Maximizing the benefits of energy performance contracts
That's the main feature in CEEA's Spring/Summer magazine, along with profiles on energy retrofits and more.
Members penned a number of incisive articles in the second issue of CEEA's Efficiency Matters magazine.
Maximizing the benefits of energy performance contracts is the central feature. Written by board member Genevieve Gauthier, national director of Econoler, the piece discusses the various steps of drafting an EPC, including project scoring, the evaluation criteria of energy service companies (ESCOs), and the measurement and verification of performance in determining payments to be made to ESCOs.
An article on the B.C. firm International Wastewater Systems looks at the technology to convert raw sewage into heat. And CEEA member Ecosystem Energy Services provides profiles on applying a whole-building approach to energy retrofits in Ontario, including a hospital and community housing.
Importantly CEEA Chair Martin Luymes writes on "The Power of Alliances and the Value of CEEA". Luymes relates his experience as director of Programs and Relations at the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI), detailing how his own association uses CEEA. The key takeaway: the relationship allows HRAI to address some issues more effectively by leveraging the benefits of broader-based coalitions. He cites the preservation of the Office of Energy Efficiency as a key success.
