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.
