energy conservation is more than money
Energy Conservation is more than Money…
  • 4 Year paybacks are fine on production equipment.
  • This has other aspects:
    • Maintenance
    • Environmental
    • Compliance
    • Goodwill, marketing, PR
  • This is where you have to be a salesperson and sell your product.
hearing this one all the time these days
Hearing this one all the time these days…
  • This is exactly the time to spend money.
    • It takes money to make money
    • This is going to save us X number of dollars on maintenance cost and increase our reliability
    • Energy cost are going up not down in the future
    • The vendors are hungry we are seeing a 20% savings over a few years ago.
  • You’ve got to sell your product to your decision makers!
no money
No Money?
    • Reducing cost by $5,000 is like increasing revenue by $50,000
  • “Every $1 a non-profit healthcare organization saves on energy is equivalent to $20 in new revenues for hospitals or $10 for medical offices.”
  • Source: Energy Star
but if you can t
But if you can’t…
  • Make it easy on them
  • ESCO
slide17
ESCO
  • An ESCO, or energy service company, is a business that develops, installs, and arranges financing for projects designed to improve the energy efficiency and maintenance costs for facilities over a seven to twenty year time period. ESCO’s generally act as project developers for a wide range of tasks and assume the technical and performance risk associated with the project. Typically, they offer the following services:
    • Develop, design, and arrange financing for energy efficiency projects;
    • Install and maintain the energy efficient equipment involved;
    • Measure, monitor, and verify the project's energy savings; and
    • Assume the risk that the project will save the amount of energy guaranteed
so no money no problem
So No Money, No Problem
  • But you may have to think outside the box
3 too risky1
3. Too Risky
  • No one wants to put their institution at risk.
  • But, you guys are in the risk management business.
  • Manage the risk just like all the other projects you tackle.
some thoughts on energy conservation risk management
Some Thoughts on Energy Conservation Risk Management
  • Design it well and think it through in advance
  • Talk to people that have done similar ones
    • See if they had any issues
  • Do a mock up if possible
    • Motion sensors? Test a couple of models in different settings in advance
  • Test it (if possible) on a selective area in advance…
    • An office, A floor
    • Have a plan B
  • Communicate, Communicate, Communicate!
2 i don t know what to do and i m too busy
2. I Don’t Know What to Do and I’m Too Busy
  • You don’t have to!
    • You’re not an energy conservation expert.
  • You can get an expert and you can get him for ½ his cost.
    • The utility will pick up the rest.
work 22 hours a day instead of 20
Work 22 hours a day instead of 20
  • Or add someone to your staff and have the utility pay for them RCM (resource conservation manager)
    • Guarantee they will earn their salary (in energy savings) or utility will pay the difference
    • Can share a guy with another institution
        • 1,000,000 sq feet of Conditioned space
1 no love1
1. No Love
  • An energy conservation project will give you more intrinsic satisfaction than virtually anything else you do in your facility.
  • It will make you look like a hero!
  • It’s the gift that keeps on giving!
1 no one cares
1. No One Cares
  • Bob says:
    • Maybe you’re looking for love in all the wrong places??
  • You gotta make your own love!
    • Publicize what you’ve done!
    • Keep a comprehensive list of all your projects.
        • So the love keeps on coming!
  • Feel the love
    • Company, co workers,
    • Colleagues, utilities,
    • Mother earth, your family
    • And friends

There are no good reasons, just a lot of excuses:

5. The Payback Is Too Long

4. No Money

3. Too Risky
