Benefit from our guaranteed performance for Your Next Energy Savings Project
Ecosave Efficiency has developed a unique and robust model for delivering energy and water efficiency projects – the Guaranteed Energy Savings Project (GESP). The model extends and improves upon the standard ‘audit and install’ approach, to create a fully integrated, end-to-end service backed by a performance based contract. Ecosave will manage the upgrade from start to finish and guarantee the implementation of energy conservation measures (ECMs) and savings – features usually only found in large scale Energy Performance Contracts. Each energy savings project designed by Ecosave comes with guaranteed energy savings as standard and incorporates a range of ECMs.
How the GESP works
The Ecosave GESP combines a number of professional services into a single end-to-end performance based service model. Ecosave works with you to identify your objectives, business requirements and scope of works. We then develop a packaged solution of energy conservation measures in a fixed price proposal. The entire process is integrated and managed by a single point of contact at Ecosave. Our energy savings project design and savings guarantee is underscored by a detailed assessment of your facilities to establish baseline building performance and energy load profile. We then follow with implementation, measurement and verification and prepare an actual savings report.
Efficiency Opportunity Assessment
Ecosave conducts holistic energy and water savings opportunity assessments. Our engineers investigate all options for reducing consumption, carry out detailed designs, calculations and costing to provide the client with the most savings within the agreed financial parameters. More
Fixed Price Proposal
The price stated in our Proposal is capped and any unforeseen price variations that are reasonably within the control of Ecosave will be absorbed by Ecosave.
If our proposal presents a good business case and the client proceeds with the project, they enter into a GESP Agreement with Ecosave. The proposal then becomes the project scope of work.
The GESP agreement is a performance based service agreement, whereby the energy savings as defined by the scope of works are guaranteed.
To begin the project we hold a kick-off meeting with site staff, talking through the scope and agreeing on a schedule that suits your business. We start on site with a Pre-installation inspection to take stock of any changes in the site since we conducted the initial assessments, and conduct workplace risk assessments. Ecosave will then confirm the scope, engage subcontractors, purchase the equipment and manage the installation from start to finish. Staff are inducted in the site’s OH&S program, submit their safety plans and work begins.
Installations are commissioned to ensure they operate as designed on site, maximising efficiencies. Operational and Maintenance manuals will be provided with training to the site’s facilities and maintenance teams to help them operate the equipment as intended and maintain savings.
Measurement & Verification
Ecosave will conduct measurement and verification (M&V) on each solution installed to ensure and demonstrate that the savings are being achieved. We use the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) to measure and verify savings, so you can be assured of sound methodology. This often involves data logging of equipment before and after the works.
Actual Savings Report
At project end the client will receive an Actual Savings Report that demonstrates the savings achieved, based on before and after measurements of consumption conducted during M&V. Here the savings guarantee comes into effect.
We offer a complete range of energy conservation measures in your energy savings project:
- High efficiency LED Lighting upgrades (all types)
