  • WHO DO WE DO IT FOR?
    • Commercial and Industrial Businesses
      • Corporations, Manufacturers, Property Owners, Property Managers, Utilities
    • Energy Service Companies (“ESCOs")
      • Federal, State and Municipal Government Agencies
        • US Post Office, Schools K-12, Private and Public Universities, Public Housing, Correction Facilities, Military Facilities
  • ENERGY EFFICIENCY AS “FIRST FUEL”
    • Quickest, safest, most cost-effective way to:
      • Deliver immediate permanent energy cost savings
      • Improve facilities’ infrastructure, environs, and value
      • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve sustainability
      • Create “green” jobs
      • Bolster national security by reducing dependence on foreign oil
    The Cleanest and Greenest Energy Is Energy Not Used
  • DELIVERY PROCESS PERFORMANCE PERIOD Opportunity Assessment IMPLEMENTATION DEVELOPMENT ORIGINATION Site Survey Conceptual Design Final Cost & Scope Execute scope of work Demonstrate ROI Handle documentation for rebates and incentives Provide ongoing energy use monitoring
  • ENERGY EFFICIENCY TODAY
    • Start with your bill – what is your energy cost at each plant?
    • Audit your buildings, what are the biggest categories of energy use?
      • Indoor lighting
      • Outdoor lighting
      • Process motors
      • Air conditioning / refrigeration
      • Heating
      • Other electrical
    • Decide what you want your bill to be next year
    • Take the steps to get there
    • Track your progress
  • CHALLENGES FOR ORGANIZATIONS IN EXECUTING FACILITY ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROJECTS
    • Lack of understanding of opportunities to reduce operating costs/ carbon emissions
    • Lack of in-house expertise/ independent analysis
    • Concern about cost of up-front capital expenditure requirements
    • Lack of understanding about tax incentives and rebate programs available
    • Lack of understanding about financing opportunities
    • Limited number of energy efficiency services solution providers
    Lime Energy addresses all of the challenges in executing energy efficiency projects
  • EXAMPLE ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROJECT FACILITY LIGHTING
    • SIMPLE ONE FOR ONE REPLACEMENT
    • No change in light levels
    • No repositioning
    • No interaction with other controls
    • Often a single fixture type
    • Example Result
      • Spend $200,000
      • Save $80,000 per year
      • 2 ½ year payback
    • ENGINEERED UPGRADE
    • Correct light levels for the task
    • New fixture locations where appropriate
    • Occupancy/daylight/total building controls
    • New fixtures to meet new needs
    • Lighting simulation study
    • Example Result
      • Spend $350,000
      • Save $180,000 per year
      • 1.9 year payback
    The Engineered Upgrade saves $100,000 more per year (Equals additional profits from $3 million in new sales) TWO PATHS TO FOLLOW
  • EXAMPLE ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROJECT FACILITY LIGHTING
    • SIMPLE LIGHTING CHANGE OUT
    • May overlook the best utility rebates
    • May overlook the latest tax treatment
    • May overlook the opportunity to redesign
    • May overlook the latest technology, or spend too long researching
    • ENGINEERED SOLUTION
    • Up on the latest technology, tried and proven
    • Maximize utility rebates
    • Maximize tax benefits
    • May offer several options for redesign, each with superior financials
    • Be sure to choose a qualified resource
    TWO PATHS TO FOLLOW THIS GETS EVEN MORE COMPLICATED WHEN YOU GO BEYOND LIGHTING.
  • Benefits of Energy Efficiency
    • Reduce operating costs
    • Increased profitability
    • Increased competitiveness
    • Corporate public image
    • Attracting future workforce
    “ The future belongs to those who understand that doing more with less is compassionate, prosperous and enduring, and thus more intelligent, even competitive.” - Paul Hawken , entrepreneur and environmental author
  • Consumer Demand
    • Your customers are increasingly Gen X and Gen Y
    • 60% of American consumers say they're seeking out green products, and 66% say they haven't curtailed their green spending in this economy
  • WHY LIME ENERGY? Extensive Intellectual Capital & Technical Expertise Independent Service Provider Using Best-of-Breed Technologies Financing and Rebate Procurement Capabilities National Service Capabilities Diversified Across Service Lines and End Markets
