In recent years, energy efficiency financing strategies have gained prominence in a number of leading jurisdictions.  In some cases, loan volumes have grown to sizes that have attracted increased attention, while in others, policymakers have considered a shift toward financing and away from traditional program strategies as a potential means of minimizing program costs and achieving big-picture policy goals.  These developments point toward the importance of understanding the impact and potential of energy efficiency financing strategies. 

Please join us for a webinar on a recent report from the State and Local Energy Efficiency Action Network, Making It Count: Understanding the Value of Energy Efficiency Financing Programs Funded by Utility Customers.  Chuck Goldman of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory will moderate a panel that will include:

  • Bryan Garcia, President & CEO, Connecticut Green Bank
  • Deana Carrillo, Executive Director, California Alternative Energy & Advanced Transportation Financing Authority (CAEATFA)
  • Andrew Brydges, Director, Institutional Programs, Connecticut Green Bank

The speakers will discuss approaches in their jurisdictions toward understanding the value of energy efficiency financing programs.

The webinar will cover:

  • Financing programs in a regulatory context
  • Adapting traditional EE regulatory planning, evaluation, and performance tools to the unique aspects of EE financing
  • Tools and concepts for evaluating the impact of energy efficiency financing programs from multiple perspectives (e.g. resource acquisition, market transformation)
