While arguments for the necessity and benefits of renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions are now in place, financing and confidence in their performance and associated financial paybacks remain two of the largest hurdles to widespread adoption. Though governments have intervened to provide large amounts of development and project financing, the balance of funds necessary to deploy these solutions will ultimately have to come from private sector sources. The ESCO financing model has the potential to hasten their deployment by enabling customers to more confidently invest based on an assured level of performance.
Cleantech Approach works with ESCOs in their deployment decisions.
- Technology and vendor expertise to meet technical requirements. Our deep knowledge of the range of technologies, companies, and products enables us to identify appropriate solutions for achieving clients’ technical requirements.
- Rigorous return and payback analysis. Our proprietary financial analysis allows us to comprehensively analyze the investment case (costs, savings, and payback) for the underlying the proposed energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions.
- Policy context. Finally, our relationships with municipalities and knowledge of existing and anticipated policy frameworks (i.e., stricter building energy codes and investment subsidies) allow us to navigate the complex incentive alignment issues associated with the their deployment.
Examples of services provided to our ESCO clients include technology evaluation, investment analysis, vendor and product selection, and policy research.
