FEMP's Utility Project Workshop Coming to Philadelphia and Chicago

April 30, 2003

Are you interested in seeing how your facility can benefit from energy and water efficiency improvement services that may be offered by utilities that serve your facility? If so, then make plans to attend FEMP's Utility Energy Services Contracting (UESC) Project Workshops and learn a step-by-step approach to implementing efficiency and renewable projects through Federal agency and utility partnerships.

These workshops provide attendees with an overview of the contracting options and services available from local utility companies that offer engineering, financing, and installation of cost effective energy and water savings projects. Participants walk through the typical project process, from the audit phase to commissioning equipment. Upon completing this workshop, participants will have the contracting and technical knowledge to begin a project at their facility. This innovative alternative financing opportunity provides a mechanism to help solve facility problems and meet program objectives and goals.

Who should attend? Federal project implementation teams including facility and energy managers, engineering and legal staff, and procurement and contracting officials are strongly encouraged to attend. Priority will be given to Federal personnel. However, state and local government customers are welcome! Upcoming workshops are scheduled for:

  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – May 28–29, 2003; and
  • Chicago, Illinois – September 16–17, 2003.

Take advantage of this opportunity to ask the experts! Attendees are encouraged to bring information about their specific energy and water efficiency and renewable energy projects for workshop exercises and to get input from the workshop instructors.

The registration fee is waived for these workshops. For more information about FEMP's 2003 workshops or to register by phone, please call the FEMP Workshop Hotline at 703-243-8343.
