1 Building Retrofits: CCI and the Green Schools Alliance March 21, 2010

2 The GSA / CCI Partnership Craig HIbberd, Green Schools Alliance CCIs Energy Efficiency Building Retrofit Program Arah Schuur, CCI Case Study: Lee College Steve Evens, Lee College / Jim Swan, Johnson Controls How this works. Q & A Arah Schuur, CCI Contents

3 3 The GSA/CCI Partnership

4 GSA & CCI: Getting to Carbon Neutral CCI and Green Schools Alliance have entered into a partnership with the goal of promoting GHG reduction programs in K-12 schools: 2009: with the assistance of many industry experts, created a best practices toolkit as a resource for schools interested in learning about and conducting an EPCbest practices toolkit 2010: will initiate and support at least five (5) building energy efficiency projects with GSA member schools.

5 5 The Clinton Climate Initiative: Building Retrofit Program

6 Deliver carbon and sustainability commitments Existing buildings use an average of 25% more energy than new buildings LEED for Existing Buildings focuses on energy, water conservation Students are demanding green, LEED, high-performing space and new buildings are providing this Capture wasted energy & money There is excess energy and savings trapped in existing buildings, typically 20 – 50% Reduce energy use & lower operating expenses Energy efficiency retrofits offer low-risk, high-return investment Upgrade/renew aging infrastructure, address deferred maintenance Improve facility comfort & performance Benefits of Building Retrofits

9 Benefits of EPCs Innovative Contracting Model in which Project Cost and Energy Savings are Guaranteed by ESCOs EPC Projects Pay for Themselves Owners Control Process CCI ESCO partners agree to: Deliver financially justifiable & sustainable projects Work in alignment with CCI negotiated terms and conditions Work with CCI to minimize costs and pass on results Energy Services Performance Contracting (EPC)

10 CCI is serves as a pro bono consultant to schools in designing and implementing a building retrofit project. Facilitate project development and implementation Connect schools with ESCO, financial and technical partners Provide technical assistance Ensure that best practices are followed Provide access to supplier partners and product discounts Share best practice examples at each stage of project Measure and share results CHAMPION ACTUAL REDUCTIONS IN GHG EMISSIONS Role of CCI

11 Case Study:

12 ESCO: Johnson Controls Inc. Buildings: 35 Footprint: 589K square feet Construction duration: 12 months Project cost: $9.9M Annual cost savings from energy & maintenance: 32% ($716K) Simple payback: 15.6 years (financed over 20 years) Electricity: 43% reduction (7.4M kWh) Natural gas: 16% reduction (4,200M Btu) Water: 30% reduction (5.2M gallons) Carbon emissions: 4,400 tons CO 2 OverviewFinancesAnnual energy savings Lee College, Baytown Texas

13 13 What led us to consider an Energy Performance Contract? Accumulation of deferred maintenance cost on 40 year old buildings. Lack of available funds to make much needed repairs and improvements to infrastructure. Inefficient energy use due to age of infrastructure. Rising energy and operational costs Lee College, Baytown Texas

14 14 What were the immediate benefits? Many items proposed to be included in the FY 2009 operating budget were covered in the energy performance contract thus freeing up funds for instructional needs. Ability to finance facility projects in the energy performance contract eliminated the need to sell bonds to finance the costs. Lee College, Baytown Texas

15 What are the long-term benefits? The replacement of key infrastructure items allows the College to maintain these items replaced under warranty agreements. Additional budget can now be directed towards student learning rather than facilities. 15 Lee College, Baytown Texas
