The Efficiency Network (TEN) Establishes Foothold in Federal Space With Federal ESPC IDIQ Contract

TEN is one of only 20 companies to be named to the selective contract vehicle, enabling them to bid energy savings performance contracts to federal agencies

August 31, 2023

PITTSBURGH — The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently named The Efficiency Network (TEN) one of only 20 companies on the DOE Federal Energy Management Program Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) Generation 4 Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract list. Inclusion on this distinguished contract vehicle enables TEN to bid ESPCs to federal agencies for the next five years — including an additional five-year option period — with a $5 billion contract ceiling.

An ESPC is a partnership between a federal agency and an energy service company (ESCO) designed to procure energy-saving measures and facility improvements; reduce operating costs; and meet federal sustainability goals and presidential executive orders for greenhouse gas reduction.

“The DOE’s Gen 4 IDIQ selection process was very competitive, and the awardees include companies that have proven knowledge, experience and success in energy savings projects. TEN’s proposal stood out for the diversity and complexity of our previous project experience and for our extremely qualified team of technical experts,” said Troy Geanopulos, CEO of TEN. “As we look toward a clean energy future, we’re honored to have an opportunity to partner with the DOE and federal agencies to increase energy efficiency and resilience at their facilities while also helping them meet the goals of Executive Order 14057, Catalyzing Clean Energy Industries and Jobs Through Federal Sustainability.”
