The U.S. Department of Energy Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) will present Energy Performance Contracting: Tools for Success, a First Thursday Update webinar, on March 2, 2017, from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Eastern time.

This First Thursday Update introduces cutting-edge, web-based tools and user-friendly software that make matching project financing options–including energy savings performance contracts, utility energy service contracts, and renewable energy procurement—with energy and water-conservation opportunities easier and more efficient.

In collaboration with other federal agencies, FEMP makes open-access tools available at no charge—including templates, software, calculators, relational data sets, and databases for powerful applications and results. Learn how FEMP's tools can help teams implement projects that minimize staff effort and maximize quality.

Webinar registrants will learn to:

  • Select energy service companies (ESCO) effectively using ESCO Selector
  • Efficiently manage and track project data using eProject Builder
  • Calculate rate escalation accurately using Energy Escalation Rate Calculator.

The instructors for this First Thursday Update are Kurmit Rockwell, U.S. Department of Energy FEMP; Thomas Hattery, Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Elizabeth Stewart, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; and Phil Coleman, Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory.

After completing a course evaluation, participants will receive a certificate of completion for this unaccredited webinar. Continuing education units are not available for First Thursday Updates.

FEMP First Thursday Updates are designed for federal energy and facility managers but are open to all individuals on the FEMP Training Catalog.
