Energy Improvements and Alternative Funding Options
Tuesday, May 1, 2018 – 3:00 – 4:30 pm
Learn how DOE’s successful Federal Energy Management Program can finance energy saving initiatives without up-front capital costs. Benefits to NSF major facilities include up-front funding without additional appropriations, guaranteed cost savings and performance, and freeing up money for science. NSF major facility case studies will be discussed, including examples funded via NSF Research and Related Activity funding for facility Operations and Maintenance versus DOE’s Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs).
