  • Title: NAESCO - Message from the Director
    Descriptive info: .. From the Desk of the Executive Director.. NATIONAL VOICE OF THE ESCO INDUSTRY.. NAESCO serves as the national voice of the ESCO industry through its national and regional advocacy efforts that have such a direct impact on the strategic interests of our members.. We can be proud that our industry and our members are the vanguard of leading the economy back to life by providing the investment, the jobs, and the infrastructure improvements needed to rebuild America.. We have worked together with our membership to promote the aggressive pursuit of energy efficiency at state, federal, and international facilities; to ensure the key role of ESCOs in delivering energy efficiency resources; and to build new market opportunities while growing existing markets.. NAESCO ADVOCACY INITIATIVES.. We expect that our advocacy work in 2013 will build on the work undertaken in 2012 and will continue to be a mix of.. Ensuring the continued funding and political support for key federal, state and utility-administered ESPC programs,.. Advocating for utility and state energy efficiency incentives that enhance ESCO projects in states with major ESCO markets, and.. Promoting the adoption and use of state and utility energy savings monitoring and verification (M V) rules and protocols that are workable and that recognize the full value that customers realize from ESCO projects.. In 2012, NAESCO largely concentrated its advocacy work at the state and regional level because federal legislation and policy initiatives were circumscribed by the demands of the national election.. While the re-election of President Obama ensures a continuing commitment to the use of energy efficiency and renewable energy strategies at federal facilities, it is not yet clear what the Administration's energy priorities may be on a broader scale.. FEDERAL ISSUES.. REGISTRATION AS MUNICIPAL ADVISOR.. The SEC announced that it is postponing the issuance of the final rule on the registration of Municipal Financial Advisors until September 2013.. Articles about the resignation of SEC Chair Schapiro cited the fact that the SEC had completed less than a third of the rules it is required to issue in order to implement the Dodd-Frank Act, so our issue has not been singled out for delay.. NAESCO has been lobbying the SEC and the Congress to have ESCOs excluded from registration since the temporary rule was promulgated in 2010.. FEDERAL ESPC PROGRAM.. NAESCO continues to focus on the successful implementation of the $2 billion investment objective of the federal ESPC program, which President Obama announced in December, 2011.. NAESCO is working under a FEMP subcontract to help FEMP identify and address the barriers to project development and implementation.. NAESCO is also engaged in the design and implementation of the initial pilot Deep Retrofit programs proposed by the Army and the GSA.. 2013 WISH LIST.. We surveyed our member ESCOs for their input to a short list of priorities that we, as an industry, can take to the Obama Administration for action in 2013.. Our working list is as follows:.. Accelerate and complete the implementation of the President's $2 billion federal buildings performance contracting investment initiative.. Clarify and standardize among agencies the allowable term and other regulations that apply to UESC projects.. Expand the federal ESPC IDIQ to include mobility such as ships and planes in the permissible scope of work.. Rework, expand, and re-deploy the 179d tax deduction beyond the end of 2013 when it is scheduled to expire.. Streamline HUD EPC project development and approval procedures.. And finally, a wish that all of us can support from one of the founding members of NAESCO, a 30% federal tax credit for all EE and RE measures.. EMPHASIS ON ADMINISTRATIVE ACTIONS.. NAESCO has participated in meetings with senior US DOE officials and White House staff as part of a national coalition of energy efficiency organizations.. We have communicated our priorities to the Administration, and have learned that the Administration intends to focus its efforts on what it can accomplish with administrative actions using its existing authority.. The headline for this set of policies is the continuing enforcement of the Clean Air Act, which, through a combination of court orders and administration initiatives, is precipitating a massive shift in electric generation away from coal toward natural gas and energy efficiency.. The most recent US DOE Energy Information Administration forecast shows that increases in energy efficiency, from existing programs only, will absorb all growth in electricity consumption in the medium term (to 2025).. New programs or substantially increased programs will reduce the current consumption.. Other administrative actions that we are urging:.. Accelerate follow through execution of the $2 billion Federal Performance Contracting Challenge and ensure that the federal ESPC program maintains this accelerated pace of production in future years;.. Issue rules that improve energy efficiency in appliances, equipment, manufactured housing and new site-built homes;.. Focus the Better Buildings Initiative on commercial buildings and implement previously announced programs;.. Expand federal adoption and procurement of CHP and assist states in accelerating CHP;.. Continue data-gathering efforts, building on Green Button and including residential and commercial sectors;.. Adopt the SAVE Act administratively;.. Work with FHFA to develop criteria under which PACE first liens will be permitted; and.. Support increased implementation of benchmarking, evaluation, and energy use disclosure programs at all levels of government.. STREAMLINING HUD PHA PROJECT DEVELOPMENT.. NAESCO helped to organize an all-day meeting at HUD in fourth quarter 2012 that was designed to analyze the efficacy of the existing EPC development process at HUD-assisted Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) with the focus on project development process bottlenecks and discussion of potential solutions.. A number of NAESCO member ESCOs attended the meeting, and we came away with a list of near-term action items.. NAESCO continues to work with HUD to provide industry feedback on the EPC program and to suggest strategies that might successfully address existing project implementation barriers.. This conversation with HUD will continue to be a priority in 2013.. STATE ISSUES.. While some of our 2013 state activity will be related to new initiatives arising from the work of state legislatures, we do know that there will be some states that will require continued attention in 2013.. Michigan â New ESPC Legislation.. We will continue to push for the passage of HB 5727, which was passed by the House in September and by the Senate on December 12.. The bill is similar to legislation in a number of other states that seeks to encourage state and local government agencies to use ESPC by defining the measures that can be included in a project, extending the maximum term of the project to 15 years, appointing a state â championâ agency (Department of Technology, Management  ...   and the magnitude of energy and dollar savings created by the industry in the aggregate; and to position the Association as a key resource for our members, their customers, as well as state, federal, and global policy makers.. PRESS.. We were happy to contribute to the publication of an October 23, 2012 article in The New York Times entitled â Cities Enticed by Pay-if-You-Save Energy Dealsâ which profiled the industry based on interviews with Donald Gilligan, Terry Singer, Chuck Goldman at LBNL and highlighting a Chevron Energy Solutions' project in California.. NAESCO and the ESCO industry have also been featured in articles in the a variety of trade press and end user trade publications and in May 2012, then NAESCO Chairman Jim Dixon appeared on behalf of NAESCO and the industry on E E TV, a leading source for daily coverage of environmental and energy policy and markets.. We plan to continue our focus on press outreach in 2013 in order to hammer home our message that ESCO delivered projects are the primary source of long- term measured and verified energy and dollar savings; ESCOs create good jobs nationwide and have continued to hire throughout the economic downturn; and energy efficiency is the cheapest and most environmentally benign resource and should be a key part of every energy portfolio.. SOCIAL MEDIA.. NAESCO opened a Twitter account in 2012 and have a growing following.. We currently use the Twitter account to send followers hyperlinks to external coverage of the energy service industry and the benefits of energy efficiency as well as to draw attention to NAESCO activities and that of our membership.. If you have not done so already, please follow us at NAESCO_DC.. Additionally, NAESCO created a Facebook page.. We believe that these tools are helpful in increasing the visibility of the industry and the role of NAESCO as a source of up to date information about energy efficiency and the ESCO marketplace.. NAESCO participates daily in LinkedIn groups that focus on energy efficiency and performance contracting.. As part of our redesign of the NAESCO website, there will be direct links to the NAESCO twitter and Facebook accounts.. CUSTOMER OUTREACH.. In an effort to increase our outreach to end user groups as well as to service members' interest in getting in front of customer groups, NAESCO has been working to forge closer alliances with other trade organizations in which there are shared members.. NAESCO has also been reaching out to local energy offices and non-profits in conjunction with our meetings and conferences.. NAESCO made a presentation at a US DOE-sponsored Solid State Municipal Lighting Consortium to an audience of city and county governments about using ESPC as the preferred mechanism for implementing advanced street lighting projects.. NAESCO made a presentation as well on Non Energy Benefits at the annual meeting of the Energy Services Coalition and a presentation on the NAESCO/LBNL ESCO Market Survey at the 2012 National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) annual meeting.. NAESCO also participated in a panel entitled â Accelerating Commercial Building Energy Efficiency Retrofitsâ coordinated by the Chesapeake Crescent Initiative.. The panel examined different strategies to accelerate commercial building retrofits in Washington DC, Virginia, and Maryland.. NAESCO briefed the City of Ft.. Worth, Texas on ESCO capabilities to aid the city in their.. Better Buildings Challenge.. program and a not-for-profit called Third Way about the potential for ESCOs to aid their goals.. NAESCO made a presentation on the capabilities of ESCOs and the ESPC project process to the Oakland, CA kickoff of the Emerald Cities Collaborative national community college program, which was carried by webinar to the ten cities where Emerald Cities has active affiliates.. NAESCO also participated as a presenter on a webinar on performance contracting and the ESCO industry to the Denver-based Cleantech Fellows Institute.. INTERNATIONAL.. NAESCO regularly receives inquiries from ESCOs in other countries that are looking for US ESCO partners.. NAESCO broadcasts these requests to its ESCO members and refers interested companies to the foreign ESCOs.. During the past few months, we have inquiries from, and made referrals to, ESCOs in Belgium, Italy, Panama and Israel.. In 2012, NAESCO gave a presentation on the ESCO Industry to an international delegation coordinated by the U.. Department of Commerce.. The delegation consisted of 19 energy efficiency professionals from 8 Eurasian countries (Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan).. The delegates were directors and high level managers of companies working to improve energy efficiency for new buildings and building retrofits.. NAESCO also addressed a Chinese delegation hosted by the Triway International Group who were in the US to learn about sustainable development.. NAESCO has also been meeting with representatives of the Indonesian Ministry of Industry and the Indonesian ESCO Association APKENINDO, which are interested in having US ESCOs expand their presence in Indonesia to enable the country to meet aggressive energy efficiency and GHG reduction goals in major industries.. ACCELERATING INFORMATION DISSEMINATION.. In addition to our bi-monthly journal, we send out weekly updates to our membership highlighting the week's news likely to be of special interest to the industry.. We have helped match speaking slots for our members with end user groups and have helped members place articles in trade publications.. Last year, we brought back Face-to-Face meetings with ESCO and Member Exhibitors at our annual conference after a hiatus of several years.. These meetings started out as a way for the NAESCO vendor members who exhibit at the NAESCO conferences to have some undiluted face time with the ESCO members to talk about their product lines.. The event was a huge success in 2011 and even a bigger event in 2012.. We hosted eight webinars in 2012 that were very popular among our membership with over 1100 participants over the course of the year.. The webinars are free to NAESCO members.. These webinars provide timely information to all of our members and provide another opportunity for our Energy Service Affiliate members to reach the entire NAESCO membership with information about their area of expertise.. Website.. We are undergoing a re-design of our website that will have a cleaner homepage and a format that it is easier for users to navigate.. Our social media will be integrated so it will make it easier for visitors to tweet and share our articles and press releases.. We have seen an increase in web traffic as well as higher search placement in Google for key words related to the industry.. We have also seen a sharp increase in traffic to our event pages as well as our events being re-posted by other industry groups..
