The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) will present a webcast on Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs) on Thursday, March 3, 2011.

If you are a Federal energy professional and have heard about ESPCs – but thought they were too complex or beyond your reach - tune in for a comprehensive introduction. This training will show you how easy it can be to get started, and how FEMP resources can keep you on track.

The training includes guidance on:

  • Learning how ESPCs can help fund major energy and facility improvement projects at your site.
  • Understanding the benefits and potential results of ESPC contracts and building a team to support your efforts.
  • Identifying the key steps for screening projects as the best candidates for an ESPC.
  • Evaluating energy conservation measures (ECMs) and determining the best candidates for a successful ESPC.
  • Locating FEMP financing specialists and project facilitators in your region to answer questions and provide up-to-date guidance.

The 90-minute training is free of charge, but you must register in advance to obtain an Internet URL for the presentation. The broadcast will take place Thursday, March 3, 2011, from 1:30 to 3:00 Eastern Time and is titled, “Energy Savings Performance Contracts.”
