Energy Savings Performance Contracting (ESPC) is a budget-neutral approach to make building improvements that reduce energy and water use and increase operational efficiency. By partnering with an energy service company (ESCO), a facility owner can use an ESPC to pay for today's facility upgrades with tomorrow's energy savings without tapping into capital budgets. State and local governments can implement ESPC projects in their own facilities, as well as promote and support ESPC projects through ESPC programs.

Foundations of Energy Savings Performance Contracting in Missouri

The department, in partnership with the National Association of State Energy Officials and the Energy Services Coalition, co-hosted this webinar on June 29, 2022. Energy savings performance contracting offers an opportunity to finance energy efficiency investments by leveraging the operational cost savings that projects achieve over time. The webinar provided an overview of the process in Missouri. Energy savings performance contracting has helped organizations significantly reduce energy and operating costs and make progress toward sustainability goals. State and municipal buildings, colleges and universities, K-12 schools and hospitals are well-suited for these investments.
