The PPESCO Process

Savings Modeling

Well-modeled energy savings result in reliable projections of cost savings and help manage client expectations and repayment of project debt.

Energy and cost savings are the fuel that powers PPESCO investment in energy improvements for building owners.

The audit will identify energy performance improvement opportunities and should be based on computer modeling. Many good tools exist, and the “best” tool is the one most familiar to the auditing staff. Some computer modeling tools are available online at no charge. One example is eQUEST.

Model results inform the estimation of financial savings and impact, which can be done with the Project Financial Analysis Tool (PFAT). This tool can be downloaded from the Resources Page. These in turn provide the basis for the EPC and financing package.
