You’ll support business development initiatives by engaging in sales meetings with potential clients and developing opportunities into engagements with owners. Once under contract, you will work with our engineering team to conduct audits to identify and quantify energy, operational cost, resource conservation, and revenue generation opportunities associated with upgrades to treatment processes. Responsibilities will include client meetings, preliminary site investigations, developing conceptual conservation measures, estimating savings and revenue, developing cost estimates and written descriptions of energy conservation measures in support of ESPC proposals and technical audits. During the Investment Grade Audit (IGA) phase you will work with internal engineering resources and manage external consulting engineers in developing conceptual drawing packages and will prepare subcontractor Request for Proposals (RFP) for bidding. During the implementation phase you will maintain customer relations, oversee project development and provide engineering support for NORESCO’s in-house construction team.

As one of the largest energy services companies in the U.S., NORESCO uses design-build and a variety of performance-based contracting vehicles to deliver energy and maintenance savings and significant infrastructure upgrades to existing facilities. These upgrades can be funded through cost savings that the projects generate, without the need for up-front capital expenditures by the customer.We also provide build-own-operate-maintain (BOOM) services for central heating, cooling and power-generation systems. Our Facilities Services group operates and maintains these central plants as well as others that are outsourced to NORESCO by the facility owners.In addition, we offer a full suite of energy efficiency and sustainable design consulting services. We collaborate with building owners, architects and engineers to identify and integrate viable sustainable design strategies into projects to optimize overall energy and environmental performance in new construction and existing buildings. Our services include energy auditing, commissioning and retro-commissioning, energy & daylighting analysis, LEED® certification consulting, and sustainability master-planning.NORESCO's customers include... federal government agencies, universities, state and local governments, school districts, hospitals, and industrial and commercial businesses. We have guaranteed more than $3 billion in energy savings at more than 7,000 sites throughout the U.S. and worldwide.
