FEMP Webcast August 1, 2013: Goal-Based Contracting for Energy Efficient Buildings

June 20, 2013

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) will host a live First Thursday Seminar webcast on Goal-based Contracting for Energy Efficient Buildings on August 1, 2013.

Experts Paul Torcellini of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Jason Koman of DOE’s Building Technologies Office will cover ways to structure and implement goal-based contracts that achieve high-performance buildings with low energy profiles. Learn how upfront contract provisions can lead to measurable performance benchmarks in building construction and operations.

Discover techniques that result in:  

  • innovation by design teams and contractors to incorporate energy efficiency as part of the design/construction process
  • owners who are focused on project management, rather than solving design/construction problems
  • minimal additional cost to achieve significant energy savings (in the range of 50% reduction)
  • strong communications between owners, design teams, and contractors
  • best practices, examples, and lessons learned from successful projects  

This 90-minute training session is free to attend. Advance registration is required to obtain a link to the broadcast, which will air on Thursday, August 1 , 2013, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Eastern time.  

Register to attend.  

FEMP First Thursday Seminars are no cost training opportunities to help Federal energy, environmental, and fleet professionals plan and execute projects to help meet Federal goals and requirements.
