Johnson Controls Federal Systems (JCFS) has acquired Federal Energy Infrastructure Solutions, a subsidiary of EDF Renewables North America. The transaction will allow Johnson Controls Federal Systems to expand on its work in the federal government energy savings performance contract (ESPC) marketplace. 

The company said the combination of Johnson Controls’ established ESPC resources and the EDF Renewables subsidiary’s federal government energy infrastructure expertise will allow for increased impact at government sites through the Department of Energy (DOE III) Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quality (IDIQ) ESPC Contract Vehicle and other federal programs.     

“This acquisition supports Johnson Controls’ goal of organizational growth and innovation in the design and delivery of holistic solutions that have significant impact on the resiliency, efficiency, and security of energy related assets for our federal government customers,” said Gregory Downes, vice president and general manager of Johnson Controls Federal Systems. “We are excited with the expansion of our capabilities as we take pride in the enablement of our customers’ critical missions.”  

Under an ESPC, an energy services company (ESCO) designs, constructs, and installs an energy and water savings project that meets the federal agency’s needs and provides financing, all with no required initial cost to the federal agency. Contractors are required to provide a guarantee to the federal agency that the improvements will generate annual energy savings sufficient to pay for the project over the term of the contract.   

Johnson Controls Federal Systems, Inc. (JCFS) is a division of Johnson Controls and consists of more than 680 professionals who focus solely on U.S. federal government projects.
