The General Services Administration (GSA), Office of Federal High Performance Green Buildings (OFHPGB) and the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) have launched an effort to enhance and increase the usage of Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs) on GSA buildings. Rocky Mountain Institute and GSA convened a workshop in 2011 in order to examine the existing ESPC structure and process, and identify improvements to unlock the possibility of deep savings and eventual net zero ESPCs. Attendees examined ways to modify and expand the ESPC process to attain deeper energy savings during comprehensive retrofits of existing buildings. This report summarizes the discussion in and outcomes of the workshop. Read our 2013 GSA Charrette Report here.
