The objective of the EnPC-INTRANS is to develop local capacities of the public sector at the level of municipalities to set up and use EnPC models for financing of their investments in EE improvements of public municipalities and services. EnPC-INTRANS capacity building concepts and tools are jointly developed on the basis of stakeholder consultations, cooperation, and international exchange of concepts, ideas, and experience. Training concepts and tools are implemented and demonstrated in the partners’ countries and presented for further dissemination and replication to experts and stakeholders in all EU28 member states. Available at the project website:  1. EPC Contract guidance note and model contract 2. Training material. Best practices of the tool can be found at :http://www.enpc-intrans.eu/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/EnPC-INTRANS-Best-Practices-in-EPC-for-public-buidlings.pdf.

EnPC-INTRANS training concepts and materials are available for free download in 10 different languages for the training of experts and stakeholders in EU member states.
