This three-day workshop educates attendees on how to implement energy and water projects through an energy savings performance contract (ESPC). While each day is a stand-alone course, learners are encouraged to attend all three days as able.
Day 1 of the workshop consists of a basic introduction to the Department of Energy IDIQ contracts and how to get started with an ESPC project at your site. Training sessions cover ESPC authority, new laws and requirements, acquisition planning, allowable funding sources, energy saving technologies to reduce energy consumption, electrify as appropriate and minimize GHG emissions, resilience to achieve mission readiness, authorized contractor selection processes, and using the preliminary assessment as a scoping document. ESPC phases 1 and 2 will be the focus of Day 1. Whether you are at the beginning of acquisition planning and considering the ESPC approach or are already underway with a project, this workshop will provide a comprehensive understanding of the ESPC process.
The workshop is sponsored by DOE/FEMP and is taught by experts in the field of performance contracting experts including a federal contracting officer, FEMP Federal Project Executive, DOE national laboratory experts, and other consultants with extensive background in ESPCs. Registration is open to federal employees, DOE National Labs, and state and local government employees. Others will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
This curriculum offers courses related to financing the implementation of energy and water efficiency projects. These courses help to pair available project financing options with specific project situations in an effort to prevent stalled, unfunded projects.
