The Department of Energy (DOE), Washington, D.C., recently announced the award of 16 new Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs) that could result in up to $80 billion in energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water conservation projects at federally owned buildings and facilities.

The new contracts provide for a maximum individual contract value of $5 billion over the life of the contract, eliminate technology specific restrictions, and allow federal agencies to use these contracts in federal buildings, nationally and internationally. In addition, ESPCs now include a greater emphasis on renewable energy and water conservation projects.

“This set of awards will ensure that federal agencies have access to powerful tools for alternative financing at a scale that is needed to meet our challenge of reducing energy intensity, increasing the use of renewable energy, and decreasing water consumption,” says Samuel W. Bodman, U.S. DOE secretary.
