Taking care of many measures simultaneously in energy investments is difficult, but bundling can make it easier. It enables one to combine many small measures into one package, which can increase the profitability of an investment and make it look more attractive to potential investors.   One of various ways of approaching bundling is combining Total Concept Method (TCM) and Total Tool, which can help illustrate the economic profitability of individual measures.

To predict the profitability of an investment, financial calculation methods are used. Since the traditional approach, based on pay-back time, is inefficient, the project propose tools (in web and Excel versions) that enables one to employ several methods, either independently or in combination.   In particular, Net Present Value and Internal Rate of Return prove efficient and helpful for building managers, energy auditors, and other investors.
