Webinar: Indeterminate Savings Energy Conservation Measures: Get More Savings from Performance Contracts

May 24, 2023, noon-1:15 pm CDT
Register here.

This training informs attendees about an innovative way to integrate energy conservation measures (ECM) with “indeterminate” savings into energy savings performance contracts (ESPCs) and utility energy service contracts (i.e., ones whose savings aren’t clear from a typical performance contract’s investment-grade audit, or whose savings are likely to vary from year to year). Examples of these ECMs are whole-building re-/retro-commissioning, participation in demand response programs, and behavioral initiatives like ISO 50001.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to:

  • Recognize examples of indeterminate savings ECMs and understand why they rarely appear in PCs despite typically having short simple payback periods.
  • Identify the advocated contractual techniques to incorporate these ECMs in PCs and the key issues to raise with agency legal and contracting colleagues.
  • Identify the generally accepted rules around the use of reserve accounts.
