Energy Improvements and Alternative Funding Options
Participants learned how DOE’s successful Federal Energy Management Program can finance energy-saving initiatives without up-front capital costs. Benefits to NSF major facilities included up-front funding without additional appropriations, guaranteed cost savings and performance, and freeing up money for science. NSF major facility case studies were discussed, including examples funded via NSF Research and Related Activity funding for facility Operations and Maintenance versus DOE’s Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs).
