Holistic energy savings performance contracts (ESPCs) are growing in size and complexity in efforts to achieve resilience in their implementation. However, large ESPCs aren't the only tool for utilization, as the use of ESPC ENABLE has achieved the same results. Hear from federal agencies in how they are using these ESPC methods within their programs to effectively achieve resilience through analysis and execution. Case studies will be presented that showcase the implementation of resilience.
