Mark Zimring of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory will join us on Thursday to discuss Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing and its potential to accelerate the adoption of energy efficiency and renewable energy in the United States. In addition to providing a brief introduction to PACE, Mark will provide an update the the current regulatory status of residential PACE and also discuss opportunities and challenges for PACE in the commercial sector. In particular, Mark will discuss the pros & cons of four specific commercial PACE financing models.
Please stay tuned to Blueprint for Efficiency as we continue to explore the PACE model from multiple viewpoints in the coming weeks.
