Are you a state legislator or regulator considering policy tools to stimulate cost-effective energy savings? An end-use customer in need of financing to pay for the upfront costs of retrofits? A manager seeking to remove barriers to energy efficiency in your company or organization? Please join us for a new webinar series that addresses the challenges of obtaining affordable capital for energy use improvements in households, businesses and institutions.

This series is brought to you by the State Energy Efficiency Action Network (SEE Action), Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), and the Yale Center for Business and the Environment's Clean Energy Finance Forum.
Our first webinar in this series will define key terms in energy efficiency finance. We will discuss the rationales behind financing approaches such as Energy Performance Contracts (EPC), Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) and On Bill Repayment (OBR). We will also highlight the strengths and weaknesses of various sources of capital and the role of credit enhancement and financial products.
