From 2016 through 2018 the ESC worked with 34 states who voluntarily shared their state’s approach to Guaranteed Energy Savings Performance Contracting (GESPC). The information provided below is a result of an analysis of the data collected as part of that effort. Respondents were broken into two tiers based on their responses. Ten states were grouped into the Tier One category. These states had programs that were model programs in the areas of leadership and program design. These Tier One states also reported more projects, and project investment total per capita, than the 24 Tier Two states (the balance of the 34 states). The Tier One states were presented with the ESC’s Energy Stewardship Champions Award during its 5th and 6th Annual Market Transformation Conferences.
