The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Our scientific work supports a whole host of EU policies in a variety of areas from agriculture and food security, to environment and climate change, as well as nuclear safety and security and innovation and growth.
Our research topics give a deeper insight into that support of EU policy, while you can also discover the unique laboratories and facilities where our scientists work.
Our news gives you an insight into our support of EU policy and highlights the scientific research carried out everyday within the European Commission.
You can also sign up for our monthly newsletter for all the latest information directly to your inbox and check out our events for opportunities to participate. Or check out our photos and videos for an instant look at the world of science at the European Commission.
Building on its previous reports, investigating the status of the ESCO market in the EU, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) reviewed the efforts made by Member States to stimulate the market of energy services, and in particular the market for EPC, during the period 2014-2016 and the current size of the ESCO market. The findings in this report show new developments since the last report published by the JRC in 2014 for the period 2010-2013.
