How do you finance energy efficiency? Join us to explore innovative models and find out what works, and why. Our dynamic event will help you get started on financing projects that save energy, reduce costs, and create jobs.
We want you to succeed, because the energy efficiency revolution will be impossible without effective financing options. Energy Efficiency financing is already a multi-billion dollar industry, but it has the potential to become hundreds of billions of dollars.
For more than a decade, the Finance Forum has brought together a diverse mix of participants. We welcome clean-tech investors, financiers, real estate professionals, policymakers, efficiency program planners, NGO members as well as the staff of utilities and energy companies.
