Johnson Controls offers building Energy Performance Contracts that put facility upgrades within financial reach. It’s totally accountable: a guarantee that building improvements will deliver operational and utility savings over a fixed period. And it’s low-risk, because Johnson Controls pays the difference if the savings don’t accrue.
Facility and infrastructure retrofit costs are offset by utility and operational savings, helping businesses and organizations fund capital improvements, maintain cash flow and reduce emissions. Johnson Controls helped establish energy performance contracting in 1983 and has implemented more than 3,000 performance contracts in North America alone.
Facility audits identify opportunities to improve the efficiency of building envelope, lighting, HVAC, water and other systems. Performance contract specifies the scope of improvements, associated costs, estimated energy and other savings, grants available for project funding and resulting cost savings. Performance assurance staff validates savings and provides effective communications.
As one of the largest energy services companies in the U.S., NORESCO uses design-build and a variety of performance-based contracting vehicles to deliver energy and maintenance savings and significant infrastructure upgrades to existing facilities. These upgrades can be funded through cost savings that the projects generate, without the need for up-front capital expenditures by the customer.
We also provide build-own-operate-maintain (BOOM) services for central heating, cooling and power-generation systems. Our Facilities Services group operates and maintains these central plants as well as others that are outsourced to NORESCO by the facility owners.
In addition, we offer a full suite of energy efficiency and sustainable design consulting services. We collaborate with building owners, architects and engineers to identify and integrate viable sustainable design strategies into projects to optimize overall energy and environmental performance in new construction and existing buildings. Our services include energy auditing, commissioning and retro-commissioning, energy & daylighting analysis, LEED® certification consulting, and sustainability master-planning.
NORESCO’s customers include federal government agencies, universities, state and local governments, school districts, hospitals, and industrial and commercial businesses. We have guaranteed more than $3 billion in energy savings at more than 7,000 sites throughout the U.S. and worldwide.
