for triggering ESCO market on EU level.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 101031639.

Improvement of energy efficiency through public lighting, a priority in France

The implementation of the Smart EPC project is taking place in a particularly favourable regional and national context in France. With the soaring cost of energy, public lighting, which is one of the main areas of expenditure for local authorities, has been identified as a priority.
