Mark Your Calendar for FEMP's Utility Project Workshops

November 1, 2002

See how your facility can benefit from energy and water efficiency improvement services that may be offered by utilities that serve your facility. Make plans to attend FEMP's Utility Energy Services Contracting Project Workshops and learn a step-by-step approach to implementing efficiency and renewable projects through Federal agency and utility partnerships.

The 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:

  • Tampa, Florida—November 18, 2002 in conjunction with the Federal Utility Partnership Working Group meeting;
  • Brooklyn, New York—May 28-29, 2003; and
  • Chicago, Illinois—September 16-17, 2003.

Take advantage of this opportunity to talk to 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 the Tampa workshop, or to register, please call Judy Powers of NREL at 303-384-7407. For more information about the 2003 workshops, please call the FEMP Workshop Hotline at 703-243-8343.
