The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab have released eProject eXpress (ePX), which provides a streamlined, tailored pathway for state and local governments to document, track, and demonstrate the ongoing value of their energy project retrofits. Leveraging the established eProject Builder (ePB) platform – an online energy project data management system that has transformed how energy retrofits are developed, tracked, and reported – ePX unlocks new capabilities to meet the unique data management and reporting needs of the municipal and state governments, universities and colleges, schools, and hospitals (MUSH) market. Through its customized, streamlined, and secure functionality, ePX can significantly reduce MUSH market customers’ costs and staff time associated with tracking project data and contract agreements. States can also leverage ePX to demonstrate how taxpayer dollars are being spent and illustrate how they are saving energy and employing local workers.

ePX development arose from NASEO’s work with states, the Energy Services Coalition (ESC), National Association of Energy Services Companies (NAESCO), and others identifying a need for a streamlined and simplified platform to enhance the quality and ease of state and local tracking of ESPC and other energy retrofit projects and their performance.

An ePX Introductory Training Webinar will be offered on August 19, 2021 from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET.  Please click here to register.
