Energy Efficiency Finance Forum Overview

How do you finance energy efficiency? The 2018 Finance Forum will explore innovative models and find out what works, and why. Our dynamic event will help attendees 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 over a decade, the Finance Forum has brought together a diverse mix of participants.

Learn more about sponsorship opportunities or the program by contacting financeforum@aceee.org.

Likely participants include: Clean-tech and energy efficiency investors; financiers; real estate professionals; CDFIs and other mission-driven lenders; entrepreneurs; utility staff; local, state, and federal agency personnel; energy service company personnel; policymakers; NGOs; energy efficiency program planners, operators, and evaluators; and marketing experts.
