The purpose of the Energy Assessment (EA) is to assist the client in identifying and developing energy investment initiatives for its facilities. A listing of those facilities involved in this EA is included as Attachment #1, with a brief description of the current information available regarding any previous energy conservation initiatives and/or assessments that the successful contractor may use, but has the responsibility to verify its correctness. In order to develop energy investment initiatives, The Client needs to; 1) evaluate its current energy consumption and commodity purchasing practices and applicable tariffs; 2) develop status quo energy consumption and cost baselines based upon best practices and applicable tariff rates; and 3) develop investment initiatives(s) for moving The Client facilities from its baseline to a state of improved energy consumption and cost effectiveness. The EA, via an in-depth energy audit of The Client facilities, will serve as the investment tool used for the identification of energy deficiencies/needs, potential energy conservation and cost saving opportunities.
The Client is requesting verification of the consumption and commodity analysis information, making modifications if necessary to establish a status quo baseline. The Client requires the development of a status quo baseline based upon industry best practices and recommended changes to tariff rates, if applicable. The Client is seeking short and long-term commodity acquisition and energy investment strategy plans with clear analysis, recommendations and implementation plans. These plans will recommend energy investment strategies for the accomplishment of the energy deficiencies/needs, potential energy conservation and cost savings opportunities as identified through the EA. Following The Client review and selection of potential investment initiatives, a more detailed evaluation of identified energy conservation initiatives and technical site data packages will be prepared and incorporated with a competitive procurement specification, which will be in conformance with all federal practices and standards, for a future solicitation to energy investment firms or contractors who will implement and accomplish the investments initiatives.
As a requirement of this statement of Work, The Client Energy Assessment shall comply with all applicable requirements of Federal law, and regulations, building codes; The Client self-established requirements and agreements with other departments, industry, and/or organizations; and with the state, local or territorial environmental laws and regulations properly applicable to state and local entities. Environmental requirements may encompass issues related to restoration, remediation of contaminated sites, pollution prevention, water an air management, energy conservation efficiency management, and protection of cultural and natural resources.
