January Lunch Meeting

January 15, 2015 - 11:30 - 1:00
Indian Tree Golf Course, 7555 Wadsworth Blvd, Arvada, CO

The Environmental Defense Fund developed the Investor Confidence Project (ICP), which is implementing a system to standardize Commercial and Multifamily energy efficiency projects from single measure to whole building retrofits, and provide a standard system to credential projects that are documented and meet this standard method as Investor Ready Energy EfficiencyTM projects.The ICP houses a series of sector-specific Energy Performance Protocols (EPP) and project development resources that define engineering best practice while balancing cost-effectiveness for energy efficiency projects, providing stable, predictable and reliable savings outcomes that enable greater private investment through a more efficient and transparent marketplace.  

This system is supported by hundreds of energy finance companies, banks, project developers, engineering firms, programs, and utilities.  Programs leveraging ICP include Commercial PACE Programs in California, Texas, and Connecticut, as we well as a host of state, local, and utility programs. ICP is developing protocols for both the North American and European markets.

This presentation describes how to leverage ICP’s six Energy Performance Protocols and project development resources that address commercial and multifamily energy efficiency project development. It details the elements, procedures and documentation required of a sound retrofit project, from single energy conservation to multi-million dollar investment, addressing the key components of project development, including: baselining; savings calculations; design, construction and operational performance verification; operations, maintenance and monitoring; and measurement and verification.

ICP creates a path for Project Developers to bring projects to market, creating substantial value for energy engineers, and defines a role for third party quality assurance. The protocols and resources are designed to reduce transaction costs while increasing the reliability and consistency of savings through standardization, best practices, and quality management.
