Ohio state University launches energy PPP

The Ohio state University has launched a request for qualifications (RFQ) for a 50-year concession and lease contract for energy management services.

According to the RFQ, the opportunity consists of four major components:

  • the operation and maintenance of the utility system;
  • procurement of the energy supply for Ohio State’s primary campus located in Columbus, Ohio;
  • implementation to achieve energy savings goals for the Columbus Campus, which could include for example energy conservation measures (ECM); and
  • the development of an affinity relationship with Ohio State and its stakeholders.

The utility system is composed by: electric supply management and distribution system, chilled water system, steam and condensate system, natural gas supply management and distribution system and geothermal system.

Ohio State has invested nearly US$340 million since 2004 to upgrade the Utility System, with an additional US$31 million currently allocated to projects under construction. Ohio State anticipates approximately US$600 million of capital expenditures over the concession term of which approximately US$90 million is expected to be invested over the next 10 years.

Interested parties must submit their proposals on or before 6 April 2015. The preferred bidder is expected to be selected by the end of 2015.
