Funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Programme for Research and Innovation, EPC+ is a project aimed to reduce transaction costs of energy service packages drastically so that smaller investments and projects in SMEs become possible for companies offering energy services. The major outputs of the project include the development of commercial, standardized energy service packages for SMEs, the implementation of pilot projects for the EPC+ packages and the set-up and management of clusters of companies (SPINS). Finally, EPC+ aims to develop an international e-market for energy service providers. www.epcplus.org
