  • FPCC Supports Bipartisan Infrastructure Plan to Reduce Emissions in Federal Facilities

    The FPCC supports the bipartisan infrastructure plan led by Chairman Manchin that prioritizes energy efficiency in the federal government and funds programs that smartly leverage public-private partnerships to achieve resiliency and emissions reductions in federal facilities. We are particularly pleased to see the substantial funding for the AFFECT grant program. The FPCC released the following statement.


    “The FPCC supports the energy provisions included in Chariman Manchin’s bipartisan infrastructure package, specifically, the funding for the AFFECT Grant program, which allows agencies to execute deep energy retrofits, and address resiliency and emissions reductions while relying primarily on the energy savings provided by performance contracting. We expect that the $250 Million included in the proposal will enable over $1.5 Billion of investment in our federal facilities, making them more sustainable and resilient, while simultaneously reducing substantial backlog maintenance.” Jennifer Schafer, FPCC Executive Director.


    In an Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) or Utility Energy Savings Contract (UESC), the private sector works with the government customer to develop a project, but then the private company implements that project, and measures and verifies savings every year. In an ESPC, the energy service company guarantees that the savings willaccrue. The private sector is repaid out of these guaranteed utility bill savings allowing for no added expenditures by the federal government. Since inception, ESPCs have achieved over $20 billion in guaranteed energy savings across the federal government.

    Using energy savings performance contracting (ESPC) in conjunction with incremental appropriated funding to implement comprehensive renovation of our nation’s veteran’s hospitals, military installations and other federal buildings will let our dollars go further while ensuring the positive results from project investment last for years through rigorous operations and maintenance.
