ICF Awarded Contract for Major Utility Energy Efficiency Work

ICF International has been awarded a contract, valued at $6.7 million for a term of 17 months, to support a major utility energy efficiency new construction program.

Through a performance-based tiered incentive program, ICF will promote increased energy efficiency in residential market rate and low income/affordable new home construction. ICF will also educate homebuilders, code officials, and trade allies regarding the energy saving benefits and value of building to higher energy efficiency standards over code.

“Energy efficiency in the new construction and major renovations markets is an important part of our client’s annual energy savings goals,” said Mike Mernick, senior vice president for ICF International. “It has long been understood that building an efficient house in the first place reduces the need to provide additional energy efficiency services for the same house down the road. New construction is a significant opportunity for energy efficiency and potentially a very large lost opportunity if action isn’t taken.”
