Overview

As the trend for obtaining funds for energy projects moves away from utility rebate programs and toward other types of financing alternatives, there is a growing need for guidance as to what options are now available, how to assess project payback in advance, how to anticipate and avoid potential risks and/or hidden costs, and how to assure, generally, that your project is an economic success. This book was written expressly to provide such guidance. The full scope of current project financing practices are fully examined. You'll gain a clear understanding of what performance contracting is, how it works, and how to assure that you get what you pay for. A full chapter is devoted to presentation of state-of-the-art measurement and verification methods applicable to assess savings achieved from energy projects. You'll learn how to perform a rate of return analysis, as well as an overall financial analysis of a project. Also included are helpful tips to help you work effectively with lenders, and case histories detailing energy project financing success stories.
