Attendees will have an interactive discussion with key stakeholders from federal agencies, industry, finance, and utilities who have implemented projects that delivered energy reduction, new infrastructure and improved resiliency. Panelists will share lessons learned from their experiences on completed projects with clarity and candor. Explore the sessions below:
ESPC Best Practices and Lessons Learned
Date: Tuesday, August 15, 10:30am – 12:00pm
Description: Key stakeholders from the energy service companies, finance, industry, and agencies will discuss their journey from planning the energy savings performance contract (ESPC) to project closeout. This interactive discussion will include the detailed audit process, the final project scope of work, the plan for performance assurance, and construction. Attendees will gain an understanding of the ESPC process from people who have executed a contract.
Campus Resilience Case Study
Date: Tuesday, August 15, 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Description: Attendees will learn about the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) experience incorporating resilience into operations at two sites. The first presenter will explore the lessons learned at Los Alamos National Laboratory, which is managing the complex water resources on the Pajarito Plateau, as well as future energy needs, in order to ensure mission security in the coming years. The next two presenters will discuss DOE’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve, which recently completed a vulnerability assessment that examined the resilience of critical resources like water, power, and its command and control system.
Renewable Energy Case Study
Date: Tuesday, August 15, 4:00pm – 5:30pm
Description: The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) will highlight its project to convert waste products from a nearby industrial process to power electrical requirements throughout the Marine Corps Logistic Base, Albany, Georgia. The USMC contractor team will explain the scope and contracting authorities and how they were combined to complete this innovative project.
UESC Best Practices and Lessons Learned
Date: Wednesday, August 16, 8:30am – 10:00am
Description: Key stakeholders from utilities, finance, industry, and agencies will discuss their journey from planning the utility energy service contract (UESC) to project closeout. This interactive discussion will include the detailed audit process, the final project scope of work, the plan for performance assurance, and construction. Attendees will gain an understanding of the UESC process from people who have executed a contract.
Net Zero Case Studies
Date: Wednesday, August 16, 10:30am – 12:00pm
Description: This session will highlight net zero energy, water and waste projects. The first presentation will discuss the Air Force Special Operations Command at Hurlburt Field, Florida, which has shown great leadership with cutting-edge research, development, and deployment. The second presentation will cover the net zero energy project for the Aviation Support Battalion Hanger at Fort Carson. The third will explore the 9th Mission Support Command’s net zero energy efforts in Maui, net zero water efforts at Fort Buchanan, and Fort Hunter Liggett’s progress towards net zero waste.
Water Efficiency Project Case Studies
Date: Wednesday, August 16, 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Description: Session attendees will be able to see advanced water project case studies, including design documents and pre-existing images combined with post-installation images. We will also detail savings and payback ranges for the project.
Utility Partnerships Helping the Agency Meet Strategic Goals
Date: Wednesday, August 16, 4:00pm – 5:30pm
Description: The U.S. Department of the Navy and partner utilities will highlight two innovative partnerships that are improving installation energy resilience and contributing to energy goals. Highlights of projects at the Marine Corps Air Station Yuma and Naval Submarine Base New London will illustrate the possibilities when federal agencies partner with their servicing utilities.
Historical Building Project Case Studies
Date: Thursday, August 17, 8:30am – 9:30am
Description: The General Service Administration will present two case studies on historical building retrofits. The first is a project to convert a 93-year-old building in Grand Junction, Colorado, into a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum and Net Zero office building. The project will preserve the building’s historic character, while transforming the structure into one of the most efficient, sustainable historic buildings in the country. The second project focuses on an energy savings performance contract for four federal buildings in Washington, D.C., including the historic William Jefferson Clinton Federal Building.
Financing: How to Get It Done
Date: Thursday, August 17, 9:45am – 11:15am
Description: Key thought leaders from finance, industry, and federal agencies will discuss how unique financing solutions delivered results and how they are applicable throughout the federal government. The presenters will discuss energy savings performance contracts, utility energy service contracts, energy service agreements, enhanced use leases, and power purchase agreements and how they have been utilized independently and in combination to deliver energy efficiency, renewable energy, and infrastructure to federal agencies.
