Have you ever wondered why the Financiers and Engineers don’t get along? They speak different languages! Project ECMFin allows you to derive important financial metrics for your energy conservation measures (ECMs), thereby helping you create a business case for your retrofit measures. It enables you to compare scenarios across financial metrics such as net present value, payback period, internal rate of return, and many others. You can also get an expected range of values for these metrics, as the app automatically conducts a sensitivity analysis by varying key inputs. You can input values by hand, via a spreadsheet, or import results from your favorite energy analysis software – Green Building Studio! You can also save and compare scenarios and export results as a report.
