ICF, a consulting and technology services provider to government and commercial clients around the world, was awarded a new contract with Exelon Corporation to support its energy efficiency commercial and industrial (C&I) Initiative. The agreement, awarded in the third quarter, has an approximate value of $90 million and a term of five years.
In addition, ICF was awarded two new contracts with Exelon subsidiary, PECO, to provide marketing support. The two contracts have a combined value of approximately $20 million and a term of five years.
For the C&I Initiative, ICF will work directly with Exelon’s largest utilities – Commonwealth Edison (ComEd), PECO, and Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) – to provide comprehensive implementation support to their C&I energy efficiency programs. Service areas include portfolio management, trade ally recruitment and retention, account management, engineering support, program tracking and reporting, rebate processing and customer care and engagement.
“Exelon is pioneering the effort to procure its energy efficiency support services in a consolidated structure intended to generate cost savings and efficiencies, drive best practices and improve program performance across its portfolio,” said Selim Karabulut, senior vice president for ICF. “ICF has the depth, breadth and technical capacity to deliver outstanding results across all Exelon company end-user profiles while fulfilling the needs of customers in distinct territories and regulatory markets.”
ICF offers the ideal combination of energy efficiency expertise, data-driven analytics, proven customer engagement strategies and the trusted relationships with key trade allies, utilities, regulators and customers to help Exelon optimize performance across its portfolio of programs. ICF brings over seven years of direct experience with BGE and PECO where the firm consistently delivered cost-effective energy savings and helped the utilities exceed program goals and regulatory objectives.
Under the marketing support initiative, ICF will serve as the marketing firm for PECO’s residential and commercial energy efficiency solutions. In this capacity, ICF will provide annual marketing strategic planning, design, production and execution of multi-channel promotional campaigns that educate, engage and encourage customers to participate in PECO’s energy efficiency programs.
Through the agreement, PECO will access ICF’s award-winning full-service marketing agency-of-record capabilities to support its energy efficiency programs: creative design, media planning, media buying, channel outreach, customer analytics using ICF’s proprietary platform, digital customer engagement and best-in-market national energy efficiency expertise.
