Subcontracting Opportunities with Energy Savings Performance Contractors

green world and business people

On November 7th GSA and DOE will host a special event to help busiensses partner to meet the building performance and subcontracting goals with Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs).

These contracts allow Federal agencies to accomplish energy savings projects without up-front capital costs and without special Congressional appropriations.

An ESPC is a partnership between a Federal agency and an energy service company (ESCO). The ESCO conducts a comprehensive energy audit for the Federal facility and identifies improvements to save energy. In consultation with the Federal agency, the ESCO designs and constructs a project that meets the agency's needs and arranges the necessary funding. The ESCO guarantees that the improvements will generate energy cost savings sufficient to pay for the project over the term of the contract. After the contract ends, all additional cost savings accrue to the agency. Contract terms up to 25 years are allowed. 

The free webinar on the 7th will help small businesses access subcontracting opportunities provided by the ESCO's.  They have asked that the following small business categories to attend:

• professional services
• mechanical and electrical engineering
• Plumbing
•  HVAC
•  Lighting
•  solar photovoltaics
• Controls
• Energy management systems
• Ground source heat pump installation
