  • Energy Savings Performance Contracts for state agencies
    Oregon defines an Energy Savings Performance Contract as a public contract between a state agency and a qualified energy service company for the identification, evaluation, recommendation, design and construction of energy conservation measures, including a design-build contract, that guarantee energy savings or performance (ORS 279A.010).
    HB 3612 (2008) directed the Oregon Department of Energy to establish and manage the qualifications criteria for selection of Energy Service Companies (ESCO) to perform Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) services for state agencies. Pre-qualification is the first step of a two-part process, which requires state agencies planning to enter into an ESPC to only select from the pre-qualified list. The second step requires agencies to follow state procurement requirements and advertise a request for proposals (RFP) to a minimum of three firms on the pre-qualified list. State-owned facilities over 10,000 square feet must also follow the requirements of the State Energy Efficient Design (SEED) program.

The Oregon Department of Energy has developed the ESPC Guidebook as a resource for State Agencies that are considering ESPC for state owned facilities. The guidebook is designed to assist state agencies in understanding, developing and implementing energy savings performance contracts.
