Secondary Markets: A Sustainable Capital Source for Energy Efficiency?

Access to secondary market capital can help enable dramatic scaling of the energy efficiency industry. However, the role of these markets is largely untested and only a handful of transactions have been executed to date – it is too soon to draw robust conclusions from these deals. At the same time, energy efficiency program administrators face very real, near-term decisions regarding whether and how to access secondary markets. 

Please join us for a webinar on a forthcoming report from the State and Local Energy Efficiency Action Network Accessing Secondary Markets as a Capital Source for Energy Efficiency Finance Programs: Program Design Considerations for Policymakers and Administrators.

The webinar will cover: 

  • Defining secondary markets for energy efficiency 
  • Energy efficiency-related secondary market transactions to date 
  • Perspectives of key actors in secondary market transactions 
  • Considerations for program administrators in weighing the pursuit of secondary market capital against other program objectives 

This series is brought to you by the State and Local Energy Efficiency Action Network (SEE Action) Financing Solutions Working Group, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), and the Yale Center for Business and the Environment's Clean Energy Finance Forum.
