Leveraging Efficiency Gains to Finance Infrastructure Upgrades
Facility infrastructure assets such as building envelope, mechanical, and electrical systems require on-going maintenance and periodic, systemic replacement. These systems provide expected services such as heat, light, power, air-conditioning, and protection from the elements, not sell-able, customer attracting assets- often leading to deferred maintenance/deferred replacement. Equipment age/wear, technology break-through, and deferred maintenance lead to significant higher-than-necessary operating costs. This presentation will identify the options for financing infrastructure upgrades with zero out-of-pocket owner costs, how to generate savings that will exceed the payments, and how to package projects for favorable finance considerations.
1. Participants will understand various alternative options for project finance that leverage energy and operational cost savings.
2. Participants will learn about operational cost savings from systemic or equipment upgrades.
3. Participants will learn how to present out-of-pocket upgrade options to their organization's budget and finance executives.
4. Participants will understand how to package projects and position their site for favorable finance considerations.
