Help us accelerate energy efficiency in the Northwest
NEEA actively solicits bids on open Requests for Proposals and Qualifications from qualified contractors. View our current requests below for more details. We appreciate your interest in NEEA, and in accelerating energy efficiency in the Northwest.
Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) seeks a qualified team to design and develop an online technical and financial analysis tool for the Existing Building Renewal (EBR) initiative. In the next phases of the EBR initiative, NEEA and its market partners will deploy the tool for leverage against market barriers to the deep energy retrofit of commercial office buildings. The Tool is conceived as an interactive, web-based resource for assessing deep energy retrofit project opportunities, developing a project scope, illustrating the value created by launching an Existing Building Renewal, and enabling decisions needed to plan and implement EBR projects.
NEEA is seeking proposals from contractors with expertise in web design and development, and software programming. The selected contractor will lead the NEEA team through the final specification and design of the EBR Tool, leveraging initiative development to-date, and recommending best practices for the Tool’s design, function, and usability. Upon approval of the final Tool design, the selected contractor will develop the EBR Tool and ensure functionality prior to launch for NEEA’s market test phase, expected in 4th quarter of 2014.
Intent to bid due by 5:00pm PST on December 4, 2013 and the written proposal is due January 8, 2014.

It excludes new construction, major tenant improvements, or lighting upgrades requiring remodeling and relocating fixtures. The market characterization of LLLC helps NEEA to understand the current market trends of LLLC which include, but are not limited to, market size, market penetration and non-energy benefits.

NEEA is soliciting proposals from contractors to conduct a review of the energy savings estimation methodology and a validation of reported energy savings.
Intent to respond due by 5:00pm PDT on November 15 and the written proposal is due December 9, 2013.
