ESCOs Vision
This section should describe the ESCO’s aspirations.
 The vision is a short text (a sentence less than half page).
 It is a good strategy to present the vision to employees and
customers in a way that generates pride
 It should also be presented to suppliers and trade associations in
such a way that it creates a brand image
 For example:
• “The ESCO fights climate change sustainably for the benefit
of future generations”
 A list of the values of the company can be developed: a series of
words that characterize the ideals of the enterprise or the unit.
For example: "excellence", "quality", "thorough",
"professionalism", "commitment", "innovation", etc.

ESCOs Mission
This section describes in a practical way what the ESCO’s role is.
 Examples of elements to include are:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
what it sells and to whom
what economic area it belongs to
what its specialty is
what its target market is
who are its suppliers
what are its main activities
what will be its sources of investment financing, etc.
For example:
The ESCO’s Mission is to sell energy saving projects to organizations in Jamaica’s
public sector, such as hospitals and schools, including measures for saving energy
with medium and/or high levels of investment. The ESCO mainly sells engineering
services, including: energy efficiency audits, detailed engineering, construction
supervision, starting-up, and monitoring the measurement and verification (M&V)
of the equipment purchases and works together with a contractor; it takes the
technical risk with a "guaranteed savings" model and helps its clients in the search
for financing from commercial banks.

Business plans are highly confidential for ESCOs
Normally, ESCOs professionals are in the day by day work and
they have no time at all
International experience has not always local aplicability,
ecosystems are different in each country
Commercial Plans and Management on EE and ER SMEs has
low level of development
ESCOs can start with a LIGHT Business Plan
ESCOs can develop their own strategies, it is good to help them
improving EE ecosystem
