Energy Efficiency Investment
The impact of investments in energy efficiency extends well beyond reducing energy costs or addressing the environmental impacts of energy extraction and use. These investments provide jobs for American workers and help them to support their families and communities.
This month, ACEEE hosted its 6th Annual Energy Efficiency Finance Forum in Boston, Massachusetts. The event was attended by 250 representatives from utilities, banks, venture capital firms, energy efficiency program offices, real estate firms, nonprofit organizations, consulting firms, and state and local government offices. Participants enjoyed a rich program that featured presentations centered on this year’s theme of “Getting to Scale.”
This post is the third of three on sustaining local energy efficiency efforts. The first post described trends in local implementation of energy efficiency. The second was about the challenges and successes of local energy planning around the United States.
