Director’s Message

From the Desk of Timothy D. Unruh, NAESCO Executive Director

The National Association of Energy Service Companies, NAESCO, is the national trade association that represents Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) and those who work with them - The ESCO Community. Together, our community is built around efficiency, sustainability, resiliency, and optimization.

In 2022, I see the opportunity to make the clear message that performance contracting is the solution to efficiency, sustainability, and cost reduction. Our 2021 theme was Partnering today for a more efficient tomorrow.  We will continue that message this year, as performance contracting goes beyond efficiency, sustainability and cost reduction and is able to address infrastructure, resiliency, security, deferred maintenance, capital improvement, safety, and many more. In other words, I see the message is that performance contracting is THE solution - it is the solution to many types of issues.

As the national trade association of the ESCO Community, NAESCO provides support through:

Advocacy – finding pathways to make business happen, and to solve problems that arise
Engagement – actively involving ourselves in the energy community to encourage cost-effective solutions to infrastructure improvement
Training – providing workshops, webinars and conferences that will educate providers and users of energy services
Support – developing solutions to direct problems that arise on projects and issues our membership encounters
