The landscape for implementing energy efficient projects is rapidly changing. The need for energy project financing has never been greater. The factors influencing energy project financing have been brought about by legislation, oil prices surging past $120 a barrel, and the growing concern for global warming.
In December of 2007, the Energy Independence and Security Act was passed into law. This act promotes energy savings performance contracting in the federal government and provides flexible financing and training of federal contract officers.
The Energy Policy Act of 2005 reauthorizes energy service performance contracting through September 30, 2016.
The purpose of this book is to provide the key success factors for structuring a finance energy project and getting it approved by top management.
The goals of the authors are threefold: First, we want to explore as many financing options as possible.
Second, we want to provide the tools to make a comprehensive financial analysis.
Third, we want to broaden the readers’ horizons with new trends in the industry. There are many correct ways to assemble and finance an energy management project.
The number of possibilities is only limited to one’s creativity. So be flexible and keep searching until you find the “win win” deal for everyone.
