eProject Builder (ePB) is a free web-based system for entering and tracking energy service performance contract (ESPC) data through the life of a project. ePB was developed and is being maintained by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on behalf of DOE.
The initial version of ePB, which went live in June 2014, was developed primarily for federal projects, but has since been modified to accommodate performance contracts from all sectors. ePB enables energy service companies (ESCOs) and their customers to:
- Upload and track project-level data
- Generate project data for analysis and reporting
- Benchmark new projects against historical project performance data.
The system is fully operational, and a number of agency-ESCO pairs have registered and plan to use the tool in developing projects. The benefits of ePB include standardized ESPC data collection, transparent calculations for project scenarios and electronic task order schedules.
