July 24th Webinar #3 – The Effective Marriage of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in an ESCO Contract for Municipalities, and Educational and Hospital Campuses: The value of Energy Services Company (ESCO) contracts have been well documented after 30+ years of deployments. Until recently, renewable energy has been too expensive with long paybacks which did not line up with traditional energy conservation measures. However, the recent reduction in cost combined with technological performance advancements makes renewable energy, such as solar PV, desirable in ESCO contracts. Our panel, comprised of industry, finance and government leaders, will break down an actual case study and provide insight on the advantages and pitfalls.
August 7th 1:15 to 3:45 PM ET- Webinar #4 – The Intersection of the Microgrid, Renewable Energy, and Storage: Microgrids save money and increase resiliency and reliability; but how do you achieve a successful, economic deployment and do it using private capital? Our case study is led by industry and academic leaders who have successfully deployed area-wide microgrids.
August 21st 1:15 to 3:45 PM ET- Webinar #5 – Public Private Partnerships (PPP): Using private capital to own and operate systems on government and institutional property is an attractive model for cash-strapped entities that want the benefits of lowering energy use and reducing costs without any upfront capital. Our panel of finance and procurement experts breaks down both a recent successful PPP and a project that did not achieve financing.
September 4th 1:15 to 3:45 PM ET- Webinar #6 – The Leading Edge of New Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Technologies Coming to the Market: Leadership from DOE and other research centers will provide the latest information on where renewable energy technology is headed and the implications for profitable deployment.
September 18th 1:15 to 3:45 PM ET- Webinar #7 – Developing the RFP: Energy efficiency and renewable energy contracting is a new art for many government and institutional entities. Whether a direct purchase or in a third-party owned and operated public private partnership, procuring these highly valuable cost reduction systems requires new ways to navigate legal, regulatory and functional challenges. Our panel of contract and finance experts from federal and state agencies, finance organizations and higher education discuss their RFP process to provide insight into what has worked well and provisions to avoid.
