As of September 2012, we have facilitated 45 energy savings performance contracts awarded under the Department of Energy’s ESPC program, with $609 million in ESCO investment and $77.4 million in annual savings. We have performed over 600 audits for our federal and commercial customers, and saved $4 million in reduced project costs for our customers through application of our detailed review process. For the last 16 years, our customers value the relationship with EMP2’s staff of qualified professionals not only in terms of financial value, but also our dedication to a successful project and customer satisfaction.
EMP2 has reviewed over 81 Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) Measurement and Verification (M&V) plans for various federal agencies covering a wide range of energy conservation measures (ECMs), from lighting to wind turbines. This work requires proficiency in the following categories: basic architecture, varied data collection methods, HVAC and integrated controls, energy modeling and simulation, lighting, commissioning, cost estimation, utility data analysis, renewable energy technology, and onsite energy production.
EMP2 has been a technical service provider for PacifiCorp/Rocky Mountain Power for the last 13 years. We have performed over 600 energy audits for the purpose of developing ECMs that will save energy while maintaining building process functionality. We work with PacifiCorp customers from start to finish. Every implemented measure recommended by EMP2, it must also be commissioned and measured for four to six weeks to verify savings.
Additionally, EMP2 has participated in several renewable generated power projects, both within ESPCs and as standalone projects. These projects include wind, photovoltaic, and biomass generation methods. EMP2 has successfully written Purchase Power Agreements, assisted in power grid engineering assessments that allow connectivity to the regional grid and negotiated energy sale prices to the regional grid. EMP2 staff has evaluated the technical aspects, cost estimates, available utility and tax incentives and supported agency evaluations on environmental issues. EMP2 has facilitated resolution of project location issues and have analyzed project financial data determining the total affect of project implementation upon the agency.
EMP2 has over 16 years experience in management and project facilitation of multiple ESPC projects for DOE, the development of numerous UESCs with BPA, Pacific Power, State of Washington, and several local Utilities. These projects include project development, specifying equipment, energy savings analysis, commissioning, and M&V. In total, over 300 projects have been successfully implemented.
EMP2 staff and subcontractors maintain a high degree of diversity and expertise. The staff is comprised of specialists with varied mechanical and electrical engineering backgrounds that are able to meet the full needs of our customers.
These backgrounds include process controls, process engineering, project management, LEED AP, professional engineers, pumping specialists, boiler and combined power experience, eQuest (DOE2) model experts, lighting and VFD specialists, commissioning and M&V specialists.
"I want to acknowledge the outstanding support that Mr. Frank, EMP2, has provided as our ESPC Project Facilitator (PF). His expert advice and guidance has been invaluable. Being the first of its kind, this project has had many challenges. EMP2 consistently applied the right mix of patience and persistence to keep us on track throughout the process. The PF is a key player on this team. It is a pleasure working with him."
