Energy Performance Consulting

Your facilities (much like your people) need a lot of energy to keep running. As time goes on, buildings and their systems age, facility usage changes, and technology continually improves. The need to keep up creates opportunities to replace equipment and systems while reducing your energy bills and using energy savings to fund the upgrades.

What is an ESCO and what’s the benefit?

The Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) industry has spawned from this opportunity. Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs) fund capital projects by realizing their associated energy savings over the life of the project, providing an alternative funding strategy and creating a funding mechanism through energy savings. Most importantly, they can be structured so there are no up-front consulting fees as these can be funded through the energy savings.

Evaluating your options

Evaluating and understanding these programs, their structures, and the financial models can be intimidating, time consuming, and confusing. How do you start to evaluate your options and decide which improvements will have the most impact?

Considering an Energy Service Contract?

The following is a sample list of questions you should ask before entering into an energy performance contract. We can provide further assistance in evaluating whether an ESPC is a viable option for your organization.

  • What potential projects exist? What is the range of savings, and will it fund my project(s)?
  • Do I need to prepare an RFP for the project?
  • How will I evaluate and select the “right” ESCO?
  • Do I feel comfortable allowing the ESCO to drive the project?
  • Do I have the internal expertise to manage my risk?
