Promote the use of alternative financing contract vehicles, such as Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPC) and Utility Energy Service Contracts (UESC) for data center consolidation projects. Limiited budgets only allow for small interim improvements in greening the federal IT infrastructure. ESPC & UESC would provide the capital investment needed to make a substantial transformation in federal IT infrastructure, thereby, reducing the number of federal data centers, reducing the operating cost of federal IT, improve the (mobile) computing capability of federal workers, and achieve the EO 13514 sustainability goals.
