BOURNE, MA, June 17, 2009 — The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) offers $20 billion for energy efficiency programs, creating unprecedented opportunity for energy services companies (ESCOs). State and federal programs are expanding to improve residential, institutional, government, commercial and industrial facilities nationwide. This expansion opens broad new markets for ESCOs to weatherize, upgrade lighting, replace underperforming fans and motors, and install efficient heating and cooling systems. As the market grows for energy efficiency, so does demand to measure and verify building energy savings.
A new white paper from Onset, Measurement & Verification: Tapping into ARRA Stimulus Funds, provides guidance on identifying potential sources of ARRA stimulus funding for energy performance monitoring projects. It details new programs from the ARRA, explains the growing importance of Measurement and Verification (M&V) services, and discusses specific ways ESCOs can apply portable data logging technology to document building energy savings.
The white paper is available as a free download from Onset’s website at http://www.onsetcomp.com/ARRA.
