Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) Upcoming Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) Training Opportunities

Just-in-Time Series 5 Webinar: Ensuring ESPC Project Performance After Acceptance
October 25, 2018, 1 - 3:30 p.m. EDT

ESPCs are long-term contracts that often face a number of changes during the performance period such as turnover in personnel and contract modifications. These changes could challenge the federal agency’s ability to perform appropriate ESPC administration after the project is installed and accepted.

The Just-in-Time Series 5 webinar will address the responsibilities of both agency contracting and technical personnel for administering an ESPC task order as well as the energy service company’s (ESCO) responsibilities during the post-acceptance performance period. It will also discuss the types of FEMP assistance available to agencies in managing their responsibilities.

Upon completion of this workshop, attendees will:

  • Understand measurement and verification activities by agency and ESCO;
  • Know how to review measurement and verification reports;
  • Know how to handle savings shortfalls;
  • Be able to resolve contract performance issues;
  • Be able to handle operations and maintenance of energy conservation measures;
  • Be able to develop a contract management plan and;
  • Know how to use FEMP life-of-contract services.

Energy Savings Performance Contracting Three-day Training Workshop
October 30 - November 1, 2018, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. EDT
Nashville, Tennessee

This three-day training workshop provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the ESPC process and how to get started with a project at a site or facility. The training includes exercises on technical and contracting topics that provide students an opportunity to learn by doing. Video case studies offer visual examples of projects at sites and facilities. Each training module contains ESPC best practices for each process.

Registration is open to federal employees, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national labs, and state and local government employees. Others, such as DOE M&O contractors, may be considered on a case-by-case basis. The "Energy Savings Performance Contracts: Five Phases to Success" on-demand course is a prerequisite for attending this training.

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

  • Explain the ESPC authority as a tool for energy and cost savings at federal agencies and why it is a departure from standard contracting;
  • Describe how ESPCs reallocate current spending and how agencies can ensure that their projects are of the highest possible value;
  • Describe the project planning activities that will set the stage for a successful ESPC project, including the acquisition team’s critical roles and responsibilities;
  • Understand types of reliability and resilience measures that can be included in ESPCs and start a project with a notice of opportunity;
  • Describe why an agency needs measurement and verification (M&V) and why there is so much focus on M&V;
  • Discuss how ESPC projects are financed and what constitutes a good deal for the government;
  • Understand ESPC project acceptance and implementation/construction process;
  • Learn how to manage transitions from pre-award to post-award; and
