Overview of Energy Savings Performance Contracts


Energy savings performance contracts (ESPCs) are partnerships between energy services companies (ESCOs) and their customers for the purpose of financing and implementing cost-saving energy efficiency improvements. An ESCO’s principal service under an ESPC is the development, design, engineering, and installation of projects that reduce the energy and operations and maintenance (O&M) costs of customers’ facilities. These projects typically include a variety of measures customized for the facility and designed to improve the efficiency of major building systems, such as heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and lighting systems.
