Achieving Net Zero with Energy as a Service

DURATION: 1.25 hours
Innovative technology and financing solutions are needed to support asset owners and managers as they accelerate the transition of building portfolios to net zero. The extra cost of technology for a net zero project still presents a challenge to the business case. The lifecycle-costs business case can often justify the extra up-front costs over the long term, but in many cases it is still not enough to make the project feasible.

Utilizing an Energy as a Service (EaaS) model, these technologies can be delivered, but eliminated from up-front costs while keeping lifecycle costs neutral over the long term.

Presented by Ameresco Canada, this session explores how the EaaS model can help bridge the financing gap to achieve a net zero building and:

- Integrate advanced renewable technologies
- Stabilize lifecycle costs
- Off load performance risk

A case study on how this model helped fund Canada's first operationally carbon neutral school will also be presented.
