  36. 36. 8. MONITOR, MEASURE & VERIFY PERFORMANCE To calculate the ACTUAL savings achieved! Factors should be considered to reduce dispute in EPC Contract  Commitment from the client  Factors affecting savings performance  Valuating savings uncertainty  Minimum operating conditions  Energy prices/tariff rates  Verification by A third party  Baseline modification/review(non-routine)  Balancing uncertainty and costs
  37. 37. Options For Energy Baseline & Savings Calculation Method Advantages DisadvantagesUtility billing history Low cost •Effects of weather , occupancy, other changes Data already available may mask savings Independent data Represent all effects of •May be unreliable unless ESMs savings are significant compared to normal bill Account for interactive variation effects Isolate effects of ESMsSystem/Equipment •Higher cost Very accurate for lightingsub-metering measures •Misses interactive effects Results are more predictable(low risk)
  38. 38. Baseline: Baseline year from electricity bill data (kWh)(kWh)
  39. 39. Example: Energy saving calculated by the difference between abaseline year and a subsequent year from electricity bill (kWh)
  40. 40. Baseline : Building Monthly Load Profile (kW) from sub-metering 40
  41. 41. Baseline : Building monthly electricity consumption profile(kWh) from sub-metering 41
  42. 42. Baseline : Building monthly load profile(kW) for AHU from sub-metering 42
  43. 43. Baseline : Monthly electricity consumption profile(kWh) for AHU from sub-metering 43
  44. 44. Example: Savings calculated based on actualmeasurement from sub-meters
  45. 45. Modifying/Reviewing Baseline To establish standards for “Materials” changes which may reasonable expected to change energy consumption trend in the facility  Occupied square footage, operating hours Trust , good relationship  Facility’s energy equipment/operating parameters other than the ESCO equipment & effective communication between  Energy equipment, other than ESCO equipment, ESCO & building owner that malfunctions, or is repaired, or replaced in a is crucial to identify the manner that increases or decreases energy needs to modify/review consumption; baseline!  Other actions taken by the facility owner that may reduce or increase energy use; and,  Discovery of an error in the original baseline, in which case the change would be retroactive
  47. 47. Key imperative for financingCertainty: • Revenue certainty and ring fencing • Precedence Clarity: • Project size and feasibility study • Procurement framework Commitment: • Counter party • Institutional arrangementSource: KPMG
  48. 48. Financing Options for EPC 1. GUARANTEED 2. SHARED SAVINGS Model SAVINGS Model • The loan goes on the client’s • The loan goes on ESCO’s balance sheet balance sheet 3. Through a Special Purpose Vehicle(SPV) created specially for the purpose In all above, ESCO provides a guarantee of the project’s technical performance and satisfaction of contracted specifications with the client

  55. 55. WHAT’S NEXT?
  56. 56. Proposed Support Programs by thegovernment for EPC Implementation  To create a special revolving fund for EPC Projects with lower interest rates – to kick-off and develop the EPC market  Development of in-house capacity in technical & financial evaluation of EE&EC Projects for  Authorized agency  financial institutions  Development and acceptance of standard technical evaluation, monitoring and performance verification criteria for EE&EC Projects  With by technical experts from recognized professional/industry bodies/ associations  Development of and acceptance of standard evaluation for funding and risk assessment criteria for EE&EC Projects  Sharing of experiences in successful investments in EPC projects through seminars/dialogues • (results, payback period) from people in business community who have experienced it • Criteria of viable EE projects • Competency of ESCOs
  57. 57. Proposed Actions Required for Financial Institutions  To specialize in green technologies such as EE  EE has wide range of technologies & applications with different levels of difficulties in technology(implementation, reliability, ease of operation and durability Due to…  Insufficient proven domestic case studies by banks  EE project require time and specific expertise to be assessed  EE funds started in other countries such as Thailand & USA has developed in-house expertise for banks in evaluating EE projectsSource: Green Prospects Asia, June 2012
  58. 58. Expected Impacts From EPC Implementation IMPROVED •Energy Efficiency •Competitiveness /profits PERFORMANCE •Environmental IMPLEMENTATIONINTRODUCTION & & SUPPORT MONITORING, quality AWARENESS MEASURES MEASUREMENT & VERIFICATION REDUCED •Energy consumption & costs •CO2 emissions CREATED •Business & job opportunities •More experts/workers from EE industry •New source of economic growth & Direct Domestic Investments
  59. 59. THE CONCLUSIONS EPC The potentials in Malaysia is still relatively “UNTAPPED” Interested parties must have the same understanding & goals on how to make EPC works ESCOs must have/develop competency & capability to ensure successful EPC projects implementation More successful EPC projects are required to attract more attention of building owners & banks/investors
  60. 60. THE CONCLUSIONS FINANCING FOR EE PROJECTS  is more complex than rebate or grant programs  potential for leverage and for low/no energy subsidies  provide new opportunities for overcoming barriers to the adoption of EE measures  should be viewed as a complement to other strategies such as building energy codes, appliance EE standards, or utility rebate programs  successful financing program should support, and not be a barrier to, customer participation - financing should remain streamlined, easy- to-access, and quick
