The Division of Facility Efficiency is responsible for managing the state's Guaranteed Energy Savings Performance Contracting (ESPC) program. This program was authorized by KRS 56.770 to 56.784 and allows for the installation or implementation of energy services or equipment, including efficiency measures, conservation measures and alternate energy technologies in state government buildings. The cost of these measures is funded by the energy and operational savings generated by the services or equipment.
The Division is also implementing a pilot program for the Commonwealth Energy Management and Control System (CEMCS). The CEMCS pilot project is an effort to build an enterprise software platform using 17 locations and 43 buildings in Kentucky. The pilot has five state agencies participating. This multi-agency approach will allow many different existing systems to be integrated. Four major initiatives are advancing simultaneously -- electronic bill pay; utility usage analysis and facility benchmarking; work order management; and, building automation system (BAS) integration.
