Regional Renewable Energy Procurement (R-REP)

Optony was selected by the County of Alameda and other Bay Area public agencies to guide a group of 19 district authorities through the process of a detailed collaborative energy procurement—the largest in the nation at the time. Optony assisted in the completion of over 200 site feasibility assessments and in the creation and distribution of Request for Proposal documents covering roughly 190 sites. Optony provided independent energy advisory support and led the technical analysis of vendor proposals. The firm helped convene and served on the job creation, labor, and advisory panel for the selection committee. Optony played a central role in moderating vendor interviews and proposal evaluations. Optony also served as a lead in contract negotiations with multiple contractors and achieved the most advantageous contract terms available for the buyers. As projects proceeded into construction Optony continues to guide projects through design and engineering, manage communication and administration, solve unexpected project obstacles, enforce project budget, and assure project quality and schedule throughout construction and system commissioning.
