This one-hour session will focus on the energy engineer’s role in leveraging energy audits and financing to do more implementation work. Financing can be used as a resource to extend capital budgets, increase payback requirements, and provide off-balance sheet and paid-from-savings options. Audits are the cornerstone of any facility’s energy plan but are underutilized as a vehicle for implementation of efficiency and capital improvement projects. Financing is rarely ever discussed. The presentation will cover the value-proposition and process for engineering firms to incorporate financing as an implementation resource to maximize existing client relationships and get more work for their firm. The presentation will also highlight the importance of client engagement and talking to the right stakeholders when transitioning from audit to implementation services.
