Building Energy Efficiency

Energy Savings through Financing

The tension between pursuing efficiency opportunities versus securing the investment capital required has always existed.  For over 30 years the traditional ESCO market has offered a performance contracting approach that allows Federal and MUSH industry organizations to finance their building efficiency system upgrades. However, the commercial and industrial market has not had those options.

In the last several years the financing market for energy efficiency has become broader, with an increasing number of techniques that commercial, industrial and institutional organizations can consider to achieve their energy and sustainability goals.

Upfront Capital Not Required

Financing energy efficiency is compelling because it provides a way to achieve cash flow positive savings without a negative operational impact to the building occupants.  Whether it’s lease financing, on-bill financing or Energy-as-a-Service, there are many options.  Dalkia can employ a multi-tiered strategy when assessing existing building systems to identify incentives, grants and other financing opportunities. Dalkia maximizes the economic performance of building energy upgrades while reducing or eliminating the capital required to get started and keep going.

We understand that time and resources are limited, so we leverage our team of knowledgeable engineers and energy specialists to identify and monetize all available financing opportunities from utilities, clean energy trusts, government-lead grant programs, Federal Energy Policy Act (EPAct) incentives and more.
