The Water/Energy Nexus: Utilizing Energy Performance Contracting

This event qualifies for 1.5 ENG

For over 30 years, energy performance contracting (EPC) also known as ESCO and energy savings performance contracting has assisted municipalities, state and federal entities with financing improvements to infrastructure. Have you been asked to reduce energy operating costs or support sustainability efforts for your entity? Are you or your organization tracking greenhouse gases or concerned about climate change? Are energy costs increasing but budgets for capital maintenance or replacement decreasing? Do you have mandates that are not adequately funded in these areas, such as implementing renewable energy? Is your organization positioned or positioning to assist with these issues? Questions, issues and concerns such as these are increasingly common yet conventional approaches to funding projects may not be adequate or may not exist at all. This live audio conference helps those people responsible for achieving the above objectives understand the basics of EPC as a means to assist in finance and delivery. With support even reaching to the President of the United States and the head of the U.S. Department of Energy, EPC provides an attractive design build turnkey option that defers payments until savings are realized. As with any endeavor, understanding the rules of the game is critical. This presentation will present the basics of EPC, followed by who should be involved and how the process works. Then, leveraging lessons learned and understanding sources of uncertainty inherent in all projects are discussed, these being critical to having a successful project and managing expectations of numerous stakeholders. This audio conference is valuable to understanding and the basics of entry into the EPC world of finance and delivery.
