The expected outcome of this tool is to provide users (whether project developers, investors, etc) with a simple analysis on the feasibility of an energy efficiency project.
The tool allows prospective users to insert information on the facility type, annual energy cost, equipment information and financial information. Results from the energy efficiency tool include Net Present Value, Internal rate of return, CO2 abatement cost, etc.
Although the energy efficiency calculator is a voluntary tool, it can be used as a quick indicator on the profitability of energy efficiency investments. However, the tool is limited to only electricity and does not consider financial analysis of other direct uses of energy such as furnace heating using diesel, etc.
