EPC+ Newsletter
Number 3, December 2016 
Dear reader,

We are pleased to present you the 3rd newsletter of the EU project "Energy Performance Contracting Plus” (EPC+). 
The goal of the EPC+ project is to reduce transaction costs of energy services so that smaller investments become possible (e.g. in SMEs). This can only happen if both the technical solutions as well as the contractual issues of energy services are standardized. 

The topics of this EPC+ newsletter are:
Workshop EPC+ on the 8th of december 2016 
The City of Antwerp, Alfaport-VOKA and the Port of Antwerp in collaboration with Factor4 will hold a free workshop on Energy Performance Contracts on the 8 th of December in the new Antwerp Port building.
Factor4 introduces EPC relighting contract for SMEs
LED technology is great and promising, but due to inferior product quality of lucrative 'hit and run'-manufacturers, and incorrect pay back and lighting studies, the sector suffers from a bad reputation. Factor4 developed a performance-based contract for SMEs which guarantees product quality, light output and energy consumption, with a contract period of... 0 (zero!) days.
Establishment of SME Partnerships for Innovative Energy Services (SPINs)
12 SPINs have been established by February 2016, with at least one SPIN per EPC+ partner country. Factor4, a Belgian SPIN, implemented a European SPIN called Energy Efficiency Network Europe (EENE).
