ESPC ENABLE Energy Service Company Options
Become an ESPC ENABLE Program ESCO
These resources offer information related to becoming an ESPC ENABLE program ESCO:
Projects conducted with the Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) ENABLE procurement process use one of two options to secure a qualified energy service company (ESCO) to design and install energy conservation measures under an ESPC.
The two ESCO options for an ESPC ENABLE project are:
- General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedule 84, SIN 246-53
- Site-specific approach using a Department of Energy (DOE)-qualified ESCO.
ESCOs perform the investment grade audit, secure funding, install equipment, and ultimately guarantee savings and performance.
GSA Federal Supply Schedule 84 (SIN 246-53)
GSA offers multiple award schedules to Federal customers to procure a variety of goods and services in an efficient manner. GSA Federal Supply Schedule 84, SIN 246-53, contains a project financing offering that includes the ESPC ENABLE process.
FEMP will provide project assistance to Federal customers during the pilot phase of the project to help agencies understand how to implement ESPC ENABLE projects.
FEMP maintains a qualifications process for ESCOs interested in offering ESPC services. Federal agencies have the option to execute an ESPC through an open procurement/site-specific approach and may do the same for ESPC ENABLE projects.
Information for ESCOs
FEMP recently hosted a webinar titled ESPC ENABLE Webinar for ESCOs that covered the necessary steps ESCOs should take to become DOE Qualified and get on GSA Schedule 84, SIN 246-53. The PowerPoint presentation used during the webinar and a log of the Q&A session are provided below:
