Aegis offers Referral Program to spur development in burgeoning CHP field
Tiered program encourages promotion of Combined Heat and Power initiatives
In its continuing endeavor to innovate within the Combined Heat and Power industry, Aegis Energy, EDF Group has enlisted a little help from its friends with a new Referral Program.
Targeted to CHP advocates, vendor and supply partners within the trades, and scouts who can identify potential CHP sites, the program aims to incentivize those who wish to capitalize on the growing distributed energy field.
The CHP profile has been on the rise in recent years as companies continue to seek out ways to be energy efficient and less reliant on the grid. That search has coincided with more incentive support from states like Massachusetts, New York New Jersey, and Maryland (among others) and unique financing opportunities like Aegis’ Shared Savings Program.
Aegis is responding to that demand by arming its affiliates with the tools and incentives to spread the word.
The Referral Program has three tiers and is designed to engage partners on several levels and reward them for their CHP project development efforts.
The first level (Tier 1) is for partners such as energy consultants, auditors, and contractors that would like to offer CHP and have the ability to work through all aspects of the development process from attending planning meetings to collecting energy bills for evaluation and going on site tours.
Tier I partners will also deliver proposals and are part of agreement discussions.
The second option (Tier 2) is for trade allies that are currently occupied with a role in the energy efficiency/consulting/ or contractor fields. Tier 2 partners have existing relationships with the key players at facilities that are good fits for CHP.
Contractors who work in different capacities with nursing homes, assisted living and large multi-family residential units, resort hotels, and schools would fit in the Tier 2 category.
This ally would provide an introduction to their contact in the building and the Aegis Team would then engage in the process to determine the fit and potential to develop a CHP project.
Tier 3 partners would simply locate qualifying sites that meet Aegis’ first-level qualification guidelines for prospective CHP facilities.
The Combined Heat and Power market continues to mature and is creating opportunities for those interested in the field.
