Webinar: FEMP: ESPC Comprehensive Training

FEMP: ESPC Comprehensive Training

Webinar
Tuesday, April 6, 2021
1:00 pm to 4:30 pm
EST

This three-day webinar will educate attendees about how to implement energy and water projects through an energy savings performance contract (ESPC). The workshop will offer a basic introduction to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) IDIQ contracts and how to get started with an ESPC project at your site. Training sessions cover task order ordering procedures, contractor selection, energy saving technologies, risk and responsibility, measurement and verification (M&V), understanding task order schedules, pricing and financing aspects of the project, and post award contract administration.

Breakout sessions focusing on technical and contracting topics will provide attendees with an opportunity to learn by doing. Whether you are at the beginning of acquisition planning and considering the ESPC approach or are already underway with a project, this webinar will provide a comprehensive understanding of the ESPC process. The webinar is sponsored by DOE's Federal Energy Mangement Program (FEMP) and will be taught by experts in the field of alternatively financed contracts including federal contracting officers (retired and active), federal project executives, DOE national laboratory experts, and other consultants with extensive background in ESPCs. Students will interact with instructors who are experts in contracting and the technical aspects of project development.

Speakers:

  • Tom Hattery, Federal Project Executive, U.S. Department of Energy  
  • Kurmit Rockwell, PE, CEM, LEED AP, U.S. Department of Energy Federal Energy Management Program  
  • Eusebio M. (Sam) Espinosa, Retired Federal Contracting Officer, Boston Government Services  
  • Christine E. Walker, PhD, PE, CEM, LEED AP, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Webinar: How to Make Your Data Center Better: Stories from the Field

How to Make Your Data Center Better: Stories from the Field

Webinar
Tuesday, April 6, 2021 3:00 pm EST
Sector: Data Centers

Gain insight into energy efficiency from organizations that have prioritized their data centers as an opportunity for savings. As organizations increasingly rely on data centers as mission critical operations, energy efficiency offers opportunities to make meaningful reductions in overall operating costs. These opportunities, experiences implementing projects, and lessons learned may vary across different data center types, whether they be small, co-location, or enterprise. In this webinar, attendees heard from Better Buildings partners about their experiences implementing energy efficiency projects within each of these data center types. Learn how you can leverage energy efficiency to streamline operations, cut operating costs, and increase data center resiliency.

Webinar: HIT Catalyst Stakeholder Workshop (2/6)

HIT Catalyst Stakeholder Workshop (2/6)

Webinar
Thursday, April 8, 2021
2:30 pm to 3:30 pm
EST

What are the technologies of the future that will make commercial buildings more energy-efficient and climate-friendly? The Department of Energy’s Building Technologies Office Commercial Building Integration team (CBI) wants to hear from you as we review 2021’s most promising, market-ready, energy efficient commercial building technologies.

CBI is hosting a series of discussions to collect feedback and comments on a prioritized set of cost-effective, underutilized, deployment-ready, energy-efficient technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and will support our market transformation programs. Each year we invite participation from federal technology managers, renewable energy/ energy efficiency organizations, utilities, local governments, and industry and non-governmental organizations. This year, we specifically request feedback and participation from diverse and underrepresented populations.

If you think you may have contributions help guide CBI’s prioritization of commercial building technologies, join us for a HIT Catalyst Stakeholder Workshop!

Dates and Times:

  • Tuesday, March 30, 1:00-2:00 ET
  • Thursday, April 8, 2:30-3:30 ET
