EEFG’s on-call financial engineering assistance service, nicknamed “Financial Ninjas”, helps consultants, contractors, vendors, service providers, utility account representatives, end-users and others make more compelling value propositions once the technical engineering aspects of a proposed energy-efficiency improvement have been defined.
While many managers will say the reason they don’t fund efficiency projects is a lack of capital, it is often the case that managers simply don’t believe the investment represents the highest and best use of their capital. Better financial analysis techniques and decision-making support have been shown to increase the number of energy-saving capital projects that are approved and funded by customers. They also improve the “closing ratio” of vendors/service providers who propose projects. The more projects approved, the higher the levels of energy savings, sales, and job creation.
EEFG’s one-on-one coaching is designed for situations where such financial engineering assistance could be instrumental in getting energy-saving capital projects approved.
