To achieve decarbonization and other federal goals, it is increasingly critical for agencies to consider the value of Utility Energy Service Contracts (UESCs) as a tool for upgrading energy and water infrastructure and installing on-site carbon pollution-free projects, with little to no upfront costs. This two-day workshop will help attendees understand the fundamental elements of a UESC and how these limited-source performance contracts can be used to maximize investment into energy and water conservation measures. FEMP and experts from DOE's national labs will present best practices aimed at assisting agency staff, utilities, and ESCOs in the successful development of UESCs, including topics such as acquisition planning, contractor selection, site assessments, proposal review, and performance assurance.
This is a follow-on comprehensive training immediately following FUPWG.
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.
