Abstract

Central America and the Caribbean face problems that stem from high energy consumption, which can be reduced through energy efficiency improvements.This project supports this effort by assisting in the expansion of Ener-G Tech Investment, a Costa Rican energy service contractor. This was accomplished by investigating Ener-G's current performance, evaluating the company's environmental impact, and creating a franchising business plan. Utilizing client survey results, research, and information from Ener-G executives, the team designed a franchise structure, analyzed potential markets, identified financing sources, and made improvements recommendations. The business plan will guide the company in expansion, thereby facilitating energy efficiency improvements in the region.
