This approach is more risky for the customer when operations and maintenance play a greater role in maintaining a project’s savings. The Basics of ESCO Contracts 31 In this type of arrangement, if the project does not generate the guaranteed level of savings, the ESCO simply adjusts the purchase price downward in a manner pre-defined in the contract. The adjustment generally reflects the net present value of the savings shortfall over the term of the financing.

With respect to risks, we have seen that in pay from savings, shared savings and chauffage contracts, the ESCO takes savings risk head-on. In guaranteed savings, the customer guarantees to repay the debt obligation undertaken to build the project, and the ESCO indemnifies the customer for taking this risk by giving a guarantee that the savings necessary to make the payments will be met. So what’s the difference if the ESCO takes the risk or the customer takes the risk and is indemnified? As we have seen, in the event that the savings are not met and the ESCO goes bankrupt, the customer may still have to pay the debt.
