The Investor Confidence Project is dedicated to enabling a market for investment quality energy efficiency projects, by reducing transaction costs and engineering overhead, while increasing the reliability and consistency of savings.
Currently project developers invest considerable time and effort in creating one-off proposals that contain unique project definitions, proprietary methodologies and models, and unstandardized documentation. Such proposals are difficult for decision makers and investors to underwrite and often require significant and often redundant reengineering steps. The result of this complexity is that building owners and managers are often not confident that they will realize predicted energy savings. Furthermore, investors are also unsure of the predicted revenue streams and future returns of projects.
By using ICP to standardized the approach to project origination and documentation, project developers can:
- Lower their transaction costs by utilizing a repetitive and efficient process for project origination
- Increase the certainty with which decision makers can evaluate and approve projects
- Reduce proposal evaluation and underwriting times
- Enhance their credibility and professionalism with clients and investors
Added up, these benefits will lead to a higher “hit rate” for proposed projects, thus increasing deal flow for project developers.
