The terms of advance payment are defined in advance so that the contract can be transferred in the same way as a lease of aircraft for sale, or the contract can be terminated according to the terms of advance payment. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the parties agree that if Buyer requires additional access to the Properties after the date of signature in accordance with this Section 8.04, the parties will enter into a separate agreement in the same form as the Phase II ESA Agreement before Seller or Seller`s representatives enter the Property (an “Access Agreement”). Energy Service Agreements (ESAs) and Efficiency as a Service (EaaS) are flexible financing mechanisms that can include a wide range of efficiency measures. Owners receive energy technologies and services for a service fee (operating costs) compared to direct purchase (capital expenditures). Associated Renewable offers its customers customized Energy Service Contracts (ESAs) for all renovation projects. Monitoring equipment and project risk related to joint savings agreements will increase the total additional cost of the project to the end user, as they receive less of the monthly energy saving benefit than an end user who directly owns the equipment or an end user with a flat-rate monthly agreement. The customer enters into an agreement with the ESA supplier. The ESA supplier may also engage third-party companies such as ESCOs (energy service companies), construction companies and engineering companies with project management know-how. In this way, the ESA supplier can also agree to be responsible for ongoing maintenance, upgrades and improvements to ensure the continued success of the project. In general, ESA providers assume the risk of incurring savings to justify the investment by providing performance guarantees (insurance). Associated Renewable provides funding to building owners who wish to make energy renovations or improvements to their buildings without upfront investment. Under an Energy Services Contract (NCB), a building owner pays Associated Renewable a little less or the equivalent of its historical energy base. The baseline shows how high energy costs would have been without the renovation.
Over esa`s lifetime, the energy savings from the modernisation project will be used to pay for the new equipment. Through this funding model, the customer undertakes to reimburse the project costs through energy savings on electricity bills over the life of ESA. Savings occur immediately after the energy efficiency project is operated online and are typically measured in kilowatt hours (kWh) of electric and natural gas boilers. At the end of the ESA`s term, once the total cost of the project has been paid for by energy savings, the customer retains all savings and continues to pay lower electricity bills. The overall scope of an ESA project is more than $5 million in improvements, although this can be spread across multiple properties, i.e. A highly efficient boiler for each apartment building in a regional portfolio. To be eligible for an ESA, your solution must meet the following requirements: The main benefit of ESAs for building owners is the elimination of upfront costs for capital-intensive renovation projects that result in significant energy and cost savings over the life of their buildings. Payments come directly from the energy units saved. There is no additional capital or upfront costs on the part of the client. An ESA allows you to leverage IBM`s cutting-edge technology with open standards and combine it with your intellectual property – your added value – so you can offer your customers a complete solution under your brand and terms.

ESA and the Contractor will inform each other of any dispute arising from the ownership or use of intellectual property rights (48.1 & 62.1).
ESA may request the contractor to take measures or provide assistance, including the opening of legal proceedings, to prevent the infringement of new intellectual property rights (48.2 and 62.2). .
